Take Five is a look at five new or upgraded vehicles that are destined for or have recently entered the Canadian market. Here is a sampling of vehicles from Ford, Audi, BMW and Subaru.
Audi Canada is recalling about 3,000 vehicles equipped with certain seats after determining a sensor designed to detect whether the passenger seat is occupied can malfunction.
Volkswagen Canada is recalling a combined 5,585 vehicles from the VW and luxury Audi brand because a problem with their brake systems could lead to crashes.
Audi is recalling about 1.2 million cars and SUVs worldwide — 47,704 of them in Canada — because the electric coolant pumps can overeat and possibly cause a fire.
An Ontario judge has approved a settlement worth up to $290.5 million with about 20,000 owners of 3.0-litre VW, Audi and Porsche diesel vehicles in Canada affected by Volkswagen AG's diesel emissions-cheating scandal.
Audi will begin integrating toll payment technology into its vehicles in the U.S. this year that will let drivers pay tolls without needing an additional device. While the technology works on some Canadian roads, it's not available there.
