500,000 Model 3 and Model S recalled by Tesla for defects

In the United States, nearly a demi-million electric cars Telsa Model 3 et S are recalled by the manufacturer for a trunk fault, i.e. 356 309 Model 3 and 119 009 Model S concerned by this procedure.

The two models have different flaws. For the Model 3, repeated trunk opening and closing causes excessive wear on the coaxial cable. The latter is useful for the rear view camera and would make it unavailable to the driver.

Concerning the Model S, the fault is more serious. The front boot, following a misalignment of one of the latches, is thus likely to open unexpectedly and compromise the visibility of the driver, greatly increasing the risk of an accident.

The company estimates that only 1% of Model 3s and 14% of Model Ss are affected by this manufacturing defect. To correct the problems, Tesla will install a new harness and a new cable protector on the Model 3. As for the Model S, repositioning the latch would suffice.

Tesla also specifies that if the owners had already corrected this or these problem (s), they would not be reimbursed … Luckily, these faults have not resulted in any accidents or injuries at the present time.
