Tesla defective suspension

CHINA – The LATimes.com writes that Tesla owners complained about dangerous vehicle flaws in the manufacturer’s Model S and Model X. Tesla Model S Recall Tesla Model X Recall

The issue with the vehicles appears to be a problem with the suspension systems. Reports indicate the drivers have been complaining about these problems for several years, dating back to about 2015. This week, China moved to issue a recall of 30,000 Tesla vehicles built between 2013 and 2017. The Tesla vehicles, including Model S and Model X vehicles, were manufactured at the company’s California plant. The company installed the same suspension systems in Tesla vehicles that were sold in the United States and in Europe. In total, Tesla sold 250,000 of the affected vehicles throughout the world.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration responded, stating that the administration is aware of the allegations of suspension issues and the recall in China. However, the NHTSA claims that they have not received a significant number of complaints regarding Tesla suspension flaws in the United States. Tesla is reportedly in contact with the NHTSA regarding the situation, and the NHTSA states that they will take action to protect drivers if they determine that these vehicles present unreasonable risks. Tesla did not respond to inquiries regarding the recall. In 2019, Tesla ceased to maintain a media relations department and is no longer providing responses to media inquiries.

According to a recent letter, Tesla’s attorney sent to the NHTSA, Tesla does not believe that the vehicles present any safety issues and states that the problem is the result of driver errors. Based on Tesla’s claims, the issues with the vehicles are caused by curb impacts and severe pothole strikes. The company also claims that they are not aware of any collisions resulting from the issues. Tesla has previously dealt with problems regarding their suspension systems. In 2016, reports indicated that Tesla offered to repair suspension issues for vehicle owners outside of warranty coverage as long as those vehicle owners signed confidentiality agreements and agreed not to file lawsuits against Tesla. Tesla later dropped the non-disclosure requirement.
