Problem description:

The fastening elements that secure the brake calipers to the stub axles may not have been tightened to the correct torque.

As a result, the movement of the wheels can be restricted and subsequently the tyres may lose pressure, increasing the risk of an accident.

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.
