Tesla Recalls 11000 Model X SUVs On Possible Seat Issue

13 October, 2017, 04:24 | Author: Regina Silva

No injuries or incidents of the cable failing have occurred, Tesla said in a written statement.

The recall only covers vehicles with second-row fold-flat seats that were built between October 28, 2016 and August 16, 2017. The recall affects Model X SUVs built between October 28, 2016 and September 1, 2017. This can prevent the left seat from locking in an upright position and allow the seat to slide forward during a crash.

The Elon Musk-founded automaker says that the Model X problem is the result of cables within the seat that have not been properly tightened.

Tesla began informing customers about the recall Thursday.

Tesla recalls tend to be voluntary, and its latest is no exception. It should be noted that Tesla has not received any reports of this happening in customer cars - it discovered the problem during internal testing. There haven't been any reports of seat issues in the field.

The company also said that it can attend to all the needed repairs with its mobile fix service and owners can send their auto to the nearest Tesla Service Centre if they choose to do so.

The company recalled 90,000 Model S sedans worldwide in 2015 over a possible defect in the front seat belt assembly and a year earlier had recalled 29,222 of the same model over a charging defect that posed a fire hazard. Model X has received the highest rating in every category and subcategory in independent crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and we are committed to ensuring that Model X remains the safest SUV in the world.
