Ford Mustang: 10 millionth example rolls off the production line

Ford has celebrated the production of the 10 millionth Mustang at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan, more than five decades after the first example rolled off the line. As you'd expect, Ford has specced its modern milestone car to match the original... sort of. The car is a GT V8 Convertible finished in Wimbledon White, the same hue as the 1964.5 Mustang bearing VIN-001.

2018 Mazda CX-5 diesel, CX-8 recalled

Mazda has recalled diesel CX-5 and CX-8 models over concerns the engine might not restart when it's switched off. According to the company, the problem can leave owners stranded in a car that won't start, posing a hazard to both themselves and other road users. A total of 131 cars, sold between April 24 and May 28, 2018, are included in the campaign. A VIN list is attached here.

Citroen joins Takata recall

Citroen Australia has recalled vehicles across several model lines as part of the Takata airbag campaign, including the old-generation C3, C4, DS3, DS4 and DS5. As with all Takata-related notices, the affected airbag inflators can feature propellant that degrades over time due to humidity and high temperatures. Should the propellant degrade, the metal inflator housing could rupture if the airbags are deployed in the event of a collision, shooting metal fragments into the cabin.
