Holden Trax, Barina, Cruze recalled in QLD and NT

Holden has added 2013 Trax, 2012-13 Barina and 2010-13 Cruze models registered in the Northern Territory and Queensland to the Takata recall list. As is the case with all cars included in the Takata campaign, affected vehicles are fitted with airbags where high temperatures and humidity can make the propellant degrade. If an affected vehicle is in an accident where the airbags are triggered, the housing could rupture and metal fragments could shoot out and injure (or kill) occupants.

2019 Chevrolet Volt upgraded with faster charging

Chevrolet has announced a new, faster charging system for its Volt hybrid, helping halve the time required for a full battery. The 7.2kW charger is aimed at owners who like "opportunity charging" – plugging in for a quick top-up when the chance arises – and drops full recharge time to 2.3 hours when hooked up to the right kind of socket. With a full charge, the Volt will still do a claimed 85km on pure-electric power, or 675km utilising both the petrol range extender and electric power.
