Tesla filed the issues with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration due to manufacturing defects. The company intends to recall the vehicle for testing and fixing.
The company recalled 9136 Model X SUVs because while driving some of the parts of the bodies could detach.

Additionally, 437 model Y SUV were recalled over a loose bolt which can cause separation of the upper control arm from the steering knuckle. If the bolts aren’t tight the driver can lose the ability to steer the car.
