Here is a thread on Tesla Motor Club in which an owner from China posts conclusive evidence that the suspension has dangerous weaknesses.

2nd case of "this part just randomly broke!" coming from China.

News flash, people here don't fall for it. You hit something and are now trying to scam Tesla to get them to cover the damage. It's not going to work.
Sorry man, as far as I know, there has been at least 5 similar cases happened in China from the year 2014. Not all the cases reported here. Do all the owners try to scam Tesla? In this case specifically , the owner could have asked the insurance to cover the damage, why not? Because he got the police report clarifying he didn't hit anything before the accident.
If it's a single case, it could be doubtful, but now, it just happened successively.

Clearly, things like this have serious impact on the potential Chinese customers. The reason is easy: It's acceptable to have some mechanical failure, but it is unacceptable to have no reply, no solution and no customer care.

    The fractured bolt is getting set to slice the wheel in half.
    Happens over and over.
