California, June 2
Tesla Inc is recalling nearly 6,000 US vehicles because brake caliper bolts could be loose, with the potential to cause a loss of tyre pressure.
The recall covers certain 2019-2021 Model 3 vehicles and 2020-2021 Model Y vehicles. Tesla’s filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it had no reports of crashes or injuries related to the issue and that the company will inspect and tighten, or replace, the caliper bolts as necessary.
It said loose caliper bolts could allow the brake caliper to separate and contact the wheel rim, which could cause a loss of tyre pressure in “very rare circumstances.” — Reuters
