Tesla Recalls Nearly 6,000 Model 3 and Y Vehicles

“Tesla will recall nearly 6,000 U.S. vehicles because brake caliper bolts could be loose, potentially causing a loss of tire pressure. According to a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration made public on Wednesday, Tesla is recalling certain 2019-2021 Model 3 vehicles and 2020-2021 Model Y vehicles. Tesla’s filing with the NHTSA said it had no reports of crashes or injuries related to the issue and that the company will inspect and tighten, or replace, the caliper bolts as necessary. The recall is not the first for Tesla this year. The electric vehicle maker in February recalled 135,000 Model S luxury sedans and Model X sport-utility vehicles because of touch-screen failures. In addition, German motor authorities in February asked Tesla to recall around 12,300 Model X cars due to what it described as ‘limited functionality’ of the adhesive on a ‘trim strip.'” (06/02/21)
