EV Technology Due to a potential issue with a loose fastener that could result in a driver losing steering control, Rivian Automotive Inc. announced on Friday that it would recall almost all of its vehicles.
A fastener connecting the front upper control arm and steering knuckle may not have been “sufficiently torqued” in some vehicles, according to California-based Rivian, which recalls nearly 13,000 vehicles.
So far this year, electric vehicle manufacturers have produced fourteen thousand three hundred seventeen automobiles.
After learning seven reports possibly relating to the structural problem of torqued fasteners, Rivian informed the affected customers about the recall, the business stated. There have been no injuries as a result of this flaw.
In a letter to consumers, Rivian Chief Executive RJ Scaringe advised them to exercise caution if they encounter any problems because “in rare cases, the nut could loosen totally.”
It’s crucial to remember the potential risks involved and why we are voluntarily carrying out this recall, stated Scaringe.
Due to the possibility that airbags might not deploy when a kid is seated in the front passenger seat, Rivian recalled around 500 2022 R1T electric pickup trucks in the United States in May.
