Tesla recalls 11000 Tesla Model X SUVs

Tesla recalls 11000 Tesla Model X SUVs

That presents a safety issue, as the seat would fold forwards and provide zero protection during a crash.

"Until then, there is no issue with continuing to drive your Model X", the Tesla spokesperson said.

Tesla has announced plans to recall roughly 11,000 Model X SUVs worldwide due to an issue with the rear seats, which could potentially fail to lock into place, according to the Associated Press. It should be noted that Tesla has not received any reports of this happening in customer cars - it discovered the problem during internal testing.

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) Receives "Hold" Rating from Stifel Nicolaus
Cullinan Associates Inc increased American Electric Power (NYSE:AEP) stake by 7,800 shares to 23,600 valued at $1.64M in 2017Q2. At the close of regular trading, its last week's stock price volatility was 1.39% which for the month reaches 1.99%.

Tesla recalls tend to be voluntary, and its latest is no exception. The automaker recalled 2,700 Model X vehicles in April 2016 because the third-row seats could move if there were an accident. We are doing this out of an abundance of caution, because even though we have never seen it happen, if the cable is not properly adjusted, the seat back on the left side of the second row seats could move forward during a crash.

All that's needed to fix the seats is readjusting the cables, a repair Tesla says will take about 10 minutes.

The recall affects any Tesla Model X with fold-flat second row seats that were produced between October 28, 2016, and August 16, 2017, the AP reports. Unlike the Model S and Model X, which are luxury cars made for profit margin not volume, Tesla is planning on churning out hundreds of thousands of Model 3s to work through its massive pre-order backlog. Child seats are still fine to use, as the LATCH system connects to the seat's base and not its back, and you can still put one adult or two children in those seats without concern.
