Tesla Recalls 70,000 Model S Sedans

Tesla Autopilot

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V204000

Manufacturer: Tesla, Inc.

Components: STEERING

Potential Number of Units Affected: 70,421


Tesla is recalling approximately 70,400 model-year 2012-16 Tesla Model S sedans equipped with Bosch steering racks.

The aluminum bolts that attach the power-steering gear assist motor to the gear housing may corrode and fracture, causing a reduction or loss of power steering assist and a higher steering effort, especially at lower speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.


Dealers will replace the steering gear mounting bolts and add a corrosion-preventative sealer for free.


Tesla began notifying owners in March. Owners can call the automaker at 877-798-3752, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
