Rivian Automotive Recalls Almost All of Its 2022 Vehicles

Rivian Automotive is recalling nearly all of its 2022 vehicles due to a problem with a wheel fastener. Rivian said in a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) it was recalling 12,212 RT1 trucks, RS1 SUVs, and EDV commercial vans after discovering that the front upper control arm and the steering knuckle retention fastener for each front wheel was not properly tightened.

The recall involves vehicles made from Dec. 10, 2021, to Sept. 27, 2022. The company indicated the problem could cause excessive tilting of the wheel and in rare cases, separation. It explained drivers may “experience excessive noise, vibration, and harshness from the front suspension, and/or a change in steering performance or feel.” Rivian noted it hasn’t received any reports of injuries from the issue, which it added affects about 1% of the vehicles.

The auto manufacturer announced that it will set up pop-up service areas with particularly high concentrations of Rivian owners and that it can inspect and repair all of the faulty automobiles within thirty days at no cost to customers. Rivian also stated that the costs to the firm would not be significant.

If you have one of these affected vehicles, Rivian Automotive says to bring it to a dealer as soon as possible so that the problem can be fixed.
