Tesla Model X Recalled for Faulty Seat

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onApril 13th, 2016


Tesla Motors Inc. will be issuing a recall on the Model X when the company identified an issue with the third row seat latch during internal crash testing. The issue is that during a frontal crash test using stricter European Union standards, a latch meant to hold the seat upright collapsed during testing.

According to Jon McNeil, Tesla’s head of global sales and service, “We’ve had no issues with failures in the field. But consistent with Tesla’s approach, we’re erring on the side of putting our customers’ safety first.” The recall will impact approximately 2,700 Model Xs which were all destined for the US.

Tesla plans to first contact all of the affected owners and provide them with details of the recall and instruction on how to get their vehicles repaired.
