Those who own or lease a 2018 or 2019 Tesla Model 3 should know that hundreds of formal customer complaints have arisen in recent years regarding persistent steering system failures in these vehicles. Drivers have experienced a range of concerning issues, including a steering assist function failure, loud squeaking noises, unresponsive steering columns, and other worrisome problems. So far, the manufacturer has issued eleven safety recalls impacting these makes and models, but many Tesla customers are still waiting for permanent solutions to these recurring issues.
One owner of a 2018 Tesla Model 3 reported that he began hearing loud, concerning noises from the left wheel. The vehicle alerted him of alignment and stability control issues, but the dealership found no problems and deemed the vehicle safe to operate. Hours later, the left wheel locked up entirely and had to be towed. Similar reports of steering system-related problems continue to arise, with many consumers expressing frustration over the lack of clear explanations and lasting repairs.
