News roundup: BMW and Citroen announce recalls and hot Hondas at Goodwood

  • Citroen recalls C3 and DS3
  • BMW announces recall for X5
  • Mercedes shows teaser shots for new AMG GT model

BMW
BMW has recalled 151 X5 SUVs due to a problem with their rear-door child locks. The affected cars are being recalled because the rear doors could be opened even when the safety locks are activated. The cars affected were built between October 2013 and March 2014. BMW will contact owners of affected cars.

Citroen
Some Citroen C3s and DS3s have also been recalled, with 3075 cars affected. The cars are being recalled to rectify an issue with the front suspension wishbone mounting bolts. The bolts are substandard and could fail, which would affect the car's steering. The cars were built between October and November 2013, and Citroen will contact the owners of the affected cars.

Honda
The Honda Civic Type R concept and the NSX concept will be the stars on the company's stand at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. The production versions of both cars will go on sale in 2015, and these two cars are expected to be the final concepts before the final models are revealed. Visitors to Honda's stand will also be able to race remote-controlled models of the two cars, and take part in an off-road experience on the company's range of off-road motorcycles.
