Recalls for 2016 Tesla Model S 4dr Sdn AWD P90D
2016 TESLA MODEL S
NHTSA Campaign ID: 17V260000
Component: PARKING BRAKE
Manufacturer: Tesla Motors, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 07/12/2012 - 11/17/2016
Potential Units Affected: 31709
Defect Description:
Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain 2016 Model S and Model X vehicles. The electric parking brake calipers have an internal gear that may be improperly manufactured, possibly resulting in the gear fracturing during parking brake application or release.
Consequence:
If the gear breaks during parking brake release, the vehicle will not be able to be moved. If the gear breaks during parking brake application, the parking brake may not adequately hold the vehicle, potentially resulting in the vehicle rolling, increasing the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
Tesla will notify owners, and service centers will replace the electric parking brake calipers, free of charge. A remedy is currently unavailable. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed June 8, 2017. Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla's number for this recall is SB-17-33-002.
2016 TESLA MODEL S
NHTSA Campaign ID: 18V204000
Component: STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM
Manufacturer: Tesla, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 05/31/2012 - 04/09/2016
Potential Units Affected: 70421
Defect Description:
Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain 2012-2016 Tesla Model S vehicles 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 complete loss of power steering assist.
Consequence:
Loss of power steering assist would require a higher steering effort, especially at lower speeds, which may increase the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
