What’s the Problem?
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.
