特斯拉在北美召回1.5万辆Model X suv

2020-2-13 12:40

 

据路透社报道,特斯拉正在召回1.5万辆Model X运动型多用途车(suv),因为这可能会导致助力转向系统失效,从而加大转向难度,增加撞车风险。


此次召回适用于2016年X车型,包括2016年10月中旬之前生产的大部分X车型。据报道,这一举措并不影响在此日期之后生产的汽车。


2018年3月,特斯拉在全球范围内召回了2016年4月之前生产的12.3万辆Model S汽车,要求更换转向辅助电机螺栓。


美国国家公路交通安全管理局(NHTSA)和加拿大交通部表示,连接电动舵机辅助电机和齿轮外壳的铝螺栓可能会腐蚀和断裂,导致动力转向辅助的减少或完全丧失。


美国国家公路交通安全管理局表示,目前尚未发现与Model X召回有关的事故或人员伤亡。此次召回涉及14193辆美国汽车和843辆加拿大汽车。


加拿大交通部表示,特斯拉将安排更换安装螺栓,如果需要,还将更换舵机。


特斯拉表示,该公司“在受影响的Model X汽车中观察到,将该组件连接到方向盘上的螺栓受到了过度腐蚀”,而且主要发生在气候非常寒冷、使用道路盐的地区。特斯拉表示,如果螺栓失效,它将需要“更多的力量来转动方向盘,特别是在低速停车演习。”


该公司表示,目前还没有发现与动力转向部件有关的任何伤亡或碰撞。


特斯拉表示,在这个问题得到解决之前,司机可以继续驾驶他们的Model X运动型多用途车(suv)。该公司还表示,当有零部件时,将联系车主安排预约。


特斯拉表示,它还将在所有受影响的Model X车型上应用一种防腐蚀密封装置,以考虑到这些车辆日后可能被用于寒冷气候的可能性。

 

Tesla is recalling 15,000 Model X SUVs because of a potential issue that can lead to a loss of power steering assist that could make steering harder and increase the risk of a crash, Reuters reports.

The recall applies to 2016 model year X vehicles, and includes most Model X vehicles built before mid-October 2016. The move does not affect vehicles built after that date, according to the report.

Tesla issued a similar recall in March 2018 for 123,000 Model S vehicles worldwide built before April 2016 that called for replacing steering assist motor bolts.

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Transport Canada have said that aluminum bolts that attach the electric power steering gear assist motor to the gear housing may corrode and break causing a reduction or complete loss of power steering assist.

NHTSA said there are no known crashes or injuries associated with the Model X recall. The recall covers 14,193 US vehicles and 843 in Canada.

Tesla will arrange for the replacement of the mounting bolts and will also replace the steering gear if needed, Transport Canada said.

Tesla said it has “observed excessive corrosion on the bolts that attach this component to the steering gear in affected Model X vehicles” and primarily in areas with very cold climates that use road salts. Tesla said if the bolts fail it would require “more force to turn the steering wheel, especially during low speed parking maneuvers.”

The company said it was not aware of any injuries or collisions relating to the power steering component.

Drivers can continue to operate their Model X SUVs before the issue is addressed, Tesla said, adding that it will contact owners to schedule appointments when parts are available.

Tesla said it will also apply a corrosion-preventative sealer in all affected Model X vehicles to account for the possibility that vehicles may later be used in cold climates.
