Recall Formalized for Tesla Brake/Tire Issue

Tesla, Inc., has upgraded its voluntary recall of certain electric vehicles for a potential issue concerning a brake-caliper-bolt defect which could lead to loss of tire pressure, to a full-blown National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) authorized recall.

AsĀ reported in the May 31, 2021 The BRAKE Report, Tesla originally sent emails to the owners of these vehicles alerting them to the situation. The email did instruct the owners to schedule a service appointment to have the fasteners inspected and, if necessary, repaired.
