2004-09 Dodge Ram added to Takata recall

Queensland's Maracoonda Automotive has issued a recall for converted Dodge Ram utes sold between 2004 and 2010 as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. As with all Takata notices, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause airbag inflator propellant to degrade over time.

Tesla brings back free Supercharging for Model X and S

Tesla has revived free Supercharging for Model S and Model X customers, despite previously describing the program as "unsustainable". There is a catch, however. The offer lasts as long as the buyer has their car, but it only applies to the first owner – the second owner will have to pay like everyone else.

2020 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo facelift spied

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo facelift has been spied in southern Europe during a spot of hot weather testing. The prototype's front and rear bumpers, as well as the headlights and part of the bonnet, are covered in disguise tape, but none of the car's metal panels look as though they've been altered. It's hard to see what changes BMW is planning to make the Gran Turismo's bumpers, but we suspect they'll be given a more aggressive design.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC220, E300 recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled four cars across the GLC220 and E300 model lines, over concerns about the crankshaft. According to the company, the affected cars could be fitted with a crankshaft bearing surface damage caused by a manufacturing error. The crankshaft could fail, causing 'sudden engine damage' that stops the car, increasing the risk of injury or accident to occupants and other road users. A total of four cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.
