Tesla Is Recalling 123,000 Model S Vehicles

 Friday, March 30, 2018


Tesla (TSLA) on Thursday recalled about 123,000 Model S sedans, asking customers with cars built before April of 2016 to have their power steering bolts replaced. A Tesla spokesperson said the company has observed "excessive corrosion" of the part in some cold climates where a certain type of road salt is used. No injuries or accidents have been reported in connection with the issue, the spokesperson said. A Tesla spokesperson said that if the bolts fail, the driver should still be able to control the vehicle. The issue can make the car more difficult to steer at low speeds and to parallel park, and it should "not materially affect control at high speed."
