Ferrari feels the heat after cars ignite
Fires have been afflicting that most fiery of brands, Ferrari. In the first total recall in its history, the company is calling in all 1,248 Ferrari 458 Italia models.
Only a few have caught fire after adhesives in the wheelarches have made contact with the exhaust pipe. The company is making free modifications.
Kia also has heat issues with some versions of its Soul and Sorento.
It says a potential fault has been identified in a small section of the door wiring loom that controls the “mood” lighting in Soul and Sorento models. The fix should take no more than an hour. It says 73 Soul models and 476 Sorento KX-3 vehicles are involved in Britain.
Meanwhile, in an industry survey by the Retail Motor Industry Federation, Kia franchises are rated equal with Audi and Land Rover for value and best for return on investment.
