Mercedes-Benz selling vehicle upgrades through MBUX

Mercedes has made much of its new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system, with its natural voice input and clever augmented-reality capability. As it turns out, the system will also allow owners to remotely unlock certain functions after they've bought the car. Owners of the latest-generation A-Class, B-Class and GLE will be able to add things like digital radio, smartphone mirroring, and factory navigation once they've actually taken delivery of their car.

2018 Bentley Continental GT recalled

Bentley has recalled the 2018 Continental GT, over concerns about an issue with its electric power steering unit. According to the company, a software fault could make drivers lost power assistance momentarily, forcing them to apply extra force to the steering wheel. Should the power assistance stop at an inopportune moment, both the driver and other road users are at increased risk of an accident. A total of 142 vehicles are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

2014 Lexus IS250C, IS F added to Takata recall

Lexus has added the 2014 IS250C and IS F to the Takata recall list, expanding on a campaign initially launched in January 2018. As with all Takata-related recall notices, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade. If a car fitted with a faulty inflator is involved in an accident where the airbag is triggered, metal fragments may shoot into the cabin, putting vehicle occupants at risk of serious injury or fatality.
