Tesla has now issued a recall on electric vehicles, recalling thousands of its Model Y and Model 3 vehicles. The vehicles are recalled due to a suspension issue. The recall covers 2,791 2020 through 2021 Model Y and 2019 through 2021 Model 3 vehicles.
In Tesla NHTSA filing, the reason for the recall is a front suspension lateral link with fasteners that can loosen. If the fasteners come loose, the lateral link could separate from the vehicle’s subframe, leading to an accident. Since the issue is with loose fasteners, Tesla has already devised a solution to the problem.
The recall number with the NHTSA is SB-21-31-003. Since the letters won’t go out for nearly two months, Tesla is emailing owners. Another recall is due to the airbag issue that only affects a very limited number of 2020-2021 Model 3 vehicles that were sold.
