Tesla Automotive, the innovative producer of advanced technology electric cars, recently announced a safety recall of approximately 120,000 Model S and Model X vehicles equipped with potentially faulty left-hand doors. The issue is with the left-hand door’s internal bracing system, which could potentially degrade in a crash and cause the door to open unexpectedly. In extreme cases, the door may even open suddenly during standard driving.
Tesla thanked customers in a statement released regarding the recall: “At Tesla, safety is our top priority. We are committed to ensuring our vehicles meet or exceed the highest safety standards.” The company announced that all affected vehicles will be inspected and repaired free of charge.
Tesla’s recall is the largest safety recall the company has faced since it began producing electric cars in 2008. The testament to the company’s commitment to providing a safe and reliable product is highlighted by their decision to make sure all vehicles are properly inspected before returning them to their owners.
The issue was noticed earlier this week when Tesla inspected certain vehicles at their US service centers. The company immediately has reported the issue to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and have since issued a recall for all vehicles affected with the potentially faulty left-hand doors.
While some may criticize Tesla for making such a big recall, the company is responding quickly and efficiently to ensure the safety of its customers. Teslas are some of the most advanced and well-made vehicles on the market, and the recall ensures that all cars will meet the highest safety standards at all times.
At the end of the day, Tesla should be commended for taking quick and proactive steps to prevent any potential harm to its customers. If you have purchased a Model S or Model X, you should immediately get in contact with Tesla in order to get your vehicle inspected and repaired.
