1995-1998 Porsche 911: The 993 Generation

Nissan recalls over 3.5M cars over faulty airbag sensors

Nissan announced a new recall yesterday affecting 3.53 million of its cars, most of which are in the US, over concerns the passenger-side airbag may not deploy. The carmaker said the problem lies within the Occupant Classification System, or the sensor that detects if someone is sitting in the front passenger seat.

Audi A6, A7 get a fresh new look, inside and out

Audi A6, A7 get a fresh new look, inside and out

Why change a winning formula? That is perhaps the reasoning behind Audi's decision to keep its Audi A6 and Audi A7 sedans mostly intact. Mostly. Acknowledging that it still needs to be attractive to buyers tempted to look at competitors' shiny new offerings, Audi has given the A6 and A7 a slightly makeover, both externally and internally, that, especially for the A6 and A6 Avant, give the cars a bolder, sharper visage. Best of all, Audi has kept the best things about the A6 and A7, including the same starting price.
