2013-16 Mercedes-Benz G-Class recalled for steering fix

Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall for approximately 170 examples its G-Class off-roader sold between April 2013 and April 2016 over concerns a faulty steering joint could cause loss of steering control. The German manufacturer reports that affected models may be equipped with bolts securing the lower steering joint that may not have been torqued correctly. Over time the condition could result in wear to the steering joint, causing a reduction of steering control.

2018 Ford Focus sedan spied

The next-generation Ford Focus sedan has been spied doing a spot of hot weather testing in southern Europe. We can see, despite a plethora of false panels and head-to-toe camouflage, Ford has ditched the six side window treatment used in all generations of the Focus sedan thus far. Like the five-door hatch, which was last spotted in February, the new sedan also has a prominent shoulder line gracing its side.
