Tesla Recalls 11000 Model X SUVs

Tesla отзывает большую партию автомобилей

The electric vehicle maker emailed Tesla customers on Thursday regarding the recall, stating that "a small number of cables in the second row fold-flat seats" may need to be adjusted.

Tesla said it has not received reports of any issues or accidents relating to the issue. The company issued notices to 90,000 Model S sedan owners for possible seatblet defects back in 2015, another for 2,700 Model X SUVs in 2016 for a third-row seat problem, and one for 53,000 S and Model X SUV earlier this year over potential parking brake issues.

The automaker said that it discovered the issue during internal testing.

"We can address 100 per cent of these repairs via mobile service, and customers will have the choice to do that or to bring their vehicle into a Service Centre". Tesla believes only about 3 per cent of the recalled vehicles have the issue of not locking in place properly. Owners can stake their cars to a Tesla Service Center if they prefer.




National Road Traffic Security Administration, Tesla Model X has achieved good grades in independently conducted security tests, but test result indicated that some cables in rear seats should be adjusted.

Palo Alto, California-based Tesla said it would begin alerting customers to the issue Thursday. There are no parts required for this inspection, and the adjustment will take only about 10 minutes to complete.

"Until then, there is no issue with continuing to drive your Model X", Tesla wrote in the email. Tesla's going to use mobile fix services for this job.

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