Porsche Cars Australia has recalled 5328 examples of its model-years 2014 to 2019 Macan, Macan S, Macan GTS and Macan Turbo. The recall relates to a risk that the service cover for the fuel pump may come into contact with the fuel filter flange if the rear seats are occupied, potentially damaging the flange.

2014-16 Ford F-250, F-350 recalled

Performax has recalled the 2014-16 Ford F-250 and F-350, over concerns their tie-rod ends could fail prematurely. According to the company, dry steering – turning the wheel while the car is stationary – can make the tie-rod end fail. If it fails the tie-rod end could come loose or break, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users. A total of 148 cars are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.
