At high speeds, the air inlet between the bonnet and the radiator grill causes vibrations in the hood. This can result in stress fractures along the bonnet latch striker and its separation from the bonnet, causing the bonnet to open. This obstructs the drivers’ view, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Tesla Model 3 vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 2017 and 2021.
