Tesla recalling 123K Model S sedans to fix power steering system flaw



Tesla is recalling 123,000 of its Model S sedans to adress an issue with the power steering.

The company has discovered that five bolts securing the power steering motor in place can come loose or break due to corrosion, which can lead to a failure of the power assist.

The action affects all cars worldwide that were built before April 2016.

Tesla says the problem happens infrequently in places where salt is used to clear snow and ice from roads. It's recalling all the cars even in warm-weather states just in case. No crashes or injuries have been reported.

Service centers will replace the bolts with ones that are more corrosion-resistant. Owners will be notified Thursday by email. Tesla says replacement parts will be available first in cold-weather areas, then in warmer climates.
