According to CNBC.com, Tesla Inc. is recalling 15,000 Model X SUVs. The recall was issued because of a potential issue that can lead to a loss of power steering assist that could make steering harder and increase the risk of a crash.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said aluminum bolts that attach the electric power steering gear assist motor to the gear housing may corrode and break. This would cause a reduction or complete loss of power steering assist in some 2016 model vehicles.
NHTSA said there are no known crashes or injuries associated with the issue. The recall covers 14,193 US vehicles and 843 in Canada.
