Tesla Recalls Cars for Steering Problems

By Staff Writer April 13, 2018

Tesla Inc. is recalling 70,421 2012-16 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.

Tesla will notify owners, and Tesla Service Centers will replace the steering gear mounting bolts and add a corrosion-preventative sealer, free of charge. The recall was expected to begin March 29.

Tesla's number for this recall is SB-18-32-002.
