Rivian has just orchestrated its first recall campaign. Almost all of the production is concerned.
It’s a setback that Rivian and its CEO, RJ Scaringe, would certainly have done without. After financial and production problems, Rivian is now struggling technically.
More than 12,000 of the brand’s cars have to go back to the manufacturer’s workshops for a suspension problem. Indeed, the nut connecting the front upper control arm and the steering ball joint may lack tightness.
This is what Rivian communicates, which specifies the symptoms that these vehicles can encounter. Excessive noise, vibration and overly rigid suspension can result. But the more serious consequence would be significant camber and increased difficulty in controlling the vehicle.
A first case took place on August 13, 2022, before two more were added 11 days later. On September 28, six more signaled themselves and on September 30, Rivian organized this recall to avoid any risk of accident.
The recall affects R1T electric pick-ups produced between August 23, 2021 and September 24, 2022. For the R1S SUV, the production dates are between September 28, 2021 and September 23, 2022. This also affects the delivery van of the brand, the EDV. The manufacturer will contact all customers before November 24.
