2019 BMW 3 Series leaked via online configurator

The seventh-generation BMW 3 Series has been leaked via an online configurator that went live a little ahead of schedule. These computer-generated images show the car in 330i M Sport (blue) and M340i trims (black). For the first time they also show us the car's notched headlight design, which, to our eyes, recalls the fourth-generation (E46) model.

2010-14 Subaru Outback, Liberty recalled

Subaru has recalled the 2010-2014 Outback and Liberty, over concerns about their electric parking brakes. According to the company, if the parking brake circuit board fractures a warning light will illuminate and the brake can't be applied or released. That puts the cars in breach of Australian Design Rules (ADR) for motor vehicles. A total of 19,479 Liberty models and 23,210 Outback examples are impacted – VIN lists are attached to the respective model names.
