Mazda 2, 3, 6 recalled for seat fix

Mazda has recalled thousands of its previous-generation passenger cars this week, over concerns for faulty seat lifters. The recall centres on the seat height adjustment mechanism, which could see either the adjustment lifter link crack, or the lifter link retaining nuts separate. The Japanese car maker reports that if either were to occur, a worst-case scenario could see the lifter link break or come away from the seat frame, causing the seat to move out of position.

Ford Kuga recall still not confirmed, despite numerous reports of engine fires

Ford Australia has still not committed to recalling Kuga 1.6 models — unlike in South Africa, where it has done so — despite several engine fires being reported locally. Instead, Ford Australia says it is still speaking with affected owners (several of whom we have referred to higher levels of the company) and "investigating" whether it needs to call-in all Kugas with this engine for a fix.

2016 Jaguar XE recalled for fuel cooler fix

Jaguar has issued a recall for 76 of its 2016 model-year XE 2.0-litre turbo-diesel sedans, over concerns the fuel cooler could leak. The British luxury marque reports the underfloor diesel fuel cooler in affected vehicles may leak, which could cause a fuel odour to enter the cabin. Jaguar says, over time, drivers may also notice an increase in fuel consumption and puddles of liquid underneath the car when the vehicle is stationary.
