That corrosion, should it happen, won't prevent the driver from steering the auto, however they may have to use more force to get the vehicle to turn at lower speeds.

Shah writes that the concerns about Tesla's accounting, insolvency risk and passenger safety are "largely without merit". If we assume that Tesla improves on this 1k per week production rate over the quarter, its Model 3 deliveries could reach 14k units for Q1.

Last year, 53,000 Model S and Model X vehicles were recalled due to a faulty parking brake.

A Tesla spokesperson said that if the bolts fail, the driver should still be able to control the vehicle.

The failure of the steering bolts might make it hard to handle the auto at higher speeds, but at low speeds, it will certainly require more effort to steer.

Tesla is now contacting affected Model S owners starting with those who live in colder regions.

Doug Field, senior vice president of engineering, said if the team can exceed 300 Model 3s a day it would be an "incredible victory" at a time when some investors are casting doubt on the company and shorting its stock. The company said that there's no immediate action customers need to take, and they'll be contacted to schedule a service appointment when parts are available. His checks point to an average of about 800 of the mass-market cars per week and believes production is just now getting close to 1,100 per week.

Recent news from the massive Gigafactory in Reno, Nevada suggests production is still not at its peak due to ongoing problems within the plant. (Tesla later told Bloomberg this shift would take place only Friday.) The production push will last through Saturday. "The reason this crash was so severe is that the crash attenuator, a highway safety barrier which is created to reduce the impact into a concrete lane divider, had either been removed or crushed in a prior accident without being replaced", the electric vehicle company wrote. The impact caused the vehicle to catch fire and two other vehicles made impact from behind. The 38-year-old driver was pulled from the vehicle by rescuers and later died at a hospital.

Thank you for being a Tesla customer, and we apologize for this inconvenience.
