Norway's traffic-safety regulator has initiated an inquiry into suspension failures in Tesla vehicles, adding to the recent recall of 2 million Tesla cars due to driver-assistance system issues. The Norwegian Public Roads Administration has opened an investigation into the Model S and X vehicles following complaints from owners. Tesla Norway has been contacted for more information, and the investigation is currently ongoing. Tesla has not responded to requests for comment on the matter.
The recent recall was prompted by concerns from the government that Tesla's Autopilot system could be misused by drivers. This recall affects Models 3, S, X, and Y produced between late 2012 and December 7, 2023, that have the automatic steering function. Tesla plans to address the issue by deploying free software updates that provide additional alerts and controls to encourage drivers to remain vigilant while using Autopilot.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been closely examining Tesla's system due to a series of high-profile crashes and questions surrounding the company's claims. While Tesla advises drivers to stay focused on the road and keep their hands on the wheel when using Autopilot, there have been instances of drivers overriding these safety functions.
