 Description of the problemPlease note that i have used the vin of a junkyard model 3 to make this complaint since i do not yet have the vin of the actual car. This is a complaint about tesla suspension breakages. Here is a video which shows in great detail what happens when the bolt on the suspension fails. Https://www. Youtube. Com/watch? V=bstebktx0bg the video is from korea and has english subtitles. You have received many complaints about tesla broken suspensions and in particular this ball joint bolt which repeatedly snaps. This video removes any doubt about the issue. These bolts are made in two parts welded together and the part always snaps in a brittle fracture in the zone close to the welded join. I have informed the korean owner that i have filed a complaint on his behalf. Please watch the video which also details other problems including dangerous "phantom braking" thank you.
