2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD recalled

Premoso Pty Ltd has recalled the MY18 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, over concerns the rear-right and rear-centre seatbelt buckles. According to the company they may have been torqued incorrectly, which could undermine their effectiveness in a crash. Obviously, that puts occupants in those seats at greater risk of injury in an accident. Just six utes are affected by the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

Ford Ranger Raptor: Why can it only tow 2500kg?

One of the biggest complaints most of you had – outside of engine performance – about the Ford Ranger Raptor launched in Darwin this week was the lack of towing capacity and payload. Why can't the Ranger Raptor tow or carry as much load as its counterparts? It mainly comes down to the suspension.

Audi e-tron launch pushed to September 17

Audi has announced a revised launch date for its e-tron quattro, with the all-electric crossover set to debut in San Francisco on September 17. That's almost a month later than initially planned, after Audi CEO Rupert Stadler's arrest forced the company to revise the rollout of its first mass-produced fully-electric vehicle. North American buyers will be able to lay down a US$1000 ($1350) deposit and configure their cars ahead of the launch – the deposit is refundable, naturally.

Ford GT and Mustang recalled for Takata airbags

Mustang Motorsport and Crossover Car Conversions have issued a recall for the 2005-06 Ford GT and 2005-14 Ford Mustang as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. Like other notices relating to Takata airbags, the inflator propellant could degrade over time due to high temperatures and humidity. If the condition occurs, the airbag inflator could rupture when deployed in an accident, shooting metal fragments into the cabin – posing a risk of injury, even death, to the vehicle's occupants.
