Tesla Recalls 15,000 Model Xs to Fix Power Steeri
If you drive a Model X, you might not need to worry about the problem. It only affects some examples made during the 2016 model year; there are 14,193 potentially defective cars registered in the United States, and 843 in Canada. Vehicles made after October 2016 aren 8217;t part of the recall. If you 8217;re wondering when yours was built, look for a sticker with identification information in the doorjamb and find the four-digit date on it (e.g., 10/16).
The fix is relatively simple. Technicians will replace the mounting bolts and swap out the steering gear if they notice it has sustained damage. Parts and labor will be free, which is par for the course when it comes to recalls. Tesla wrote that it will contact owners of affected cars individually to schedule a service appointment as soon as replacement parts are available in their region, but it didn 8217;t reveal when or where the campaign will begin. In the meantime, owners can continue to drive their car, because they won 8217;t lose the ability to steer even if the bolts snap.标签：
