AOL - Hyundai is recalling its popular Sonata midsize sedan to fix problems with the gear shift levers. The recall covers 883,000 cars from the 2011 through 2014 model years. The Korean automaker says the automatic transmission shift cable can separate from the shift lever. If that happens, the lever may not show the correct gear, increasing the risk of a crash. Also, if the driver stops the car and puts the transmission in "park," the car may still be in gear and could roll away, injuring drivers, passengers or bystanders, Hyundai said in documents posted Wednesday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

TorrentFreak - The Alliance of Artists and Recording Companies has launched a class action lawsuit against Ford and General Motors over the CD-ripping capability of their cars. The music industry group claims that the car companies violate federal law and demand millions of dollars in damages. A quarter century ago the music industry was confronted with a new threat — cassette tape recorders. These devices were able to make “near perfect” copies of any audio recording and the RIAA and others feared this would be the end of the recorded music industry.

The Tampa Tribune - Following behind a small phalanx of Audis traveling down an otherwise empty stretch of the Selmon Expressway’s elevated lanes, Kaushik Raghu takes his hands off the steering wheel of the gray 2012 Audi A7 with a vanity license plate reading “SELF1E.” Yet the sleek German sedan continues rolling along, staying in the lane and keeping pace with the cars ahead of it. Raghu’s short hands-free journey on a scorching Sunday afternoon is the prequel to a much more formal event on Monday, during which Audi engineers will show off their piloted driving technology to Gov. Rick Scott and State Sen. Jeff Brandes, a driverless car proponent.

KSL - Richard Jensen was already in bed for the evening Monday when he was awakened by a series of odd noises. "First thing I heard, or I think I heard because I was asleep, was a racing engine. And then I heard a thud. And then I heard an explosion," he said. And then Jensen, 66, discovered that a sport utility vehicle had crashed through the wall and was sitting in his living room — with the driver still inside. "She was screaming and worried she hurt somebody. And I’m like, ’Little late for that.’ And I was concerned she was hurt so I called 911," Jensen said. Jensen’s home suffered heavy damage after the allegedly drunken woman went airborne and ended up inside the house in a spectacular crash.

Abbott Laboratories.

USA Today - A 93-year-old water main broke above the campus of the University of California-Los Angeles, sending a torrent raging through parking structures and athletic facilities. No injuries were immediately reported from the flooding at UCLA, and many students used the occasion to go wading down steps that became waterfalls. Some broke out floats and were pulled through the accumulated water. Some of the water reportedly may have damaged Pauley Pavilion, one of UCLA’s athletic facilities, but many of the campus’ other most famous buildings, such as Royce Hall and Powell Library, are perched well above the flooding.
