Ford has lost track of some older Takata air bags that can explode and hurl shrapnel, so it's recalling more than 154,000 vehicles in North America to check for them. The company on Thursday issued two recalls, with the largest coming because Ford can't find 45 obsolete air bags that may have been installed on some old Ranger pickup trucks. The company says the air bags were not purged from the stock of service parts and could have been used in crash or theft repairs. This recall covers just over 153,000 Rangers from the 2004 through 2006 model years. In a smaller recall, Ford found just over 1,100 vehicles that may have gotten obsolete Takata air bags in collision repairs. Included are certain 2004 through 2011 Rangers, some 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, certain 2006 Ford GTs, some 2008 through 2012 Fusions and certain 2007 through 2010 Ford Edge SUVs. Also covered are certain 2009 to 2011 Mercury Milans, some 2010 through 2012 Lincoln MKZs, and certain 2007 through 2010 ... » Learn More about Ford loses track of dangerous air bags, forcing 2 recalls

Citroen has entered India with its flagship SUV C5 Aircross. It would be focusing on different body shapes as it brings more India-centric vehicles with high localisation and some astute pricing. Its new set of vehicles starting from C5 Aircross, would be extended beyond the traditional hatchbacks and sedans to some new offerings with the distinct taste of the ‘Century-old French car brand’. “We have been working closely on India plan to have the right kind of product with high local content. We are already making powertrains that are not just sourced but also exported. We are looking beyond C5 Aircross as we would harness our Jeep brand (part of the global alliance with FCA now called Stellantis ) for more SUVs. Citroen would be looking at its traditional product bank for India. We would be looking at a combination of products and body shapes for this market,” Eric Apode, senior vice-president, Stellantis, told ET Auto.

Prices of new vehicles far outpaced overall consumer inflation over the past year. In response, many buyers who were priced out of that market turned to used vehicles. Yet their demand proved so potent that used-vehicle prices soared even more than new ones did. The price of an average new vehicle jumped 6% between January of last year, before the coronavirus erupted in the United States, and December to a record $40,578, according to data from Edmunds.com. Yet that increase was nothing next to what happened in the used market. The average price of a used vehicle surged nearly 14% - roughly 10 times the rate of inflation - to over $23,000. It was among the fastest such increases in decades, said Ivan Drury, a senior manager of insights for Edmunds.com. The main reason for the exploding prices is a simple one of economics: Too few vehicles available for sale during the pandemic and too many buyers. The price hikes come at a terrible time for buyers, many of whom are struggling ... » Learn More about New or used? Either way, price hikes squeeze US auto buyers
WASHINGTON: The White House said Thursday administration officials are working to address a growing shortage of semiconductor chips that has slowed auto production around the world. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration is "currently identifying potential chokepoints in the supply chain and actively working alongside key stakeholders in industry and with our trading partners to do more now." The issue is one reason Biden plans to sign an executive order in the coming weeks to direct a comprehensive review of supply chain issues for critical goods. General Motors Co on Wednesday said the global semiconductor chip shortage could shave up to $2 billion from 2021 profit. On Tuesday, the largest U.S. automaker extended production cuts at three North American plants and said it would partially build and later finish assembling vehicles at two other factories due to the chip shortage. U.S. rival Ford Motor Co previously said it lost some ... » Learn More about White House working to address semiconductor shortage hitting auto production
Cracks in the Mahagathbandhan in Bihar is frittering away the ground gained in social justice and contributing to increasing polarisation in the state, says Mohammad Sajjad. IMAGE: Demonstrations after a spate of murders in Bihar in 2015. The state seems to be slipping towards bad governance and losing its middle space to retrogressive forces. Intra-coalition squabbling could be the most plausible factor behind it. Photograph: PTI Photo As news started leaking that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar might break away from Lalu Prasad Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal to form a government with the Bharatiya Janata Party once again -- or head for mid-term polls in alliance with the BJP -- one could notice the tremendous fear among the Muslims in the state. The news comes when a series of anti-Muslim lynching in the adjacent states of Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh as well as in Haryana and Rajasthan, all BJP-ruled, are taking place. It comes at a time when an NDTV ... » Learn More about Why are Bihar’s Muslims frightened?
(Note: The article was first published on May 31, 2017. All data and facts are according to the date of publishing. ) Fiat , for many in India, is still a name associated with the once-ubiquitous Premier Padmini, the unassuming car that Walchand Group’s Premier Automobiles manufactured under licence from the Italian automaker. Since the company started on its own here, the Unos, Siennas and Palios came and went without making much of a mark, and what the Puntos and Lineas sell a month now is what Maruti Suzuki does in a mere two hours. The company has clearly failed to make a mark in this market, despite bringing some of the most impressive cars at attractive prices. The company, now Italian-American following its merger with Chrysler, wants to change its fortunes in India. This time, it has a clear strategy: mass-market hasn’t worked; so it has been dumped and the focus is on niche products. While the volume may not be large there, to make returns on the huge investments it ... » Learn More about Fiat Cars may say goodbye: We bring a flashback
