AutoComplete: Ford does a recall doubletake with Takata and the EcoSport
Here's what's making news on Roadshow.
Ford is adding an additional million vehicles to its Takata Airbag recall list which, beyond all reason, is still going on.
On top of that, Ford's little Ecosport Crossover is getting a recall of its very own.
The Ecosport's front seat backs may have gotten welded insufficiently during production and could fail in the event of a crash, which would like You know, suck.
A whopping 87 VINs are part of that recall, but thankfully it's a simple fix.
Nissan is bringing some serious science fiction stuff to CES this year with its invisible-to-visible concept.
Basically, it uses vast quantities of cloud data to build something it calls the metaverse, which can be used to create digital driving coaches and much, much more.
It's all pretty wild stuff and we're going to be sure to check out Nissan's augmented reality demo of the concept next week.
So keep an eye on Road Show for our take on it.
It seems like Infiniti releases more concepts than they do actual cars these days, but usually they're interesting, so we're not complaining.
The latest such concept to come from Nissan's fancy cousin is the QX Inspiration.
It looks like the love child of a QX 50 and the star car from the 1994 to 1999 TV series, Viper.
So we're really not mad at it.
Infinity will be giving us our first real look at the car in Detroit in a couple weeks.
So look forward to that too.
