  • Tesla Model X recall 2017 seat issue

According to the Tesla, the company had determined that a small number of cables in the second row fold-flat seats in "some" 2016 and 2017 SUVs may need readjustments.

Model X is Tesla's crossover EV that first started being delivered to customers in September 2105 after an initial delay of about three months.

Though Tesla says it is informing affected Model X owners of the recall now, there is currently no information about the defect in NHTSA's SaferCar.gov database. If this occurs, the seat could move forward during a crash, the automaker said. Tesla added that only 3 percent of vehicles he would recall had such a problem. Owners can stake their cars to a Tesla Service Center if they prefer. As it has in the past, the company says the voluntarily recall is being "out of an abundance of caution". This can prevent the left seat from locking in an upright position and allow the seat to slide forward during a crash.


National Road Traffic Security Administration, Tesla Model X has achieved good grades in independently conducted security tests, but test result indicated that some cables in rear seats should be adjusted.

Our records show that you own a Model X affected by this voluntary recall. Tesla's going to use mobile fix services for this job. There haven't been any reports of seat issues in the field.

The Palo Alto, Calif. -based company started informing customers via email about the recall which covers Model X SUVs that have a fold flat down row of back seats and were produced from October 28, 2016, to August 16 of 2017.
