Tesla recalls thousands of electric vehicles for possible problems with seat belts

Tesla recalls thousands of electric vehicles for possible problems with seat belts

Tesla reported that it has issued recovery orders for about five thousand units of its Model 3 and Model Y to verify that a problem with the internal seat belts of these units is possible. The affected Model 3 units were manufactured between 2018 and 2020, with suspected Model Y units between 2019 and 2021.

U.S. media outlets, citing data provided by the country’s Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), have reported that the problem is with loose-fitting seat belt fasteners. The shoulder belt should fit snugly in column B of the car so that it can function properly.

Tesla sent a note to China in the past for a similar reason. This covered hundreds of units that were inspected and, if necessary, repaired or replaced.

Fortunately, there have been no accidents anywhere as a result of this possible failure of seat belts, but it does occur at an inappropriate time for a California company that is dealing with heat due to quality control issues.

Reminder requests are common all over the world and now car manufacturers are actively involved in these measures. But it takes great success in customer trust, something that Tesla has traditionally highlighted. But in recent times many have complained about quality issues – while some are small while others are quite important, which could damage the image of EV Maker.

Tesla remains the leader, and quite far, in terms of the global EV market, but they are threatening to capture rivals. Companies like Volkswagen, Mercedes, Renault, Hyundai, Kia and Toyota plan to launch or run vehicles with a battery.
