  • In order to fix a problem that could cause the side link to separate from the subframe in the recalled 2018 and 2019 vehicles, Tesla will tighten or replace the side link stabilizers.

  • According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, lateral disconnecting the linkage might change how the wheels are aligned, which can lead to instability and raise the likelihood of a collision.

  • For its side, Tesla stated that while there have been no reports of accidents or injuries, there have been 25 warranty claims and two field reports since January 2019 that are connected to or may be connected to the recall.

  • The 2021 recall for the same problem, which included almost 2,800 Model 3s from the 2019 to 2021 model years and 2020 to 2021 Tesla Model Y vehicles, was expanded to include the new vehicle callback.

  • The recall occurred after Tesla said it had escalated 39 repairs to service where one or both of the front suspension's side link stabilizers were found loose or missing.
