Tesla Recalls 53,000 Cars After Brake Malfunction

Share this article:

Some recalls are voluntary, which means the automaker issues them without being compelled by the government to do so. Tesla’s latest recall is one of those. Tesla issued a voluntary recall for approximately 53,000 examples of the Model S hatchback and the Model Xcrossover. About 31,000 of those are located in the US, and all affected vehicles carry build dates between February and October 2016. The problem lies with the electric parking brakes that help secure the vehicles when placed in Park. Tesla estimates that about 2 percent of the vehicles recalled contain the improperly manufactured gear. It should be noted that the parking brake assembly is from a third-party supplier, as well.
