2016-18 Mazda BT-50 recalled over two issues

Mazda has recalled the 2016-18 BT-50 over two separate brake issues, following in the footsteps of Ford and the Ranger. Where Ford issued separate recall notices for the Ranger, Mazda has bundled the BT-50s affected into one basket. The first issue surrounds the front brake hose. If cars have covered more than 45,000km and have been used on roads requiring the full range of suspension travel, there's a risk a hose could rupture.

2010-14 Volkswagen Polo recalled for Takata airbags

2010-14 Volkswagen Polo models sold in Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia have been recalled to have their faulty driver-side Takata airbags replaced. As with all Takata recalls, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade over time. If a car with an affected inflator is involved in an accident, there's a risk the inflator housing will rupture under too much internal pressure, sending shrapnel shooting into the cabin.

2001-07 Honda Accord, 2003-06 MDX recalled for Takata airbags

Honda has recalled 2001-07 Accord and 2003-06 MDX models fitted with like-for-like Takata airbag inflators between March 1, 2015 and December 31, 2017. As with all Takata-related recalls, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag inflator propellant degrade over time. If a car fitted with an affected airbag is involved in an accident, too much internal pressure can make its metal housing rupture, sending shrapnel into the cabin.
