The information released by NHTSA also shows that some modelx models are equipped with decorative decals at the front of the roof behind the windshield and in the center of the roof respectively. With the passage of time, the adhesion may be weakened, leading to the separation of the decal and the vehicle. If the decal is separated from the vehicle during driving, it may cause road hazards to the drivers behind and increase their risk of injury or collision.
Tesla said in the relevant documents submitted to NHTSA that the company had been informed of the incident in September on a 2016 model x, and although there was no accident or injury, the situation could indeed pose a danger to other vehicles behind.
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. In October, Tesla announced the recall of 30000 imported models and modelx in the Chinese market due to potential safety hazards in the front and rear suspension links. According to the information of the State Administration of market supervision and administration at that time, when these vehicles are subjected to large external impact, the ball stud on the front suspension link or the rear suspension link will produce an initial crack. When the vehicle is used continuously, the crack may extend and cause the ball stud to fracture. In extreme cases, the ball head cone seat may come out of the steering knuckle, which will affect the vehicle handling, increase the risk of accidents, and have potential safety hazards.
