Tesla recalls 11,000 Model X crossovers

Tesla plans to recall about 11,000 Model X crossover vehicles due to possible issues with their second-row fold-flat seats. Only about 3 percent of the electric SUVs being recalled are expected to have issues, which the carmaker said it can correct in about 10 minutes with its mobile service operators.

 

 

The problem, which was discovered in internal testing, involves incorrectly adjusted seat cables. Tesla has not received reports of any issues or accidents relating to the problem, it said. “We will be conducting a voluntary recall to inspect the affected vehicles and confirm whether any adjustment is needed,” the company said in an emailed 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.”

 

 

California-based Tesla said it would begin alerting customers to the issue Thursday. The problem only affects Model X vehicles built between Oct. 28, 2016, and Sept. 1, with a second row seat that folds down flat.

  • Mercedes-Benz Pop Up Store Could Be Coming To A Mall Near You
    16 Jul 2018

    Going to a car dealership isn’t always a pleasant experience. There are some ways to avoid a bad experience, but it would just be simpler if automakers allowed you to look at their cars somewhere else – like on the internet. Mercedes-Benz is looking to inch away from the painful dealership experience.  Mercedes pop-up stores are coming to the US this year. Unlike traditional dealerships, pop-up stores are designed to focus on showing off the product, rather than just selling it. Mercedes experimented last year with pop-up stores in Atlanta and Miami and will follow up wit...
