US Regulator, NHTSA, Examines Tesla's "suspension Case"

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has begun investigating possible problems in the front suspension of 114.76 thousand Tesla cars, according to a document posted on the regulator's website.

In particular, the Department began a preliminary assessment for the 2015-2017 Model S and 2016-2017 Model X vehicles after receiving 43 complaints about problems in the front suspension.

"The office of defect investigation has opened this preliminary assessment to determine the extent, frequency, and consequences of the alleged defect," the regulator said.

This news comes after, earlier this week, Tesla decided to recall 401 Model Y cars produced in 2020 due to suspension defects.

The American company Tesla Motors was founded in 2003 as a developer and manufacturer of electric vehicles and related technologies. The company has a headquarter in Palo Alto, California, USA. In addition to electric vehicles, the company uses its own technology to produce batteries and electric motors and sells them to other car companies, such as Toyota and Daimler.
