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.

2017-19 Lamborghini Aventador S recalled

Lamborghini has recalled the 2017-19 Aventador S and Aventador S Roadster, over concerns about the engine's ability to maintain idle. According to the company, a software fault means the engine might not maintain the minimum idle speed required to stay running. If the engine can't idle, it could stall. Although the engine can be restarted after a stall, the issue still increases the risk of an accident or injury to other road users.

2011-18 Mercedes-Benz G-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled the 2011-2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class over concerns the ABS hydraulic unit may be faulty. According to the company, driving over corrugated roadways could make the brake lines in the ABS hydraulic unit crack, creating a brake fluid leak and impeding the car's stopping distance. If the ABS braking power is impacted, longer stopping distances increase the risk of an accident or injury.
