Major Tesla Recall in China Over Defective Suspensions
According to CNBC News, approximately 48,442 Tesla vehicles, manufactured in America, have been recalled due to hazardous front and rear suspensions.
About the Tesla Model S and X China Recall
The vehicles, which were sold to consumers in China, were recalled by the China State Administration for Market Regulation. The Administration is demanding that Tesla repair the faulty suspension errors in affected cars by replacing the rear and upper linkages of the suspensions for free.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is closely monitoring the situation to deem whether or not American consumers will be issued the same recall. Currently, there are not enough reports indicating instances of faulty suspensions in U.S. Tesla vehicles. Nevertheless, the NHTSA is prepared to work with China to administer safe vehicles to the public.
Vehicles Affected by the Tesla Recall
- 29,193 imported Model Ss and Model Xs (manufactured through Sept. 17, 2013 and Aug. 16, 2017)
- 19,249 imported Model Ss (manufactured through Sept. 17, 2013 and Oct. 15, 2018)
What to Do When Your Defective Vehicle Resulted in Injury
Drivers have enough to worry about while traversing the roadways on a daily basis. When a person gets behind the wheel of a car, there is a reasonable expectation that the car is going to perform in a matter that would not put the operator’s life in jeopardy. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of vehicle recalls each year due to manufacturer defects, from the tires to the ignition switches, that can cause catastrophic injuries and in some cases death.
