Renault could reduce Nissan stake to revive Fiat Chrysler merger - report

Renault and Nissan are reportedly in talks to rebalance their alliance with the aim of restarting Renault's proposed merger with Fiat Chrysler (FCA). Sources have told The Wall Street Journal about the discussions, which centre around plans to reduce Renault's 43.4 per cent shareholding in Nissan. Any reduction in Renault's Nissan stake would require the approval of the French government, which holds a 15 per cent share and supersized voting rights in the French automaker.

2010 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 recalled

Fiat Chrysler Australia has recalled the 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 over concerns about the front track bar. According to FCA, the front track bar mounting bolt mightn't be tightened to specification. If it works loose, the issue could make a rattle or banging noise in certain conditions. It also creates a risk of steering loss, which increases the chance of an accident. A total of 18 utes are affected – a VIN list is attached here.
