Tesla is voluntarily recalling some Model X vehicles because of a power steering issue.

The company says Model X vehicles built after mid-October 2016 are not affected.

Tesla will replace the bolts and apply a corrosion-preventative sealer in all affected Model X vehicles to account for the possibility that any vehicle may later be used in a cold, highly corrosive environment.
