NHTSA started investigation on Tesla Model S and X
115,000 cars are in question
The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) started an investigation into Tesla cars due to safety concerns with the front suspension of the vehicles. About 115,000 cars are in question.
These are Model S cars from the years 2015 to 2017 and the Model X from 2016 and 2017. The NHTSA received 43 complaints about problems with the suspension of the cars. A defect can cause suspension arms to break.
According to the NHTSA, Tesla had said in a service message in 2017 that on some cars the supports may not meet their requirements, but that in the event of a defect, the driver still has control over the car.
Earlier this month, another lawsuit was filed in California against Tesla over suspension issues with the Model X and Model S.
