What part of your car was affected? Suspension
Here is a Tesla in the junkyard. https://www.iaai.com/Vehicle?itemID=27048301&RowNumber=13&loadRecent=True
It has been in a major accident and is extensively damaged. The RH back wheel has gone whompy. The tread on that tire is completely worn down to the canvas. The car must have been driven for several miles with the tread rubbing against the bodywork until eventually the suspension broke off completely. This exact same failure has been reported many times. A high quality photograph of an incident that occurred in China is also attached for purpose of comparison. The same result, driver is unaware of the problem until the wheel finally snaps off. This is a design/manufacturing failure. Please investigate. Concerned citizen etc.
