2015-2016 Tesla Model X: Recall Alert

2016 Tesla Model X

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 14,100 model-year 2015-16 Tesla Model X SUVs

The Problem: The aluminum bolts that attach the power steering gear assist motor to the gear housing may corrode and fracture, causing a reduction or complete loss of power steering assist and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Tesla Service Centers will replace the steering gear mounting bolts with coated steel bolts, and add a corrosion-preventive sealer to the steering gear motor housing and motor connection bolts. If the mounting bolts are found to be broken or break during removal and cannot be removed, a new steering gear will also be installed. All repairs will be done for free.

What Owners Should Do: Tesla has not yet provided an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 877-798-3752, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
