San Francisco: Electric vehicle maker Tesla is recalling 2,791 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles because their front suspension lateral link fasteners may become loose, potentially shifting wheel alignment and increasing the risk of a crash.
According to a report by Ingadget, the affected vehicles are the 2019, 2020 and 2021 versions of the Model 3 and 2020, and the 2021 versions of the Model Y.
Tesla has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the recall and plans to mail the notification letter to affected owners on December 24.
The company will replace the fasteners free of charge. The number for this recall is SP-21-31-003.
The report says it’s far from being the first Tesla to miss on the books, and in the grand scheme of things, it’s a minor one.
Tesla has issued a few recalls this year alone, one affecting 135,000 US vehicles in February and another 6,000 US vehicles in June.
German regulators issued an additional recall of 12,300 Model X EVs in February of this year, citing trim-adhesive concerns.
