Deals on Wheels: What are the top 10 brands offering?

New vehicle sales in Australia have been receding for 11 successive months – compared to the corresponding month in the previous year – which after four years of sales records tumbling has come as a bit of a shock to the system. Headwinds like the overall slowing economy, weak house prices in NSW and Victoria, looming finance sector reform, the drought, and of course the imminent federal election are all playing funny buggers.

2018 Subaru Outback Diesel recalled

Subaru has recalled the 2018 Outback Diesel, over concerns some vehicles might have been fitted with an incorrect oil pipe. According to the company, affected vehicles are fitted with an oil pipe that's too small on the inside. That could leave the turbo's turbine bearing short of oil, which in turn could make it wear prematurely or seize and fracture. If the turbine blade fractures, the fragments might be ingested by the engine, which could make the engine stop and fail to restart.
