Fiat-Chrysler has issued a recall for 121,000 Dodge Darts from the 2013-14 model years, citing brake issues. FCA says some vehicles may need their vacuum tubing replaced due to oil migration issues that could cause the driver to have trouble stopping or slowing.

General Motors is making improvements to its Bowling Green, Kentucky, assembly plant to accommodate the runaway success of the new Corvette Z06. GM plans to invest $44 million into the project, resulting in the addition of 36 news jobs.

Gear

With winter just days away and slush not far behind, it is time to purchase some solid floor liners for your car or truck. Rather than picking models that only kinda-sorta of fit, go with Weathertech. Boom. Perfect fit.

Lifestyle

A clean haircut and shave is an essential part of any man’s presentation, so when it comes to finding the right barber, don’t be lazy. If you live in the NYC area, treat yourself at Freeman’s Sporting Club to a mighty fine cut and hot shave.
