Tesla recalling 11000 Model X SUVs over rear seats issue

Tesla recalling 11000 Model X SUVs for seat issue

The automaker recalled 2,700 Model X vehicles in April 2016 because the third-row seats could move if there were an accident.

Only about 3 per cent of the electric SUVs being recalled are expected to have issues, which the carmaker said it can correct in about 10 minutes with its mobile service operators.

Tesla is taking a proactive action to ensure the safety of some of Model X owners who may need an adjustment to their second row seat.

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.

It's important to stress that this recall is voluntary, and that means it can't be too serious. Tesla's going to use mobile fix services for this job.

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.

The Palo Alto, Calif. -based company started informing customers via email about the recall which covers Model X SUVs that have a fold flat down row of back seats and were produced from October 28, 2016, to August 16 of 2017.

Tesla had a great appreciation for Model X design. (Even with this issue, the seat is strong enough for a single adult or two children.) You may also continue to use child seats using the LATCH anchors, as these anchors are attached to the seat base and not the seat back. The issue was discovered during an internal testing.
