BREAKING: At least eight car makers in Australia have Takata airbags in their cars and have NOT issued a recall, even though these cars have been recalled overseas: https://goo.gl/tpvvch

Around 877,000 vehicles sold in Australia by Ford Australia, Audi Australia, Jaguar, Volkswagen, GM Holden, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Tesla are affected.

CHOICE has also welcomed the Minister’s plan to initiate a mandatory recall, which proposes car companies offer loan cars, a tow and even refunds, in some cases.

Do you have a car from one of these manufacturers?

Do you own a lemon caravan?

A CHOICE investigation has found some caravan owners are being left with a sour taste when it comes to exercising their consumer rights: https://goo.gl/c5UA3H

Unfortunately, these owners are tens-of-thousands of dollars out of pocket because of poor consumer protections.
