Tesla voluntary recalls 11000 Model X SUVs worldwide

Tesla voluntary recalls 11000 Model X SUVs worldwide

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 has announced plans to recall roughly 11,000 Model X SUVs worldwide due to an issue with the rear seats, which could potentially fail to lock into place, according to the Associated Press.

There has been no real-life example of the defect but Tesla says it was discovered during testing, adding that it had voluntarily decided on the recall "out of an abundance of caution". Customers with an affected vehicle can take it to a Tesla dealership for servicing, or contact one of Tesla's mobile fix units.

Tesla said some cables in the seat may have been improperly tightened, which prevents the left seat from locking in an upright position. At this point, Tesla has not mentioned what could have caused the manufacturing fault.


The automaker recalled 2,700 Model X vehicles in April 2016 because the third-row seats could move if there were an accident. The result has been quality issues, particularly on the Model X, which introduced a number of brand-new ideas, like falcon-wing doors and panoramic windshields.

The company also said that it can attend to all the needed repairs with its mobile fix service and owners can send their auto to the nearest Tesla Service Centre if they choose to do so.

Things are just going to get worse with the production ramp-up of the Model 3.
