Tesla Recalls 11,000 Model X's

Tesla has announced a voluntary recall impacting 11,000 Model X’s globally. The recall relates to a rear seat issue that could cause it to not lock into lace.

According to the automaker, cables that are part of the latch system on the second row seating in the Model X may have been improperly installed on units built between October 28, 2016 and August 16, 2017. If improperly installed, the latch may not properly engage the seat, causing it and passengers seated into it to dislodge from the vehicle during a crash.

Tesla says it has no reports of injuries associated with the issue. The company also says that it estimates only about three percent of the 11,000 units are impacted by the issue.

Owners of impacted units will be notified by Tesla. Tesla will either fix the issue by bringing the vehicle to a Tesla service center or the owner can request Tesla’s mobile service to come to them to fix the matter.
