2015-16 Mercedes-AMG GT S recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for the 2015-16 model-year GT S supercar over concerns of a potential transmission failure. "The adhesive connection of the drive shaft to the engine/transmission flange may not meet specifications," the company reports. "This may lead to the development of unusual noise, transmission malfunctions or, in certain cases, to loss of connection between the engine and transmission."

2019-20 Jaguar F-Type V6 recalled for being too noisy

The 2020 Jaguar F-Type has been recalled due to models with the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 making too much noise. It appears you can have too much of a good thing, because Jaguar says the "static noise level exceeds the regulated maximum decibel limit" in the F-Type V6. A total of 28 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here. Jaguar will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free 'fix' with their nearest dealership.

Nissan unveils Ford Ranger Raptor rival 

Nissan has unveiled a high-riding, high-powered ute in the US with cues from the Ford Ranger Raptor. However, it’s just motor show tease for now as Nissan's star of the 2019 SEMA auto exhibition. The Nissan Frontier is the equivalent to the Nissan Navara in the US, selling alongside the full-size Nissan Titan pick-up. For the auto show concept, Nissan swapped out the 4.0-litre V6 and replaced it with a 5.6-litre V8 found in the Nissan Titan – and our Nissan Patrol.
