For this edition of the Configurator Challenge, we’re designing our dream Aston Martin DB11. Let us know what you think in the comments, and which cars you’d like to see next!

Ford Focus: Through the generations

The all-new 2018 Ford Focus has just been revealed, and will be lobbing in Australian showrooms towards year's end – but how did it get to where it is now? We thought we'd take a look back on the previous three generations of Ford's popular small car, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, coinciding with the launch of its fourth iteration.

2013-14 Subaru Forester manual diesel recalled

Subaru Australia has recalled 2013-2014 Foresters with a diesel engine and manual transmission, over concerns a wiring loom could rub against the clutch pipe, causing a short circuit. According to the company, if the wiring loom insulation wears out, there's a risk of the engine stalling and not restarting. If the condition occurs, it increases the risk of an accident. A total of 1876 vehicles are caught in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

Isuzu Ute Australia's sales success tracked

Isuzu’s non-truck products have been on sale for decades in Australia, once wearing Holden badges. Remember the Jackaroo SUV and Rodeo ute, precursor to today’s Colorado? But the brand has only eponymously sold its wares here as Isuzu Ute for about a decade, over which time it has become a genuinely mainstream, successful player in a hyper-competitive market, appealing to those after hardcore machines capable of copping a beating.

Toyota expands Takata recall

Toyota Australia has issued a notice for previous-generation 2013 Corolla, Rukus and Yaris models as part of the ongoing Takata airbag recall. Affected vehicles are fitted with potentially-deadly passenger airbags, which are susceptible to moisture intrusion over time – this is an extension of the recall issued this time last year, where 111,214 Corolla, Rukus and Yaris units were affected.
