Obviously it is in Tesla's best interest to deny these claims but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration just doesn't start investigating a company for no reason either. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
The issue came to light after an article on DailyKanban.com noted reports of Tesla owners who are allegedly experiencing problems with their suspensions, including one owner of a 2013 Model S who says the "left front hub assembly separated from the upper control arm" after only putting 70,000 miles on the car. The article also contains claims from some owners that they are being asked to sign nondisclosure agreements that they believe would prevent them from taking their issue to NHTSA.
