Tesla To Recall 2,700 Model X SUVs For Seat Problem

Tesla announced it will recall 2,700 Model X SUVs in the United States due to a faulty locking hinge in the third row seats which increases the risk the seats could fall forward during a crash. The recall affects all Model X SUVs built before March 26, 2016 and is the first recall for the Model X since Tesla began deliveries of the luxury electric SUV in September. The recall was announced after the seats failed a strength test in the European Union. Tesla had previously performed 15 tests in the United States in which the seats passed. The EU test was different and more stringent, the company said. Tesla has acknowledged various production issues over the first few months of the Model X due to technical challenges with its “falcon-wing” doors, a panoramic windshield and moveable seats.

Tesla will begin notifying customers of the recall during the week of April 18, 2016. The repair, which will replace both third-row seats, will take about two hours. However, the process to fix all recalled cars will take about five weeks. Tesla stated that the seats have not failed during any customer use.
