Tesla Is Recalling 11000 Model X SUVs Due to a Seat Issue

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. The issue at hand only affects Model X vehicles with second-row fold-flat seats with build dates between October 28, 2016, and August 16, 2017. It should be noted that Tesla has not received any reports of this happening in customer cars - it discovered the problem during internal testing. Tesla believes only about 3 percent of the recalled vehicles have the issue. Customers with an affected vehicle can take it to a Tesla dealership for servicing, or contact one of Tesla's mobile fix units.

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.

The issue lies within the cables connected to that seat.

The AP reports that the issue is due to a cable in the seat not being tightened correctly, which prevents the left seat from locking in the upright position. There are no parts required for this inspection, and the adjustment will take only about 10 minutes to complete. Model X has received the highest rating in every category and subcategory in independent crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and we are committed to ensuring that Model X remains the safest SUV in the world.
