Tesla Motors Recalls 2,700 Model Xs
All cars made before March 26th
The Tesla Model X, the electric car company’s first SUV offering, has issued a voluntary recall for all cars produced before March 26th due to a risk of the third-row seats folding over in a crash, The Verge reports. The recall affects about 2,700 cars, and affected owners are supposed to be contact by their local Tesla service center to arrange free installation of new seats, a process Tesla says will take five weeks.
Though Tesla appears to be acting responsibly given the information at hand, the incident raises questions about the company’s ability to ship safe and reliable cars out of the gate, especially given the high pre-sales volumes of its new Model 3.
