Ford Is Recalling Explorer Cars
Ford Motor Company is recalling 238,364 Explorer model crossovers manufactured between 2020 and 2022 due to the potential failure of a rear axle fastener. Such a fault has the potential to disconnect the driveshaft. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data, this can result in power loss while driving or not having the handbrake engaged while parked. As of now, Ford has received reports of nearly 400 bolt failure incidents, with no recorded accidents resulting from this issue.

New Tesla Model 3 Prices Have Been Set
In 2023, Tesla, the American automaker, reduced the price of its Model 3 electric car to $38,990. However, this apparent act of generosity may have significant financial implications for the company. Reports from international media suggest that these reduced prices could lead to annual losses of up to $1.2 billion for the brand.
Furthermore, the United States offers tax incentives for purchasing electric vehicles. In the case of Tesla, this means an additional reduction of $7,500 off the car’s price. Consequently, the Model 3 costs similarly to the budget-friendly Toyota Corolla, as reported by Bloomberg.
It’s worth noting that the initial price of the Model 3 remains higher than that of the Corolla, even with these incentives applied. However, when factoring in the lower operating costs associated with electric cars, the long-term investments become comparable. By the way, Tesla has also lowered prices on other models, such as the Model Y, which is now $3,700 more affordable.
