2020 Mitsubishi Outlander recalled for seat belt fault

Mitsubishi Australia has issued a recall for a total of 1948 cars, citing an incorrectly assembled seat belt anchor on the rear right seat of the current generation Outlander SUV. Both the regular petrol-powered models and plug-in-hybrid variants have been affected, the company says. A spokesperson for Mitsubishi Australia told CarAdvice the problem stemmed from the right rear seats being fitted with shoulder anchors designed for the left side of the car.

Tesla banned from promoting Autopilot after German court ruling

American electric car maker Tesla has been banned from using the term 'Autopilot' when advertising its semi-autonomous driving technology in Germany, after a Munich court ruled the claims were "misleading consumers". On July 14, the Munich Regional Court ruled in favour of a German competition group which argued Tesla's German website was suggesting its cars "could and should drive autonomously by the end of 2019".
