What part of your car was affected? Suspension
There was a fatal crash in Hawaii on June12th this year. http://khon2.com/2017/06/12/waimanalo-man-killed-in-crash-on-pali-hwy/
The Tesla driver claims that he was hit from behind by a speeding SUV which then lost control and overturned killing the driver of that vehicle. Photographs at the crash site show the Tesla having lost the LH back wheel. The Tesla has now shown up in the salvage yard: https://www.copart.com/lot/32722527/Photos
The car is undamaged apart from having lost a wheel. It was NOT hit from behind. It is absolutely clear that the Tesla lost a wheel without any impact damage and that the SUV was forced to swerve to avoid the Tesla making that driver lose control and roll over causing his death. Please recall these cars before more innocent lives are lost. I am filing these reports in the public interest. A dummy USA address has been used to satisfy your website requirements.
