Tesla Recalls Us Vehicles Over The Loss Of Power Steering Assist!
According to a Nov. 1 petition with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration made public on Tuesday, Tesla is voluntarily recalling 40,168 2017–2021 Model S and Model X vehicles that may experience a loss of power steering assist.
A software update that is distributed wirelessly to the vehicles is necessary for the recall. Some vehicles experienced power steering loss after a firmware update in October when navigating potholes and uneven terrain. You may also check Tesla.com bought for $11 Million reveals Elon Musk
According to the press statement, the flaw affects about 1% of the recalled cars. As stated by the administration, “Loss or reduced power steering help does not compromise steering control, but may necessitate increased steering effort from the driver, particularly at low speeds.”
According to the automaker, as of Nov. 1, 97% of the recalled vehicles had a new update loaded that fixes the problem, so the owners of such vehicles don’t need to take any additional action.
