2017-19 Toyota Coaster recalled

Toyota Australia has recalled the 2017-19 Coaster bus, over concerns about the front hazard lamps. According to the company, too much use of the hazard lamps could blow the fuse, making the hazard – or warning – lamps and indicators inoperative. If the hazard or indicator lamps are inoperative, other road users won't be able tell when the driver is turning, and the driver won't be able to warn other road users about potential danger using the hazard lights.

Nissan Pathfinder: More than 6000 cars recalled over fire risk

Nissan has recalled more than 6000 Pathfinder large SUVs in Australia, as part of a wider global campaign involving more than 450,000 vehicles. A faulty oil seal in the antilock braking system (ABS) assembly could cause a brake fluid leak in affected Pathfinders, which can create an electrical short that, in extreme cases, leads to a fire.

2019-20 Jaguar F-Type V6 recalled for being too noisy

The 2020 Jaguar F-Type has been recalled due to models with the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 making too much noise. It appears you can have too much of a good thing, because Jaguar says the "static noise level exceeds the regulated maximum decibel limit" in the F-Type V6. A total of 28 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here. Jaguar will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free 'fix' with their nearest dealership.
