A safety update notice has been posted on Tesla’s company website today, acknowledging a manufacturing problem with the electronic parking breaks used in Model S and Model X vehicles. Even with an expected total recall of 53,000 vehicles globally, it should be noted the recall is precautionary.
We do not believe this issue could ever lead to a safety concern for our customers, and we have not seen a single accident or injury relating to it. However, in order to be overly cautious, we are going to be proactively replacing these parts to ensure that no issues arise.
