Update: Tesla Model X Recalled for Trim Separation Defect
Tesla is recalling 2016 Model X vehicles which were sold with a front and spine cosmetic roof trim that may have been adhered to the car without first using primer. This could cause one or both pieces of trim to separate from the vehicle while moving. “Trim that separates from the vehicle during use can cause a road hazard and increase the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said. This recall began in December 2020.
Tesla Model X Power Steering Recall
Tesla Inc. is recalling certain Model X vehicles for a potential defect that could cause a loss of power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash and severe injuries. This recall affects 2015-2016 Tesla Model X vehicles, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The aluminum bolts that attach the power steering gear assist motor to the gear housing on affected Teslas may corrode and fracture causing a reduction or complete loss of power steering assist, NHTSA said. Loss of power steering assist would require a higher steering effort, especially at lower speeds, which may increase the risk of a crash.
Tesla is notifying owners and dealers will fix the problem, free of charge. This recall began on April 3, 2020.
