How Australia's love of V8s and utes has revived local automotive skills

Australia’s love of V8s and utes is reviving jobs and skills that many feared would be lost forever. Local car manufacturing died two years ago, but from the ashes a new industry has emerged. As sales of utes continue to hit record levels – they were the top three selling vehicles outright last month – and demand for V8s has not waned, car giants Ford and Nissan have announced partnerships with local engineering firms that will tailor imported vehicles to better suit Australian buyer tastes.

2018 Peugeot 3008 recalled

Peugeot Australia has issued a recall for the 2018 model-year 3008 SUV, due to a child-seat anchor point being incorrectly fitted to the front passenger seat. Just like the notice for the Citroen C3 earlier this week, Australian laws do not allow the front airbag to be switched off, which means a child seat can't be fitted in the front. According to Peugeot, a top-tether child seat anchor point has been fitted to the passenger seat when it shouldn't have been.
