Tesla is recalling 11000 Model X SUVs over broken seats

Tesla is recalling 11000 Model X SUVs over broken seats”

Tesla believes only 3 percent of the cars involved in the recall - about 300 vehicles - are actually experiencing the issue, but they will have to recall all the vehicles made in the time period to make sure.

"We will be conducting a voluntary recall to inspect the affected vehicles and confirm whether any adjustment is needed", the company said in an emailed statement.

During recent internal testing, Tesla determined that a small number of cables in the second row fold-flat seats in some 2016 and 2017 Model X vehicles may need to be adjusted.

In messages sent to Model X owners, Tesla offered to tend to inspecting and adjusting seats using its mobile service, giving an option of bringing vehicles into service centers.

Electric vehicle builder Tesla is calling back 11,000 examples of its Model X crossover to rectify a folding rear-seat issue.

Tesla will be utilizing its mobile fix service to conduct repairs as a part of this recall - we can address 100% of these repairs via mobile service, and customers will have the choice to do that or to bring their vehicle into a Service Center.

Tesla last week said it was delaying the planned launch of an electric transport truck, diverting resources to step up production of its Model 3 sedan and to produce batteries for storm-ravaged Puerto Rico. The recall affects Model X SUVs built between October 28, 2016 and September 1, 2017.

During testing, Tesla found that cables in the seats might not be in the right place, so the back left-side seats could move forward during a crash.

Bad news for Tesla Model X owners: you might have to spend a little time without your vehicle.

Tesla will be emailing customers with affected models today, and will be arranging service appointments. Tesla says that only 3% of the recalled vehicles are affected by the issue.

The issue was traced to a latch that could cause the seat on the left side of the second row to fall forward in the event of an crash. The company's mobile service means a service van comes to you.

"Until then, there is no issue with continuing to drive your Model X", Tesla wrote in the email.
