Tesla has issued a recall for certain 2020-2022 Model Y cars over concerns the suspension knuckles may fracture.

This could result in the separation of the suspension links, leading to reduced vehicle stability and control and increasing the risk of a crash.

According to the recall notice posted to the NHTSA database (21V912000), 826 cars are affected.

The fix requires a visit to Tesla Service, who will inspect and replace the knuckles as necessary, free of charge.

Owners will be notified by mail starting January 18, 2022, but you can check yourself to see if you vehicle is part of the recall by entering your VIN in Tesla’s VIN Recall Search tool.

You can also contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752 and quote Tesla’s recall number SB-21-31-004.

No similar recall has been posted to Transport Canada’s website as of the time of publication.
