Tesla is recalling more than 40,000 vehicles over a steering issue.
According to the filing, Model S and Model X vehicles could lose electronic power assist steering when hitting potholes or rough sections of road.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has taken issue with the term ‘recall’, insisting the phrase is outdated because Tesla issues can often be fixed with a software update.

It comes as Musk sells nearly $4 billion worth of Tesla shares.
The Tesla CEO sold 19.5 million shares since the beginning of November, according to documents filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Musk also sold $15.4 billion worth of Tesla shares earlier this year.
The sales come as no surprise following news of Musk’s Twitter takeover.
After attempting to back out more than once, Musk reached a deal to buy Twitter for a whopping $44 billion late last month.
It’s not clear where the proceeds of his Tesla stock are going, but it’s a pretty safe assumption most of it is needed for the Twitter purchase.
Tesla shares have lost 46 percent of their value this year alone.
Musk pocketed about $202 for each Tesla share he sold since closing on the Twitter deal.
