On the safety front, front and side airbags, dynamic stability control, ABS, electronic braking assist and pedestrian contact sensors are features standard on a new Jaguar F-Type Convertible. Does added sporting paraphernalia leave us yearning after Mazda's limited run 3 Sport Black? What is it?Mazda appears to have made a bold sporting statement with its new special edition 3 Sport Black, fixing its sights directly on hot hatch royalty. It's based on a standard Sport 3, but is fitted with a front splitter, deep side skirts, a rear diffuser and a big rear spoiler, all of which are finished in gloss black - hence the name. The Sport Black costs from ?20,995 and is available in Snowflake White Pearlescent or Soul Red Metallic paint, for no additional cost.
The 3 feels happy to be thrown into corners, with no discernable understeer until it is pushed hard. Sporting credentials are aided by a wonderfully judged steering set-up. The front sports seats have good side bolster support, but are overly firm on the backrest around the shoulder blades. In the rear, access is tight and leg room is limited for adults. At the back, the boot has quite a lip to get over before you get to the flat and usable boot space, although its 364-litre capacity is short of the best in the class.
Rather than go down the route of downsizing and turbocharging, Mazda developed an under stressed larger engine that can deliver strong real world economy, reliability and performance. The 488's incredible engine and handling and open-top experience make for something very special indeed. The Isuzu D-Max is starting to show its age; after a drive in the range-topping Blade version, is it still competitive? Last year, I crossed the United States from Coast to Coast — New York to LA — in a Ram 1500 Tradesman. I’ll hop in a Ram 2500 Tradesman 4×4 in Seattle eventually, but for now, as the area I’ll travel through before Seattle has only an intermittent road network, it will be a mix of planes, rental cars and ferries.

Last week, we learned General Motors was recalling the majority of their Hummer H3 and H3T models due to a fire risk from a melting blower motor resistor and harness. A few days ago, Jalopnik’s Michael Ballaban pointed out the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon were also at risk due to similar components.
Searching through the NHTSA complaints database and user forums yielded many examples of melted and burnt blower motor resistors and harnesses for the GM roadster twins. Jalopnik has an interesting story today about how General Motors negotiated its way into recalling 200,000 Hummers only after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration threatened to launch a formal investigation.
Last week, Hummer recalled nearly 200,000 SUVs due to an increased fire risk because of a faulty HVAC harness that could melt and catch fire. GM knew about the problem in 2008, Jalopnik writes, and did nothing until issuing a recall this July. General Motors is recalling nearly 200,000 Hummer H3 and H3T models due to an increased fire risk, Autoblog is reporting. According to the automaker, the car’s HVAC system can overheat and melt surrounding plastic, which could increase the chance for a fire in the car.
We go down memory lane this morning and look at some of the great cars British Leyland didn’t build.
It doesn't have Citroen C6 levels of road-ironing comfort, but it doesn’t have the hardcore ride you’d expect given its looks.
The sports seats are now clad in half suede and leather, with the doors getting the same treatment.
It's a very capable and likeable car, while in Sport spec it has uprated driving dynamics that make it more fun to drive.
It costs about the same money as the 3 Sport Black, but is quicker, more spacious, even better to drive and more economical.

Compare this engine to Ford's 1.0 ecoboost 125ps and while on paper they appear reasonably similar in power and torque, I found the Mazda significantly more responsive and powerful.
What does this 567bhp range-topping brute have to offer, seeing as it costs more than ?100,000? We also learned GM didn’t issue the recall until they were threatened by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
These trucks may not be the last of the affected models as the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky also shared many HVAC components with the Hummer H3. GM says the fire has burned 42 cars and injured three people so far, but no crashes or fatalities have been reported. Some larger bumps are felt, but overall, the suspension set-up is mmpressive, combining excellent handling with good levels of comfort. This year we embark on another crossing, this time from North to South, albeit starting a little further North than you might expect. It needs to be revved hard to get the best from it, as maximum power comes in at 6,000rpm, but it has a linear power delivery. You’ll find yourself downshifting to keep in its power band, which is fine because the six-speed manual gearbox is a delight. However, despite a neatly designed instrument binnacle, which is reminiscent of an RAF wings badge, and soft-touch plastics, the interior is slightly drab. The fascia is dominated by Mazda's brilliant 7.0in colour touchscreen and rotary dial-controlled infotainment system.
