2007-12 Hyundai i30: More than 106,000 cars recalled

Hyundai Australia has recalled more than 106,000 examples of the 2007-12 i30, over concerns the airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners could inadvertently fire. According to the company, "improper programming" of the airbag control unit (ACU) could make the driver and passenger airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners deploy when there's been no accident. If the airbag fires randomly, there's an increased risk of accident for both the driver and other road users.

From the start of 2020, the West Australian Government will scrap the regular updates it provides to the public on exactly where the police have installed mobile speed cameras on any given day. It was a helpful service, allowing alert motorists to navigate the state’s road network without fear of getting busted by a camera.

The truth about Toyota Hybrid delays: Corolla, Camry and RAV4

Toyota Australia says reports of 12-month delays on certain hybrid models are greatly exaggerated, and most cars on the waiting list will be delivered in less than half that time.

Powered by a five-cylinder turbocharged engine, the RS2 made 235kW of power and boasted an "extravagant interior design" to go with its bright blue paintwork.
