Tesla recalls Model X vehicles for seat fix
13 October 2017, 07:24 | Joann Bryant
Tesla is recalling 11000 SUVs because its seats could fail in a crash
Tesla has announced that it's voluntarily recalling 11,000 Model X SUVs worldwide, because the rear row of seats might not lock into place in the event of a crash.
According to the American electric automaker, only about three percent of the recalled vehicles are expected to have issues, which involves incorrectly adjusted seat cables on the second-row fold-flat seats. In April 2016, the company withdrew 2700 cars, since the third-row seat could move during accidents.
Therefore, the company made a decision to withdrew 11 thousand of cars produced in the period from 28 October 2016 to 1 September 2017 for additional settings and cable replacement.
Tesla said some cables in the seat may have been improperly tightened, which prevents the left seat from locking in an upright position.
Palo Alto, California-based Tesla said it would begin alerting customers to the issue Thursday.
It is the second time the model has been recalled because of problems with the seats. Tesla Model X owners can take their vehicle to a dealer for repairs or reach out to Tesla's mobile fix units.
Tesla said it noticed the issue during recent internal testing. 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.
