Qatar: After the wheels fell off while driving, America opened an investigation into a defect in Tesla cars

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on Wednesday it has opened a preliminary investigation into 120,000 2023 Tesla Model Y vehicles after two reports of steering wheels falling off while driving.

The Department responsible for automobile safety in the United States said that the steering wheels of the two 2023 company models, which had low mileage, were completely loose. The vehicles were delivered to their owners without the anchor bolt that connects the steering wheel to the steering column.

The department opened a preliminary investigation to evaluate "The scope, pace and manufacturing processes associated with this condition".

The investigation is the first step before the department is required to recall the vehicles.

The department said it received a complaint from a person who bought a new Model Y five days ago and was on the road in New Jersey on January 29. "And suddenly the steering wheel fell off. I was lucky because there was no car behind and I was able to pull over to the side of the road".
