Tesla recalls 11000 Model X over faulty rear seats

13 October 2017

San Francisco: Tesla Inc.is recalling about 11,000 Model X sport utility vehicles due to possible issues with their second-row fold-flat seats. In April 2016, around 2,700 vehicles were recalled because the carmaker said testing had revealed that the third row could slide forward during a crash.

Tesla says it has no reports of any injuries arising from the issue, and says it found the problem during internal testing.

Six people taken to hospital after attempted prison escape in NC
Police are responding to an escape attempt at Pasquotank Correctional Institution that left several prison employees injured. Elizabeth City is about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Norfolk, Virginia, and near North Carolina's Outer Banks.

The Elon Musk-founded automaker says that the Model X problem is the result of cables within the seat that have not been properly tightened.

We are emailing to inform you of a proactive action Tesla is taking to ensure your safety as a Model X owner. Tesla has promised to make all changes with the help of mobile vans, which will be home of the owner of the Model X. Any of Tesla's SUVs with single-post seats aren't affected. This can prevent the left seat from locking in an upright position and allow the seat to slide forward during a crash. Until then, the company suggests not stacking two adults in the center and behind-driver seats in the second row.
