The company Tesla decided to recall 123,000 of its electric cars. As reported by The Wall Street Journal, this is the largest service of the American automaker. The recall campaign will affect the Model S sedans, which were released before April 2016.
The reason for the service action is the bolts in the power steering, which are prone to excessive corrosion. This is especially true for countries with a cold climate. According to engineers Tesla, the impact on the bolts have anti-ice reagents. In the service centers, the replaced Tesla Model S will replace these parts. All works will be absolutely free for owners of electric cars.
