Tesla has just made the most important reminder of its history while 123,000 Model S built before April 2016 will have to return to the workshop to undergo a small repair. The initiative is that of the company.
The problem relates to some power steering system bolts that are prone to rust significantly, which can lead to their uselessness. The consequence is that the steering wheel becomes more difficult to maneuver at low speed and during parking operations.
Not surprisingly, the problem would be mostly concentrated in regions where snow is present and where exposure to calcium is noticed.
This is important for Canadian model owners. Nevertheless, the company did not just go for a geographical reminder and took care to explain that all Model S would be recalled so that the problem is rectified.
The statement issued by Tesla states that the problem is not manifested at high speed, where the effort required to move the steering wheel is minimal. No incidents or injuries were identified in connection with this case.
To date, the company’s most important recall involved 90,000 Model S in 2015 due to a seat belt defect.
