Here is some boring National Highway Traffic Safety Administration updates. The agency has opened two new auto safety investigations into the Subaru Impreza and Kia Sorento.

The NHTSA said it is investigating 84,000 2002-2002 Subaru Impreza vehicles after receiving complaints alleging failure of a control arm because of excessive corrosion. The failures reportedly occur at speeds of 50 mph or faster.

NHTSA said it is also investigating 50,000 2011 Kia Sorento SUVs after receiving four complaints alleging a loss of power because of sudden failure of a transmission intermediate driveshaft. Another five complaints allege a loss of power because of transmission failure that could be related to a driveshaft failure.
