Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Hummer recalls announced

A trio of carmakers have issued recalls in Australia over the past week, including Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and, by way of GM Holden, the retired Hummer brand. For Mercedes-Benz, nearly 1800 examples of its A-Class and B-Class hatches sold between September 2012 and June 30 2013 may be affected. The German carmaker reports that in both model ranges, a fault with the drive shaft retaining rings could cause a loss of drive in extreme driving situations.

Hummer sales decline

Hummer sales have started to decline worldwide, leading to suggestions that GM might drop the brand altogether. The main cause is fuel prices, with some analysts estimating it could hit $2/litre by year's end. To add to Hummer's worries, GM CEO Rick Wagoner has been slowly downplaying Hummer's role at GM. One American analyst went as far as to say "Hummer is the fat man in the lifeboat who might be tossed overboard".
