Tesla recalled 5,974 the model year 2019-2021 Model 3s and model year 2020-2021 Model Ys due to potential safety risk.
The brake caliper bolts may be loose, allowing the brake caliper to separate and contact the wheel rim.
Contact with the rim may cause a loss of tire pressure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Tesla Service will inspect and tighten, or replace the caliper bolts, free of charge.
The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for owner notification.
There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
