Range Rover 'L322' added to Takata recall

Jaguar Land Rover Australia has added 1088 Range Rover 'L322' models to the ever-expanding Takata airbag recall. As with all Takata-related recalls, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade over time. If a car with an affected airbag is involved in an accident, the metal inflator can rupture or explode under the pressure, sending metal fragments shooting into the cabin. A total of 1088 Range Rovers are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Skoda will apply RS badge to electric SUV - report

Skoda will slap its RS performance badge on its upcoming electric crossover, according to a new report from the UK. According to Autocar, the hotted-up electric SUV – likely to be badged 'eRS' – will touch down in 2022, just over 12 months after the regular production models are revealed. Don't expect the car to be 100 per cent performance-focused, though. “There will be a vRS version of our future electric car,” Alain Favey, Skoda sales and marketing head, told the British publication.

Chiko Roll car gearing up for its 30th Variety Bash

The annual Variety Bash attracts all kinds of interesting and unique metal, but John Lindsell still knows how to stand out from the crowd. The giant Chiko Roll on the roof of his car probably helps. Lindsell is gearing up to take his 1964 Wolseley 2480 and its tasty roof ornament on its 30th Variety Bash this year, driving from Bonnyrigg to Alice Springs in support of the charity, which provides wheelchairs, mobility equipment, scholarships and learning aids to disadvantaged children.

2017 Mercedes-Benz V-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the 2017 V-Class, over concerns about the front-seat wiring loom fasteners. According to the company, the swivelling function on the front seats could make the wiring loom come loose. If the loom comes loose, it could make the side airbags randomly activate. The red SRS light on the dashboard will illuminate, and the airbags might not inflate in an accident, increasing the risk of injury to occupants.
