2018 Hyundai iMax, iLoad recalled

Hyundai Australia has recalled the 2018 iMax and iLoad, over concerns about the locking mechanism on the rear doors. According to the company, the locking mechanism on the rear sliding door could be defective and unable to hold the door open. When the vehicle is parked facing downhill, the holding mechanism could fail, making the door slide forward and slam shut. This puts people – "especially the limbs" – at risk of "serious bodily injury".

2019 Jeep Wrangler handed devastating 1 Star Euro NCAP result

The all-new 2019 Jeep Wrangler has been given a stinging one-star safety rating in the latest round of assessments from independent body, Euro NCAP. The fourth-generation JL Wrangler, revealed earlier this year, was already out of the running for a five-star rating due to its lack of autonomous emergency braking at launch.
