Tesla Motors has recalled 90,000 units of Model S sedans worldwide over a possible defect in the front seat belt assemblies.
Tesla has got in touch with the owners of the battery-powered luxury sedan requesting them to bring their cars to any of the company's 125 Tesla service centres for inspection of a bolt that attaches the seat belt mechanism to the body of the car, reported Reuters. If necessary, Tesla may also send service technicians to customers.
Most of the vehicles affected are in the United States, while a few are in Asia and Europe. The company maintained that there haven't been any report of accidents or injuries due to the suspected issue. The issue came into notice in early November when a seatbelt assembly broke in Europe on the road, after a customer in the front passenger seat of a Model S turned to talk to a passenger in the rear seat.
This is not the first time; the Tesla Model S sedan is called to back to the workshop. Tesla had earlier recalled 29,222 model S sedans over a charging defect.
