2018-19 Mahindra XUV500 recalled

Mahindra has recalled the 2018 and 2019 XUV500 SUV over concerns about the car entering 'limp home mode'. According to the company, pressing the brake and accelerator at the same time could make the car enter 'limp home mode'. Although the engine doesn't cut out, engine and road speeds are restricted, increasing your risk of accident. A total of 83 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Ssangyong Australia well behind sales targets

Ssangyong is only on track to sell around half its initial target after 12 months of business, after re-launching in Australia with the Musso, Rexton and Tivoli in 2018. Ssangyong Australia boss Tim Smith was shy about sharing numbers, but said figures be officially on the VFACTS industry report at the end of May. That target was 3000 vehicle sales in a 12-month period, but a number closer to 1500 now looks more likely.
