Tesla Model Y electric car owners hear squeaks and extraneous noises while driving
Techno section editor
This year, Elon Musk pompously presented the compact electric crossover Tesla Model Y. The novelty, although it turned out to be extremely successful, but the electric car had a lot of problems.
The owners of some models complained on the Tesla Motors Club forum about extraneous noises and squeaks while driving. Some also noticed the strange position of the front wheel: its upper part was recessed into the arch.

After diagnosing, the mechanics discovered the problem in most of those who complained about the strange behavior of the electric car. The fault was the lack of a ball nut of the lower arm of the front suspension.
Tesla Model Y Front Suspension Ball Joint Loose Bolt
Some Model Y owners were lucky: when they heard a suspicious knock from the front suspension when turning the steering wheel at low speeds, they found that the nut had not yet loosened, although it was already loosened enough to rotate it with a finger.
Obviously, the problem lies in the fact that the nuts of the ball joint at the Tesla factory were not tightened with the required tightening torque, or they were completely forgotten during assembly – most of the electric crossovers on which the defect was found were not even a month old from the moment they left the assembly line.
Recall that earlier experts told how quickly the batteries of electric vehicles get tired. At the same time, according to Mazda, electric vehicles are worse than diesel for the environment.
