Tesla Suspension Problems Prompt NHTSA Probe of 115,000 Cars

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating whether faulty suspension parts on nearly 115,000 Tesla Inc. cars can result in damage to the tires.

The agency said it received 43 complaints about 2015 through 2017 Tesla Model S and 2016 through 2017 Model X vehicles.

NHTSA said 32 of the complaints involve failures that occurred during low-speed parking maneuvers and 11 while driving — four of those at highway speeds.

“The complaints appear to indicate an increasing trend, with 34 complaints received in the last two years and three of the incidents at highway speeds reported within the last three months,” the agency said.

In a 2017 service bulletin, Tesla said: “Some Model S and Model X vehicles may have been manufactured with front suspension fore links that may not meet Tesla strength specifications. In the event of link failure, the driver can still maintain control of the vehicle but the tire may contact the wheel arch liner.”

U.K. Virus Restrictions Could Last Until Easter, Sky News Says

The U.K.’s Covid-19 restrictions won’t likely be lifted until Easter next year, Sky News reported, citing unidentified senior sources.

The government’s scientific advisers have warned Prime Minister Boris Johnson and senior ministers about the need for prolonged measures, Sky News said. The sources told Sky that restrictions could continue into April even if vaccination for Covid-19 began at the end of January.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson earlier warned of “long months ahead” in the fight against the coronavirus, as his government put most of England into the highest two tiers of new restrictions when a lockdown lifts next week. Leading members of Johnson’s Conservative Party have said the government’s new three-tier system is too harsh because it groups broad regions together, even if some areas are not hot-spots.

After a surge of infections this fall, the latest data indicate the virus is no longer spreading exponentially in the U.K. For the first time since Aug. 14, the so-called R-rate, which estimates how many people each infected person passes the disease onto, had a ceiling of 1, the government said Friday.

Iran’s Rouhani Says Israel Behind Assassination of Scientist

Iran President Hassan Rouhani blamed Israel for the apparent assassination of a leading Iranian nuclear scientist on Friday.

Rouhani called the killing of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh an “act of terrorism” carried out by the “mercenary Israel regime,” according to a statement published on his official news portal Saturday.

Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said on Friday that there were “serious indications of Israeli role” in the death of Fakhrizadeh, while Iran’s armed forces vowed retaliation.

Fakhrizadeh was the head of research and innovation at Iran’s Ministry of Defense and widely seen as having a major role in the country’s nuclear program. He was killed close to the Damavand campus of Islamic Azad University, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) east of central Tehran, the semi-official Tasnim news reported.

The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declined to comment, as did officials at the Pentagon. The Central Intelligence Agency didn’t immediately respond to questions about whether the U.S. had knowledge of plans to carry out an assassination.
