Nissan Patrol V8 demand continues to surge as Aussies holiday at home

Australians planning to holiday at home are helping drive a sales surge of the Nissan Patrol four-wheel-drive – even as the overall car market posted two of its worst months in 30 years due to the coronavirus crisis. Nissan Australia has reportedly put in an urgent call for more Patrols out of the factory to keep up with local demand. Sales of the Nissan Patrol have increased for the past three months in a row compared to the same period last year.

2020 Volkswagen Touareg recalled for leak that could damage transmission

Volkswagen Australia has issued a recall of 72 examples of its 2020 Touareg SUV due to a transmission leak that could result in damage. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says an oil pipe fitted to the transmission may have been welded incorrectly, which can result in a leak. If left unattended, the transmission can lose “several litres” of fluid, which could lead to damage of the unit.
