Hyundai Elantra recalled due to airbag fault

Hyundai Australia has issued a recall of 28 examples of its Elantra with Model Years from 2008 to 2009 (MY08-MY09), due to a potentially dangerous airbag issue. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says "if the airbag inflator ruptures during airbag deployment, metal fragments may propel towards the vehicle occupants at high speeds". It goes on to say the airbag may also under-inflate in an accident.

McLaren is selling its headquarters for 'in excess of $352 million'

British automotive brand McLaren has placed its United Kingdom headquarters up for sale, to be priced "in excess of £200 million (AUD$325 million)" in an effort to recoup funds amid a dramatic decline in revenue. The Woking, Surrey, site has been in McLaren's possession since 2004, but the company is hoping to sell it before the end of this financial year under a proposed sale-and-leaseback that could see McLaren become a tenant in its own HQ.
