2014-16 Ford F-250, F-350 recalled

Performax has recalled the 2014-16 Ford F-250 and F-350, over concerns their tie-rod ends could fail prematurely. According to the company, dry steering – turning the wheel while the car is stationary – can make the tie-rod end fail. If it fails the tie-rod end could come loose or break, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users. A total of 148 cars are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled the 2019 A-Class, over concerns the glass pane of the panoramic sliding sunroof mightn't be correctly bonded. According to the company, an incorrectly bonded sunroof will create wind noise in the short term, and could detach from the car in the long term. If the glass pane detaches, there's a risk of accident or injury for the driver and other road users. A total of three cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

2019/20 Hyundai Sonata, Kia Cerato tow bar wiring harness recalled

Hyundai and Kia have issued a recall for the tow bar wiring harness sold through official dealers and fitted to the Sonata and Cerato. Due to incorrect wiring, the faulty tow bar wiring harness might not allow the trailer hazard lights to flash when the car is turned off. If the hazards aren't operating correctly, there's a risk other road users mightn't see a stopped or slowing car, increasing the risk of accident. The original recall advertisement is attached here.

Audi to buy back 4000 cars in Australia due to faulty Takata airbags

Audi will become the second car company in Australia to buy back vehicles fitted with potentially deadly Takata airbags – and customers won't be allowed to keep their cars because Audi does not plan to develop airbag replacements for vehicles so old. Car companies have calculated that it is cheaper to buy back the vehicles rather than engineer and test replacement airbags.
