Alfa Romeo GTV, 8C and large crossover cancelled

In an earnings call held just hours after FCA and the PSA Group confirmed their intention to merge, the Italian-American automaker announced it was scaling back model plans for the Alfa Romeo brand. According to the company's last five-year plan, announced in June 2018, the marque's range would be bolstered by the addition of two crossovers, with one positioned below the Stelvio and one above based on an enlarged version of the Stelvio's platform.

2007 Jeep Compass and Dodge Caliber recalled

Fiat Chrysler Australia has recalled the 2007 Jeep Compass and Dodge Caliber, over concerns about the rear wheel hub mounting bolts. According to the company, the length of the rear wheel hub mounting bolts could prevent the use of the parking brake. Being unable to activate the parking brake could allow the car to roll away in certain conditions, putting occupants, pedestrians and other road users at risk. A total of 20 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Should the French automaker green light FCA's proposal, it will sign a non-binding agreement and enter formal negotiations on the details of a full merger between the two companies.
