Nissan: Apple CarPlay coming soon

Nissan Australia has confirmed it is working to bring Apple CarPlay compatibility to its range, but it's yet to provide a concrete time-frame – nor a definitive model – for the smartphone-mirroring technology's local debut. Speaking with CarAdvice at the local launch of the updated Qashqai SUV (stay tuned for the review on Friday), the new local Nissan boss, Stephen Lester, said Apple CarPlay will become the norm in the range "very soon".

2018 Volkswagen Golf, Passat, Arteon recalled

Volkswagen Australia has issued a recall notice for a handful of Passats, one Golf and one Arteon, to correct an issue with the rear-wheel bearing housing. According to the company, the rear-wheel bearing housing on a total of 64 vehicles may have been manufactured with insufficient case hardening. In worst-case scenarios, the wheel-bearing might fracture, which may significantly impact the "road-holding of the vehicle" and pose a greater accident risk.

Talking crate engines with Jeep Performance at SEMA

I recently attended SEMA 2017 on behalf of CarAdvice and StreetFX, to check out some of the aftermarket goodies on show. In this video, we have a chat to Todd Beddick, product manager in the Jeep Performance Division, to discuss the range of Mopar crate engines you can buy off-the-shelf for your project car. The program removes a lot of the guesswork usually involved in getting a project going, by taking car of complex elements like the ECU.
