2015-17 Mazda CX-3 Diesel recalled

Mazda has recalled the 2015-2017 CX-3 Diesel, over concerns about the engine's behaviour when run at high revs in Neutral or Park. According to the company, operating the engine at high revs in Park or Neutral could make the engine draw in residual oil accumulated in the engine intake. If this happens, Mazda says the engine could go into its "over-run condition", running uncontrollably at high revs until it's damaged or fails. This could pose a risk to the owner or other road users.

Alpina chasing 'balance' in Australia

With a small population and lots of carmakers – 50, to be precise – Australia is a tough place to launch a new car brand, even when that brand is a German icon with more than five decades of experience. Since officially launching locally two years ago, the team behind Alpina has sought to spread the word without creating an un-fulfillable rush. Speaking with media at an event in Melbourne, Phil Jeffery, Alpina Australia sales manager, says establishing the brand locally is a balancing act.
