Tesla recalls 11000 Tesla Model X SUVs

Tesla recalling 11000 Model X SUVs for seat issue

The recall involves vehicles built with fold-flat second row seats, and only affects vehicles made between October 28, 2016 to August 16, 2017.

"Model X has received the highest rating in every category and subcategory in independent crash tests conducted by the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and we are committed to ensuring that Model X remains the safest SUV in the world", a Tesla spokesperson said in a statement.

"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". The issue is a minor one that can be fixed in about 10 minutes and has to do with seat cables in the second row.

The company, which is led by Elon Musk, said about 3 percent of the recalled vehicles may have the issue, which was detected during internal testing.

Tesla promoted their unique mobile fix service, saying that in the last two months, they've handled around 40 percent of the company's Takata airbag recall repairs via that service.

Bad news for Tesla Model X owners: you might have to spend a little time without your vehicle.

Investigators have found 200 incidents of Paddock moving through the city, and at no time was he with anyone else, Lombardo said. Paddock's testimony offers little insight into what could have prompted last week's attack.

What Owners Should Do: Tesla will begin notifying owners today.

In the meantime, Tesla has advised owners against having two adults sitting in the middle and left rear seats at the same time.

Tesla Model X had a similar seat problem before.

It's important to stress that this recall is voluntary, and that means it can't be too serious. Customers can choose to use the mobile service or to visit a service center, but either way, no new parts are necessary.

Tesla had a great appreciation for Model X design.
