Tesla Model S & Model X Owners File Suspension Class Action Lawsuit



Tesla is considering spending this holiday season at lawsuit, since owners of the Model S and Model X electric vehicles (EVs) have filed a class-action lawsuit against the automaker for dismissing safety problems.  The lawsuit alleges Tesla’s suspension design placed passenger safety at risk and that the company deliberately participated in a cover-up.

Tesla was set in 2003 and also has since skyrocketed above the automobile market to become the most valuable automaker in the world. As an EV powerhouse, Tesla has faced several lawsuits and various degrees of lawsuit during its young life. In reality, there was even a lawsuit settlement in 2009 to determine which of the company’s early employees could claim the name of co-founder, current CEO Elon Musk comprised. Additionally, this is not the primary safety issue that the automaker has confronted either. Tesla lately started remembering tens of thousands of its Model X and Model Y E-SUVs.

According to a report by CNET, the lawsuit incorporates many National Highway Traffic Safety Administration complaints and brings attention to a China Tesla remember over what seems to be the exact same problem with Model X and Model S vehicles. Moreover, the documents also provide evidence alleging Tesla’s attempt to cover up the safety problems. Thus far, it seems the safety issues in question only concern some of Tesla’s old versions.

The problem pertains to alleged front and rear suspension control arm components on Model S and Model X electric vehicles built between 2013 and 2018. Apparently, the issue can cause a driver losing control of their automobile, as the wheel and the suspension start to separate. In some instances cited in the suit, the wheel fully detached from the vehicle. Tesla’s previous argument has said that the problem is due in substantial part to abuse from the motorists themselves, but the plaintiffs believe this was Tesla’s attempt at evading the responsibility (and heavy cost) of declaring a design mistake.

The lawsuit is asserting that Tesla supposedly made large efforts to avoid the immense cost of remembering the EVs, and instead issued small technical support bulletins in an attempt to address the evident issues. What’s even worse (if accurate ) would be the allegations that the American automaker necessary client NDAs (Non-Disclosure Agreements) to repair the problem. Currently, Tesla has a new program release and another remember to concentrate on, but this problem isn’t going away today that the lawsuit has formally been filed in California. It is all up to the courts to determine what’s next, but Tesla might need to rehire its PR team to help do damage control on another recent chip to the ethics of Tesla’s carbon dioxide armor.
