Tesla brought back its referral program less than 2 months after killing it off. The awards have changed, however. It used to be that referring a lot of buyers to Tesla would get your picture launched into space, months of free supercharging, and a drive in the Tesla Semi.

The new awards program isn’t as extensive, but it can still get you a new Tesla, specifically a Model Y. You could also win a Tesla Roadster.

An investigation into possible carbon monoxide poisoning among Ford Explorer owners was opened last week after reports surfaced of drivers and passengers feeling nauseous.

Over 3,000 complaints were reported concerning Ford Explorer models from 2010 to 2018. The NHTSA has apparently been investigating the situation since 2016.
