Tesla recalls 11000 Model X SUVs over possible seat issue

Tesla is recalling 11000 SUVs because its seats could fail in a crash

Tesla Model X

The number of Model X vehicles being recalled was estimated at 11,000, with only a small percentage expected to have the seat cable problem. The automaker recalled 2,700 Model X vehicles in April 2016 because the third-row seats could move if there were an accident.

The electric vehicle maker started taking reservations for its mass-market sedan in March 2016, which is priced at $35,000 (29,824 Euros) to start and is key to the company's plans to expand market share.

Tesla said some cables in the seat may have been improperly tightened, which prevents the left seat from locking in an upright position. The spokesperson said 100 per cent of the repair can be conducted by the mobile unit, and the fix should only take about 10 minutes to address.

We are emailing to inform you of a proactive action Tesla is taking to ensure your safety as a Model X owner. It added that there had been no reported issues or accidents related to the problem. "Although we have never seen any incidence of it in the field, internal testing has indicated that if the cable is not properly adjusted, the seat back on the left side of the second-row seats could move forward during a crash".

Tesla said that the affected models were produced between October 28 last year and August 16 this year.
