Tesla Model 3 (2017 – 2021)

Published on 15. 04. 2022

Problem description:

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.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Tesla dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
