Part of the imported Model S and Model X vehicles with a production date between September 17, 2013 and August 16, 2017 will be recalled, a total of 29,193 vehicles. When some vehicles within the recall range are subjected to a large external impact, the ball studs of the rear linkage of the front suspension will have initial cracks. When the vehicles continue to be used, the cracks may extend and cause the studs to break. In extreme cases, the ball-end cone seat may fall out of the steering knuckle, affecting the control of the vehicle and increasing the risk of accidents. After the recall, Tesla will replace the improved left and right front suspension rear links for free.
In the above recall, 18,608 vehicles that need to replace the front suspension rear link and the rear suspension upper link are recalled at the same time, and only 10585 vehicles need to be recalled to replace the front suspension and rear link, and only need to recall the replacement of the rear suspension upper link. There are 641 vehicles.

According to the statistics of the recall announcement issued by the Defective Product Management Center of the State Administration for Market Regulation, Tesla recalled close to 15,000 vehicles in 2019, accounting for more than 40% of the total number of recalls that year.
