Audi Q7 and Q8 recalled due to transmission leak

Audi Australia has issued a recall of seven examples of its brand-new 2020-2021 Q7 (shown above) and 2019-2021 Q8 SUVs due to a transmission leak. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says an oil pipe fitted to the transmission may have been welded incorrectly, which can result in a leak.

McLaren confirms 186 Australian cars involved in global recall

British supercar maker McLaren has confirmed 186 Australian cars are included in a global recall issued in April for a fire hazard. The 186 McLaren cars span 2017-2020 model year 720S coupe and spider, Senna, 570GT and GT models sold between 31 August 2016 and 29 March 2020. Included cars are susceptible to an increased risk of fire due to a noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) pad fitted to the fuel tank that can trap moisture, eventually leading to corrosion and leakage from the tank.
