Tesla To Voluntarily Recall 11000 Model X Vehicles Over Seat Cables That Could Break During A Crash

Tesla Recalls Model X SUVs to Fix Seatback Problems

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. Tesla informed that as per their estimate, only 3 percent of recalled vehicles have an issue with the seat cable.

The Model offered for sale globally is a problem that prevents rear seats of X from locking properly, and that problem will leave passengers vulnerable at a possible accident.

Repairs of the seats will be undertaken by Tesla's new mobile service.

Fortunately the fix isn't too hard, and you can even have a Tesla technician visit you at your home if you prefer - it takes about 10 minutes to correct the fault, and then you can drive away safe in the knowledge that all your vehicle seats are going to stay in place.

The voluntary recall comes at a time when investors and Wall Street seem divided about the prospects for the green automaker.

Tesla began informing customers about the recall Thursday. In the spring of past year it recalled 2,700 Model X SUVS because of locking hinge in the third-row seats that didn't work. Tesla's going to use mobile fix services for this job. The recall affects Model X SUVs built between October 28, 2016 and September 1, 2017.

Tesla had a great appreciation for Model X design. 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.
