2018 Hyundai i30 recalled

Hyundai Australia has recalled the 2018 i30 over concerns about its electric sunroof motor. According to the company, some batches of sunroof motors have had the incorrect software installed and mightn't have automatic safety stop. If someone puts their hand or arm in the path of the sunroof, the motor will keep closing the glass, putting people at risk of injury. A total of 95 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Nissan Sylphy: Pulsar-class sedan unveiled, won't be coming to Australia

The new Nissan Sylphy was unveiled at the 2019 Shanghai motor show. While it will likely be sold in many markets throughout the world, Australia isn't on the list. As with the latest Versa, the new Sylphy has a more modern and appealing design than the outgoing model. Many styling elements are borrowed from the larger Altima sedan, including the deep V-motion grille, headlight shape and the black plastic bar across the C-pillar.
