13:25 EDTVLKAYU.S. appeals court upholds dismissal of Porsche short squeeze suit, Reuters says
Porsche (POAHY) has convinced a U.S. federal appeals court to uphold the dismissal of a lawsuit that alleged the luxury car manufacturer of fraudulently controlling the market in Volkswagen (VLKAY) shares after they quietly amassed a large position in Volkswagen and created a "massive short squeeze" in October 2008, Reuters reported. The U.S. appeals court said Porsche could not be held responsible under U.S. securities fraud laws because the alleged wrongful conduct, which was brought on by more than 30 hedge funds who held short positions in shares of Volkswagen at the time, took place outside of the U.S., Reuters added.

06:28 EDTFFord issues recall due to potentially faulty halfshaft
Ford is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles manufactured September 2, 2010, to November 30, 2013; 2013-2014 Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS vehicles manufactured August 25, 2011, to November 30, 2013; and 2013-2014 Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT vehicles manufactured September 12, 2011, to November 30, 2013. In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention circlip may not have been properly installed, and as a result, the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving and without prior warning. If the halfshaft and linkshaft become disengaged while driving, power will no longer be transmitted to the wheels, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, if the parking brake is not applied before exiting the vehicle, the vehicle may roll away despite the transmission being placed in "park'," increasing the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders. Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by August 29. Reference Link

10:52 EDTVLKAYVolkswagen recalls 2009 Routans due to ignition defect
The company said that it is recalling 2009 Routan vehicles due to an ignition defect. The key fob should be removed from the key ring. Road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the ignition key inadvertently moves into the "off" or "accessory" position, the engine will turn off, which will then depower various key safety systems including but not limited to air bags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will modify the ignition switch, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August. Reference Link
