Honda Australia looking to fill the gap below HR-V

Honda Australia is looking to fill the gap below the popular Honda HR-V small SUV because, presumably, it’s not small enough for some consumers. The HR-V is one of the larger small SUVs in the segment, with other competitors like the Mazda CX-3 and Suzuki Ignis (if you can call it an SUV) being dwarfed by Honda’s current smallest SUV.

2007-2012 Mitsubishi Outlander recalled for wiper fix: 46,000 vehicles affected

Mitsubishi has issued a recall for 46,263 examples of its previous-generation 2007 to 2012 model-year 'ZG' and 'ZH' Outlander SUVs over concerns the windscreen wipers could fail. The Japanese company reports that water could enter between the bonnet and windscreen, causing the front wiper link ball joint to corrode. If the condition occurs, the link could separate and cause the wipers to become inoperative. Loss of wiper function can reduce visibility and increase the risk of an accident.
