Auto News for Sept. 22



Honda has released a picture of its refreshed 2015 CR-V, one of the more successful models in its lineup. It will go on sale Oct. 1 and Honda promises complete information on the updates Sept. 30. For now, that is all of any substance we know.

Ever wonder how a new car is built? Then you should check out the Chrysler 200 Factory Tour for a virtual tour of the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant – five million square feet of factory or the equivalent of 86 football fields.

The recalls continue at General Motors. This time it is 221,558 Chevy Impalas and Cadillac XTS models for a brake defect. GM said the brake pads might remain partially engaged when braking is not needed thus building up heat and possibly starting a fire. It knows of no such incidents. Cadillacs from model years 2013-2015 and Impalas from 2014-15 are involved in the recall.
