The recall was announced by the Chinese State Administration for Market Regulation.
The Chinese website Gasgoo, which specializes in the automotive market, reported that the recall includes 29,193 major Model S and Model X cars manufactured between September 17, 2013 and August 16, 2017 and 19,249 imported Model S cars produced between September 17, 2013 and October 15. 2018.
Cars were produced at the Tesla plant in Fremont, California.
The regulator has ordered Tesla to replace the rear front suspension linkage and rear suspension linkage linkage free of charge for all cars included in the recall free of charge.
In 2016, Tesla CEO Elon Musk rejected similar complaints received for possible unsafe suspensions or defects of Model S cars in the United States.
At the time, Musk said on Twitter and in a blog post that the U.S. auto safety authority “found no cause for concern about the safety of the Model S suspensions and did not request any other information from us.” He also claimed that complaints about suspension issues were made up.
Tesla and the US car safety regulator did not immediately respond to requests for information.
In China, this is the fourth recall of Tesla cars imported from the United States.
The previous recalls were for the replacement of defective airbags manufactured by the Japanese company Takata and for the repair or prevention of steering problems.
Meanwhile, the Tesla Model 3 car made in China is the best-selling electric model this year.
The Chinese Passenger Car Association announced that Tesla sold 79,908 Model 3 vehicles made in China in the first nine months of this year.
Tesla has recently started exporting some of the Model 3 cars produced in China to Europe.
