Tesla, the electronic and hybrid car manufacturer is known for its quality. The founder Elon Musk has always given the best to the consumers. Though the product rates are priced high, Tesla has always delivered in quality without compromise coupled with safety. Yesterday’s news came as a shocker for many including the auto enthusiasts.
Model S and X vehicles built from February 2016 through October 2016 were recalled by Tesla and the estimated figures are anywhere up to 53,000 vehicles out of which 31,000 are in US alone where a manufacturing issue means that the parking brake may not function properly.
Affected vehicles will be fixed free of charge as per the statement issued by the company though the timeline to complete all the fixes is rather long with Tesla saying it could be October 2017 before it has the necessary parts to correct the issue on all of the affected Model S & X electric vehicles. The estimated number of vehicles that might have been affected would be around 2% , Tesla said.
Owners will be contacted via e-mail and snail mail.
