Faulty Parking Brakes Lead Tesla to Recall 53000 Vehicles

Faulty Parking Brakes Lead Tesla to Recall 53000 Vehicles

A defective third-party supplied part could have been "manufactured improperly" and, if the part were to break, the brake would still work but would be stuck in place.

The Tesla supercharger is the USA -based electric vehicle maker's high-speed device that can charge more than 50 percent of its Model S 90D's battery in 20 minutes.

"We are working with Tesla to ensure the issue is resolved quickly", a spokeswoman reportedly said.

Customers who bought the said models manufactured from February to October previous year will be sent an official recall notice by mail.

Tesla has said it will be contacting customers who may have been affected and advising them on how they can have their vehicle repaired.

Of the 53,000 vehicles involved in the recall, Tesla expects less than 5% of those to be affected by the defective part. The company said the cars are safe to drive until the parking brake is replaced.

Tesla (TSLA) will open its first showroom in Ireland next week, almost five months after the company began taking orders for the Model S and Model X in the country. The vehicles affected were built between February and October of 2016, and 31,000 of them were sold in the U.S.

Replacing both parts on the car's parking-brake assembly takes less than an hour.

"Service capacity will not be an issue", a Tesla spokeswoman said in an email, noting that the mobile technicians will be able to handle the fix.

To see full details on the current recall, Tesla owners can visit the company's Recall Information page.
