What happened?
This is another complaint about the Tesla suspensions. Commenting in this forum:https://seekingalpha.com/news/3396557-musk-denies-murdoch-favorite-tesla-chair *** Simon Mac, Contributor Comments2440 | + Follow @Idaho Stoic Meanwhile Tesla have redesigned the suspension control arms for the Model S/X with much stronger forged items. My Model S had replacement suspension links on multiple occasions, which in fairness to Tesla were done under the auspices of a TSB and without me bringing it up as a concern to the service department. I also had a lot of work done on the HV Junction box (again not raised by me). This seemed to happen not far after the SuC fire in Norway a little while back, a LOT of other Model S owners I know had the same work carried out. The question is are those folks who are skipping the suggested maintenance regime, missing out on a lot of work which is borderline recall, and Tesla are doing stuff that can’t be OTA’d under the cover of servicing.*** Please read this report from an owner and demand that Tesla recall all affected cars to avoid further crashes and loss of life. I am not a Tesla owner. I am a concerned citizen. My full name and contact details are included with this submission.
