Tesla recall of 123,000 cars

According to the Telegraph, Tesla has announced their largest ever recall for their Model S cars built before April 2016. Tesla has said that a power-steering component needs to be retrofitted.

The recall will affect around 123,00 vehicles globally. Tesla has reassured customers that the recall is not a response to any accident or injuries and will only affect the Model S sedan.

An email was sent to impacted customers which stated the reason for the recall as ‘excessive corrosion in the power steering bolts, though only in very cold climates, particularly those that frequently use calcium or magnesium road salts.’

‘Nonetheless, Tesla plans to replace all early Model S power steering bolts in all climates worldwide to account for the possibility that the vehicle may later be used in a highly corrosive environment,’ said Tesla spokesperson.
