  • Minicars generally fared poorly in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s newest and toughest trial. Of the 11 minicars tested, none achieved the institute’s highest rating of Good. Only one – the Chevrolet Spark – achieved the next highest rating of Acceptable. The others received ratings of either Marginal or Poor, the lowest rating. The two worst-performing vehicles were the Honda Fit and the Fiat 500, although a completely redesigned Fit goes on sale this spring. Russ Radar, a spokesman for the institute recommends “…If safety is a priority, it’s better to move up even one class size.”

  • General Motors said Friday that they will recall 370,000 full sized pickups due to fire risks posed by a software bug that may cause the engine to idle incorrectly, overheating elements of the exhaust system. GM confirms that there have been at least 8 fires cause by the software problem, which sometimes causes a "check engine light" and "engine power reduced" warning lights to illuminate. GM said Friday it will recall 2014 Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras to reprogram software that could lead to overheating of exhaust components, potentially causing engine compartment fires. The 2014 Silverado is one of three finalists for North American Truck of the Year, which will be awarded Monday at the North American International Auto Show.
