Thanks to whistleblowers there was a recall on problems like these, the whistleblower efforts and recalls will probably save lives and property.
Documenting and reporting problems like these to government watchdogs like NHTSA has probably helped pressure Tesla into doing a "voluntary recall". Though such actions have or at least will save lives and property damage; Tesla forums and other Tesla cultists are angry, hateful and vindictive against the whistleblowers that saved lives, property and helped to improve the Tesla product.
"Tesla voluntarily recalls 123,000 Model S cars over faulty steering component"
If I understand correctly Tesla and its service centers first brushed off these problems when they were first reported to them, thus whistleblowers had to contact government agencies because Tesla and its service centers had a disregard for safety. I've heard some Tesla owners were even charged parts and labor for these problems before the recall was issued.
It's pathetic when a car company is so lousy that Tesla owners try to Macgyver an unsafe temporary stopgap to get the power steering to work.
