Tesla recalling 11000 Model X SUVs for seat issue

Tesla To Voluntarily Recall 11000 Model X Vehicles Over Seat Cables That Could Break During A Crash

"Although Tesla has not received reports of any issues or accidents relating to this condition, we will be conducting a voluntary recall to inspect the affected vehicles and confirm whether any adjustment is needed", the company told CNBC.

This isn't the first recall Tesla has engaged in during the past few years.

Tesla has started to inform Model X owners about the recall, and they can contact Tesla's mobile fix units or visit a dealer to get the issue fixed. That could result in the seat moving forward in the event of a crash, posing a potential safety issue.

Only about 3 per cent 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.

In the meantime, Tesla has advised owners against having two adults sitting in the middle and left rear seats at the same time.

Hamas and Fatah compromise
Hamas Chief, Ismail Haniyeh, said that "an agreement was reached today between Hamas and Fatah under Egyptian sponsorship". One of the key sticking points will be the fate of Hamas's 25,000-strong military wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.

Barcelona set sights back on Philippe Coutinho
Grau added: "The most important thing is the demands from the management, and we will do everything possible to meet them". "We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market, or any player the technical staff request", Grau said.

It said cables in the seat may not have been tightened properly, preventing the left seat from locking in an upright position. Customers can choose to use the mobile service or to visit a service center, but either way, no new parts are necessary. Tesla has had larger, more important recalls in the past, with some to do with seatbelt defects, and they've affected far larger numbers, too.

The recall affects Model X units produced from 28 October 2016 through 16 August 2017. There haven't been any reports of seat issues in the field.

"Until then, there is no issue with continuing to drive your Model X", Tesla wrote in the email.

Thank you for being a Tesla customer and we apologise for this inconvenience.
