Tesla Recalls 11000 Model X Vehicles Over Seats That Could Fly Forward

Tesla Model X recall 2017 seat issue TESLAThe issue is with the second-row seats of the electric SUV
Delores Daniels | 14 October, 2017, 01:10

"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 told CNBC in a statement.

Tesla said it has not received reports of any issues or accidents relating to the issue. In an email to customers, Tesla said the left back seat may not be able to lock properly in the upright position due to cables that were tightened too much.

Repairs of the seats will be undertaken by Tesla's new mobile service.

To conduct the repairs, the company is deploying its mobile fix service - though customers can still elect to take the vehicle to their local service centre.

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 vehicle seats are going to stay in place.

The automaker began informing customers about the recall Thursday.

Approximately one month ago, Unplugged Performance (UP) showed off a render of its tricked out Tesla Model 3. As it has in the past, the company says the voluntarily recall is being "out of an abundance of caution". Any of Tesla's SUVs with single-post seats aren't affected. We can address 100% of these repairs via mobile service, and you will have the choice to do that or to bring in your auto to a Service Center. There are no parts required for this inspection, and the adjustment will take only about 10 minutes to complete.

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

However, since the release of the Model S, Tesla has been cricitised for issues with build quality and general quality control. The issue was discovered during an internal testing.
