Mercedes-Benz is offering an updated G Class SUV for the 2013 model year, which will once again offer both a regular model and high-performance AMG variant. Updated with new drivetrains and safety features for the 2013 model year, the G Class now will be in production through at least 2015, Mercedes-Benz confirms, and we could even see it still after that.

Chrysler has issued a recall on its 2010 Jeep Wrangler model due to a potential fire hazard. The recall only affects those 2010 models equipped with an automatic transmission, of which there are said to be some 67,872 examples in the country.

According to a new survey, Americans are ready to adopt fuel-saving engine stop-start technology. Already popular in Europe, the technology is now filtering across to more models sold in the U.S. and may become a standard feature on most models in the near future.

All this and more in today's car news, right here on The Car Connection.

  1. Jeep Wranglers have been catching on fire for years, and Chrysler has been sweeping it under their giant corporate rug for years. The 07 Wranglers were recalled in 09 for a fire risk due to the transmission, Chryslers answer to the re call was to install a warning light that is supposed to warn the driver of a fire. The problem with this is they did not correct the cause of the fires, just installed a warning light, and the warning lights don't work. I bought my 07 Wrangler in 2010, it was recalled and the warning light was installed, I knew nothing about the risk of fire, or the warning light that was installed. In February my Wrangler caught on fire in my drive way, exploded and caught my house on fire, no warning lights went off. The in
