2014-15 Ford Kuga recalled

Ford Australia has issued a recall for the Kuga crossover built between December 2014 and September 2015, over concerns an oil leak could develop. The Blue Oval reports the condition could occur if the engine overheats, resulting in a loss of engine oil. Should this happen, oil on the road can create a safety hazard for other road users. Affected Kuga units were produced from 13 December 2014 until 25 September 2015. The VIN list for the 1075 affected vehicles can be viewed here.

Tesla Model S, X to gain Model 3-inspired interior - report

Although Tesla is spending most of its time and energy ramping up production of the Model 3, as well as making itself profitable, its flagship models seem likely to get new, probably controversial, interiors. Elektrek has obtained and published a few mockups of proposed designs for the new interior. The publication believes a new cabin will be fitted to Model S and Model X production vehicles starting in 2019.

Mercedes-Benz Vito, Viano and Valente join Takata recall

Mercedes-Benz has added the Vito, Viano and Valente sold between January 2, 2018 and December 31, 2014, to the ever-expanding Takata recall list. As is the case with all Takata-equipped vehicles, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade. If a vehicle with a faulty inflator is involved in a crash, metal fragments can shoot into the cabin, putting passengers at risk of serious injury or death.
