My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA RECALL #13 - Porsche is recalling it's hypercar the 918 Hybrid for possible wrong screws used when securing mounts.
Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain model year 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid Electric vehicles manufactured February 2, 2015 through July 1, 2015. In the affected vehicles, incorrect screws might have been used when re-installing and/or re-securing the seat belt mount or the seat belt reel during vehicle service.
In the event of a crash, the incorrect bolts may not keep the seat belts properly anchored to the car, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupants.
Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, and as necessary, replace the seat belt mount and seat belt reel attaching bolts, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche's number for this recall is AG04.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
