Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,700 Model X SUVs built before March 26, 2016
The Problem: Reuters is reporting that a faulty locking hinge in the third-row seats could allow the seats to fall forward in a crash, increasing the risk of an injury in an accident. The automaker said it’s recalling the seats after they failed a strength test in Europe. The Model X passed U.S. seat-strength tests, but Europe’s are more stringent, according to Reuters.
The Fix: Owners will have their seats replaced for free. The repair will replace both third-row seats.
What Owners Should Do: Tesla will begin notifying owners today. Owners can call the automaker at 877-798-3752 for more info.
