As time goes on, the adhesion of the trim panel may weaken, and in extreme cases it may fall off the vehicle - once it falls off, it will increase the risk of collision or injury of rear vehicles, especially motorcycles There are potential safety hazards.

Another 401 model y vehicles were recalled because the bolts of related parts were not tightened. The components here refer to the front upper control arm and steering knuckle of the relevant vehicle model, which are connected together by bolts, but these bolts may not be properly tightened. Due to insufficient tightening, NHTSA indicated that the upper control arm may separate from the knuckle. Tesla also said it had recently found that the upper control arm of three vehicles was separated from the steering knuckle.

It is worth mentioning that Teslas vehicles may be recalled in the near future. NHTSA said it had investigated 114761 Tesla vehicles about the safety of the front suspension after receiving 43 complaints about the failure of the front link of the left or right front suspension.
