The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating reports that 2023 Tesla Model 3 and Model Y vehicles have steering problems, writes The Verge.
The administration received 12 complaints in which drivers reported losing control over the steering wheel and power steering while driving. Five people reported an inability to drive, and seven reported a loss of power steering that led to difficulty driving.
According to the results of this investigation, approximately 280,000 cars may be affected.
As is known, many legal cases related to the safety of its cars have already been initiated against Tesla. For example, now the Attorney General of California is investigating a problem with autopilot, as well as the company’s marketing practices.
Beside this, in California, the company was sued by owners who complain about “phantom braking”. According to them, Tesla cars brake sharply on autopilot for seemingly no reason.
