2007-16 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter: Takata recall initiated

Mercedes-Benz has initiated its Takata recall for the Sprinter to replace both the driver and passenger inflators replaced. As with all Takata recalls, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade over time. If a vehicle with an affected inflator is involved in an accident, there's a risk the inflator housing could rupture under too much internal pressure, sending shrapnel flying into the cabin.

Australians charged $761 million each year for car batteries

A new study has revealed the impact flat batteries have on Australian consumers, and how prone we are to replacing them instead of recharging. The study, which was undertaken by research firm YouGov and commissioned by accessory company CTEK, found Australian consumers spent $761 million on car batteries and 8 million collective hours waiting for a battery replacement during the last 12 months. It also found Australians are three times more likely to replace a flat battery than recharge it.
