What happened?
This complaint is made on behalf of a Tesla owner in Norway. Norway is a big market for Teslas. The NHTSA website is near impossible for owners outside of USA to use because it needs a USA to be supplied even though it is valid for overseas owners to complain. The attached photographs show a Tesla with a wheel that went whompy whilst being reversed. The text that describes the incident is also included. Here is the Tweet from owner https://twitter.com/Ignorancebliss_/status/1041647129318576128 Owners in Norway have been reporting similar cases of broken axles and whompy wheels for several years. https://elbilforum.no/forum/index.php?topic=31341.0 Please look at the bigger picture. These are not isolated freakish events. There have been literally hundreds of cases like this. All caused by undersized fragile suspension components. PLEASE demand an urgent recall. Thank you.
