Tesla recalling 11000 Model X SUVs over rear seats issue

Share

A very ambitious Model X for an electric SUV has a problem with passenger seats, company announced that it will recall 11 thousand vehicles.

According to the Tesla, the company had determined that a small number of cables in the second row fold-flat seats in "some" 2016 and 2017 SUVs may need readjustments. Although Tesla has not received reports of any issues or accidents relating to this condition, we will be inspecting the affected customers' cars so that we can confirm whether any adjustment is needed. The Palo Alto, California-based automaker says some cables in the seat may have been improperly tightened, which prevents the left seat from locking in an upright position and it could move forward during a crash.

Tesla says it has no reports of injuries associated with the issue.

Repairs of the seats will be undertaken by Tesla's new mobile service. Tesla stock has outperformed during the current year as investors are confident that the company would make strong sales for Model 3.

The company added that it can address all of the needed repairs with its mobile fix service.

Because Tesla does not reveal region-specific sales numbers, it also does not offer details on the number of vehicles affected by this recall in Australia. The problem, which was discovered in internal testing, involves incorrectly adjusted seat cables. We can address 100% of these repairs via mobile service, and you will have the choice to do that or to bring in your auto to a Service Center.

The recall affects Model X units produced from 28 October 2016 through 16 August 2017.
