Tesla recalls 11000 Tesla Model X SUVs

Tesla recalls 11000 Tesla Model X SUVs

In its official statement, Tesla said, "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". Tesla hasn't received any reports of this happening to Model X owners, but is issuing the recall based on its research.

According to Tesla, that recall was initiated after the seats failed a strength test in the European Union. 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.

This is the second time Tesla has issued a recall for its Model X SUVs due to problems with the seats' latch.

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 auto seats are going to stay in place.

On the other side of the draw, Juan Martin del Potro overcame a nasty tumble to beat Serbia's Viktor Troicki 4-6 6-1 6-4. A fan at least came away with a demolished racquet for a souvenir after the young German handed it to a spectator.

It's important to stress that this recall is voluntary, and that means it can't be too serious. There are no parts required for this inspection, and the adjustment will take only about 10 minutes to complete. Tesla's going to use mobile fix services for this job.

The recall involves vehicles with fold-flat second row seats made between October 28, 2016, and August 16, 2017.

Tesla had a great appreciation for Model X design. There haven't been any reports of seat issues in the field.

Thank you for being a Tesla customer and we apologise for this inconvenience.
