What part of your car was affected? Suspension
Here is a mangled Tesla in the junkyard: https://www.iaai.com/Vehicle?itemID=27142707&RowNumber=62&loadRecent=True Judging by the condition of the wreck and the bio-hazard stickers on it there can be little doubt that this was a fatal crash. The front suspension is broken which may or may not be the result of the crash. The back RH wheel and suspension is completely missing but there is no damage to the bodywork at that section of the car. Given the know weakness and repeated failure of Tesla suspensions it is a near certainty that the back wheel fell off and caused this crash. The number of smashed Teslas in the junkyards is astonishing considering that these are near new cars and quite rare on the roads. They are mostly bought by wealthy and mature age drivers. No other luxury passenger car crashes at such a high rate as Teslas. PLEASE do something about this. Thank you. Concerned citizen. (name and contact details provided) Date of crash an approximation.
