Holden has recalled its CG Captiva 5 and CG Captiva 7 SUV models, built between May 2014 and September of this year.

While there is no apparent problem with the vehicle itself, the factory-supplied jack has come into focus for wearing incorrect labelling.

Under the rules for Australian and New Zealand standards, a jack designed to be used with a specific vehicle - in this case, the Holden Captiva - must not wear a ‘safe working load’ sticker.

Authorities fear Captiva owners may be lured into a false sense of security by the sticker, and may attempt to use the jack with a vehicle for which it is not suitable.

Volkswagen is recalling its 2016 Scirocco R, due to a potential problem with the speedometer.

The carmaker says the speedo may not indicate the true velocity while travelling at speeds between 100 and 180km/h (the latter in the Northern Territory, we’ll assume).

While speedos often ‘overstate’ a vehicle’s speed in an attempt to keep owners on the legal side of the speed limit, the Scirocco’s gauge may be understating the true speed to the driver.

Volkswagen says this may pose a hazard to the vehicle’s occupants and other road users, as drivers may unintentionally exceed the speed limit by small increments.

A specific list of Sciroccos is the target of the recall.

Holden and Volkswagen will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
