Hyundai recalls nearly 44,000 U.S. for faulty steering columns

Hyundai recalls 43,941 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe sports crossovers. Other 8,456 vehicles in Canada were also recalled for the possible defect. There were no injuries or accidents associated with the defect or incidents where the defect was discovered while a vehicle was in motion.
The recall includes vehicles that were manufactured between July and October 2017 at Hyundai’s Alabama-based manufacturing plant. The automaker reports in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents that these SUVs could have been manufactured with “defective steering wheel” parts and that no other models from Hyundai or Genesis were affected. Read more

Goodyear's Oxygene tire releases oxygen and absorbs carbon

While several companies are still talking about creating “green” products, Goodyear introduces the concept version of a tire, called Oxygene. The concept tire debuted at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. It features a unique open structure in which a heat-resistant moss is encouraged to grow inside the sidewall thanks to the smart tread design, which absorbs and circulates moisture it picks up from the road, all managed by an AI system. It also inhales carbon dioxide from the air to feed the moss.
The Oxygene concept features a lightweight, non-pneumatic construction using 3D-printed rubber powder sourced from recycled tires. Michelin has similarly 3D-printed tire concepts. Last year the company unveiled its airless Vision concept tire that recharges its treads via 3D printing technology to adjust to seasonal road conditions, and features a tread inspired by nature that is similarly made from sustainable materials. Like that one, the Oxygene is airless and puncture-free, with a shock-absorbing open tread structure that improves grip in wet conditions. Read more

Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs will boost vehicle prices

The auto industry is warning that US sales declines, which have been consistent over the past year, may continue thanks to tariffs US President Donald Trump plans to slap on steel and aluminum imports.
Toyota Motor, which plans to build a new $1.6 billion factory in Alabama with Mazda Motor, said the administration’s decision will “adversely impact” car companies by raising costs and prices of cars and trucks sold in the US. That’s even as more than 90 percent of the steel that Asia’s biggest carmaker uses in the US is from that country. Trade groups representing automakers including General Motors Co and Toyota, plus parts suppliers like Robert Bosch GmbH, tried to warn the Trump administration of unintended consequences. That’s before the president said Thursday he plans to order tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum. Read more

Ferrari takes the wraps off from its new track-focused supercar

Ferrari takes the wraps off from its new track-focused supercarFerrari finally took the wraps off their hard-core, track-focused supercar with 720hp. The 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista is officially the most powerful V8 Ferrari in history and it boasts hypercar-rivaling performance.


It is going to be a tall order for the Porsche to go toe to toe with this one. Not only is Ferrari 488Pista a lot more powerful, at 1280 kg dry it is also about 200 kg lighter. In fact, the Pista is an impressive 90 kg lighter than the regular 488 GTB. The performance figures also show a clear superiority: 0-100 km/h in 2.85” and 0 -200 km/h in 7.6”, with a top speed of 340 km/h.

BMW has installed the wrong software on its luxury models

BMW has installed the wrong software on its luxury modelsBMW has just discovered that it has installed the wrong programming on its luxury 5 and 7-series models. Due to this issue, all the models with the unsuitable software would be recalled. The automaker did inform the relevant authorities immediately after the problem has been discovered.

BMW issued the statement after a report in news suggested it had installed software that manipulated emissions of harmful gases such as nitrogen oxide, something its management has always denied. Competitor Volkswagen reached a multi-billion-dollar U.S. settlement after admitting installing so-called "defeat devices" on its diesel models designed to game emissions testsVW has been roiled by the diesel emissions scandal, which has forced it to set aside 25.8 billion euros ($31.7 billion) to cover fines and related costs, of which it has paid out nearly 20 billion euros.

Less car buyers consider switching to electric cars

Just 200,000 plug-in electric cars were sold in the U.S. last year. Although that’s the highest number yet, it’s still just a little more than 1 percent of the market. Nowadays the general car-buying public at large is aware that EVs exist, but most of them consider that electric cars are not viable and practical.
According to the recent data from California, the state’s buyers are no more aware of electric vehicles than they were three years ago, when far fewer of them were available. This makes electric-car advocates worry that growing electric-car sales will arrive only through “regulatory forcing” rather than genuine consumer demand. Green Car Reports asked their Twitter followers what it would take to get more mass-market U.S. buyers to consider plug-in electric cars for future vehicle purchases. Four options were offered in their Twitter poll. Read more

Improper inspections lead Nissan to low profits:


Improper inspections lead Nissan to low profits:

It seems like Nissan isn’t doing as great as we thought. Its sales went down due to high costs from improper final inspection procedures at home and higher discounts in the U.S.. Nissan’s quarterly operating profit was 82.4 billion yen ($752 million) between October and December, down from 163.51 billion a year earlier.
The automaker took a 39.6 billion yen hit in the quarter due to costs related to improper procedures for final inspections on vehicles produced at its Japan plants, while U.S. marketing and sales expenses, which include incentives, cost the automaker 41.8 billion yen. Nissan admitted the inspection issue late last year, which resulted in the recall of around 1.2 million vehicles.

'Grid girls' will no longer be used by Formula 1

‘Grid girls’ who conducted certain promotional tasks, usually wearing clothing that bears the name of a sponsor, will no longer be used by Formula 1. Their use has become the subject of debate as social attitudes have changed, and some races have begun to experiment with alternatives, such as using male models instead of female, or children as mascots.
F1 commercial chief Sean Bratches claims they feel this custom does not resonate with their brand values and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms. The use of female models, even if not as scantily-clad as in the past, has been increasingly criticized in a sport that is now under U.S.-based ownership following Liberty Media’s takeover last year. Several players criticised the move and a petition from fans for the PDC to change its mind was signed by more than 30,000 people. Read more

8 vehicles to prove that Ford has the finest performance cars

Over the years, Ford has put out no shortage of impressive performance cars. It seems that its performance lineup has a vehicle for everyone, whether you want a pickup truck, a hot hatch or even a supercar.

Ford managed to get together eight of its high-performance cars at the Motorland race circuit in Aragon, Spain, along with eight drivers from the Chip Ganassi Racing crew that competes in the World Endurance Championship, NASCAR, and more. The eight cars are the outgoing Ford Fiesta ST, the F-150 Raptor, the Ford Mustang GT, the new Ford Fiesta ST, the Ford Focus RS, the Shelby GT350, the Ford GT and the GT LM GTE-Pro race car. Read more

Hotel valet gives Ferrari 458 Spider keys to the wrong man

Florida attorney James Fowler, 73, filed a lawsuit against Marriott International for negligence because he alleges a hotel valet gave the keys to his $300,000 yellow 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia Spider to a couple later found in possession of marijuana and cocaine.
The valet attendant told police things got very busy. At some point, a man, identified as Levi Miles, 28, asked for keys to the Ferrari. Then he got in the car with Chloe Rimmer, 24, a woman he met at the hotel that night. The police report says the man “seemed to be impatient”. The pair sat in the car for “quite a while.” The valet told police he stopped paying attention when he “figured he was not getting a tip,” and eventually the Ferrari drove off. About 12:30 a.m., the couple’s joyride came to an abrupt end when a police officer noticed the Ferrari‘s taillights were out and pulled the vehicle over. Read more
