Tesla Recalls 11,000 Model X Vehicles Over Seats That Could Fly Forward

 Monday, October 16, 2017


It’s not only convenient, but often necessary, for a vehicle’s seats to move. However, if those seats don’t return and stay in their proper position it can be a problem. Case in point: 11,000 Tesla Model X SUVs now under recall. A rep for Tesla confirms that the car maker has issued a “proactive” recall of about 11,000 Model X vehicles produced between Oct. 28, 2016 and Aug. 16, 2017 after discovering the rear seats may contain a faulty locking mechanism. According to the carmaker, a faulty mechanism could prevent the middle rear seats from locking after they have been folded down and then returned to normal position.
