Hyundai still undecided on i30 N line-up

Hyundai Australia is still considering whether it should bring one or two models of its i30 N hot hatch as it gears up for the launch of its very first serious performance car in the first quarter of next year. The South Korean brand has the option of bringing in a ‘base model' i30 N in addition to the high-performance variant. The two-tier approach is similar to what its main target, Volkswagen, offers with the Golf GTi and its performance pack.

2011-14 Jeep Grand Cherokee recalled

Jeep has issued a recall for 26,985 vehicles across its 2011-2014 'WK' Grand Cherokee model line, over concerns previous recall work on the brake booster may have been incorrectly installed. The original notice, issued in April 2014, involved a brake booster centre shell that may corrode over time and allow water to enter. Should the water enter the centre shell and freeze, the vehicle's braking ability would be hindered, increasing the risk of an accident.
