Tesla is recalling 401 model year 2020 Model Ys.

The bolts connecting the front upper control arm and steering knuckle may have not been tightened properly, allowing the upper control arm to detach from the steering knuckle.

A detached upper control arm can cause the wheels to lean in or out, decreasing the driver's ability to steer and increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Tesla will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, and -- as necessary -- tighten the bolts free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Tesla customer service at (877) 798-3752. Tesla's number for this recall is SB-20-31-012.
