You’re here is forced to recall vehicles due to a problem with mounting the front suspension link. According to communications from the government, in Canada, we are talking about 270 copies distributed among the Model 3 (2019 to 2020) and Model Y (2020-2021).

Vigilance to noise

Very few vehicles are affected by the recall, but owners may notice the problem before it gets too serious if they hear unusual noise from the nose gear. The repair will be done in the workshop and, of course, free of charge.

Here is the official recall issued by Transport Canada:

Problem : On certain vehicles, the bolts that secure the front suspension side links to the subframe may have been improperly tightened.

Security risk : A loss of vehicle stability could cause loss of control and increase the risk of an accident.

Corrective actions : Tesla to notify owners by email and arrange to schedule an inspection of the front side link bolts. The bolts will be tightened or replaced by Tesla Service as needed.
