Electric-vehicle startup Rivian is recalling more than 12,200 of its vehicles, the majority of the vehicles it’s produced, over a loose steering knuckle retention fastener that may not have been properly tightened upon installation.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2022 R1S SUVs, R1T pickup trucks and EDV delivery vans manufactured specifically for Amazon. The issue is with the fastener connecting the front upper control arm and steering knuckle. The loose fastener could separate, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle and increasing risk of a crash.
To resolve the issue, Rivian will tighten the steering knuckle fastener, as necessary, for free. The automaker will begin notifying owners Nov. 24; those with further questions can contact Rivian at 888-748-4261 (its number for this recall is FSAM 997), 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.
