Australians will cast their ballots in the nation's general election in just over a week, deciding between a country led by Malcolm Turnbull, or one where Labour's Bill Shorten becomes Prime Minister.

Ford Australia is facing a potential billion‐dollar liability in a new class action seeking refunds on 70,000 allegedly dodgy cars.

Ford is accused of misleading or deceptive conduct in selling 22 different models of Fiesta, Focus and EcoSport vehicles between 2011 and this year.

Users report sudden power loss, shuddering, uncontrolled movement, sudden gear changes and gear skipping.
