Tesla is recalling approximately 3,000 model-year 2019-2021 Model 3 and 2020-2021 Model Y vehicles due to a suspension issue. The front suspension lateral link fasteners may loosen, allowing the lateral link to separate from the sub-frame. A lateral link separation could shift wheel alignment, causing instability and increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on Dec. 24, 2021. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To remedy the issue, Tesla Service will tighten or replace the lateral link fasteners, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
