When will luxury cars get five-year warranty?

Pressure is mounting on luxury car brands to boost their warranties to five years or more, now that nine of the Top 10 brands offer extended coverage as standard. In particular the decision by car giants Toyota and Volkswagen to increase their warranties from three to five years from January 1, 2019 has made it increasingly difficult for their respective luxury affiliates Lexus and Audi to hold out.

2018 Ram 1500 recalled

American Special Vehicles has issued a recall for the Ram 1500 over concerns a loose cable could cause the parking brake to become "difficult to operate". The conversion firm reports the outer cable sheath for the park brake may have slipped through the end fitting. If the condition occurs, the park brake could also fail, meaning the vehicle is unable to be secured. This increases the risk of an accident, and also poses an injury risk to the vehicle's occupants and other road users.
