14:50 EDTGMJudge orders General Motors must hand over defect files, WSJ reports
A U.S. Judge has ordered General Motors to turn over internal files and documents regarding its ignition-switch flaw and how it handled the defect to plaintiff attorneys, The Wall Street Journal says. The attorneys are representing plaintiffs who have sued the auto manufacturer alleging economic loss, personal injury, and deaths related to the company's recall of older cars with the ignition-switch defect. While General Motors is protected from liabilities that occurred before its bankruptcy in 2009, the recent ruling paves the way for plaintiff attorneys to obtain records they could use in cases before and after General Motor's bankruptcy petition, The Wall Street Journal added.

12:42 EDTFFord recalls 2015 Lincoln MKCs due to windshield glass defect
Ford is recalling certain model year 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles manufactured August 20, 2013, to June 6. The affected vehicles may have visible air bubbles in the windshield glass. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 205, "Glazing Materials." Air bubbles in the windshield could impact the driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the windshields for air bubbles, replacing them as necessary, free of charge. The recall began in August. Reference Link

11:21 EDTTMToyota recalls 2008-2014 FJ Cruisers, Tacomas due to incorrect tire placard
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2008-2014 FJ Cruiser and Tacoma vehicles equipped with accessory wheels and tires installed by Toyota or dealers prior to the vehicle's first sale. The affected vehicles may list incorrect spare tire size and/or cold tire inflation information on the tire placard. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars." If the spare tire is inflated to the incorrect pressure provided on the placard, tire failure may occur while it is being driven on, increasing the risk of a crash. For the involved vehicles, overlay stickers to correct the tire placard will either be mailed to owners or provided to dealers for placement over the incorrect information on the placard. The recall is expected to begin in September. Reference Link

14:01 EDTTMMobileye sinks after report says Toyota likely to use competitor
Shares of Mobileye (MBLY) are falling after the Nikkei newspaper reported today that Toshiba (TOSBF) is going to make many system chips for automatic driver-assist systems, or ADAS. Toyota (TM) will likely incorporate the chips into vehicles it will release in fiscal year 2015, the newspaper added. Mobileye designs software and chips for camera-based advanced ADAS. WHAT'S NEW: Toshiba plans to begin mass producing the ADAS chips - which will analyze images to help cars respond correctly to traffic lights and avoid dangers on the road - in 2015, Nikkei reported. The chips will be placed in safety systems by another company, Denso, before they are shipped to Toyota, Nikkei noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On September 9, Citigroup raised its price target on Mobileye to $62 from $48, as the firm was more confident about the company's chances of landing Toyota as a client after attending the first day of the ITS World Congress. Although Toyota is one of the few large auto makers not utilizing Mobileye's technology, the Japanese giant does recognize Mobileye's distinct technological advantages and expects to obtain ADAS components from more suppliers over the medium term, according to the firm, which kept a Buy rating on Mobileye. However, Deutsche Bank expressed some caution on the stock earlier this week when it downgraded the shares on valuation concerns. But the firm said that it continued to be upbeat about the company's long-term prospects. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Mobileye slumped $2, or 4%, to $52. The shares debuted on August 12 at about $32.

Citigroup raised its price target for Mobileye (MBLY) shares to $62 saying it left day one of the ITS World Congress feeling better about its thesis regarding the company landing Toyota (TM) as a client. Citi says Toyota is one of few remaining large OEMs that has yet to enter production with Mobileye. It believes Toyota recognizes Mobileye’s distinct technological advantages and expects to source more ADAS suppliers over the medium-term. William Blair this morning said it believes Tesla (TSLA) and GM (GM) are using Mobileye for their automated highway driving assist technology while Morgan Stanley upped its price target for shares to $65. The stock is trading up 6% to $56.23 in pre-market trading.
