2019 Audi A4, A5 recalled

Audi has recalled the 2019 A4 and A5, over concerns about the shock absorbers. According to the company, the car's shock absorber could fail and make suspension components separate while driving. If that happens, there's a chance the driver will lose control, increasing the risk of an accident. A total of 18 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here. Audi will contact owners of the affected cars and tell them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealership.

Renault Megane: Non-'Renault Sport' models axed in Australia

Renault has removed the non-Renault Sport Megane from its Australian range, as it looks to move the model upmarket and put the RS brand in the spotlight. Although some mainstream hatch, wagon and sedan stock remains in dealerships, the model has been removed from the Renault Australia website, leaving only the GT, GT-Line and RS hatch the brand considers 'Renault Sport Megane' models.
