Tesla recalls 53000 of its Model S Model X cars due to a breaking system fault

Tesla recalls 53,000 of its Model S & Model X cars due to a breaking system fault

Tesla has voluntarily recalled 53,000 of its Model S and Model X EV cars due to a fault being discovered with the braking system used in both cars.

The recall affects cars which were built from February to October 2016.

The fault can cause the parking brake to lock which can prevent the car from moving.

While Tesla have said they want to test all of the vehicles, they believe that those infected will be less than 5%.

Recalls in the motor market are reasonably common, with Tesla not being a stranger to the practice. In April 2016, Tesla had to recall 2,700 Model X cars due to a faulty locking hinge in the 3rd row seats. They were also forced to recall their entire Model S fleet in November 2015 due to a faulty seatbelt.
