Tesla recalls 53,000 cars over brake issue – BBC News

Tesla has issued a voluntary global recall for some of its Model S and Model X cars to fix a problem with the parking brake.The electric car maker said about 2% of the 53,000 vehicles built from February to October 2016 were affected, but all of those cars are being recalled.The company added it had no reports of accidents or injuries relating to the brake issue.In US trading, Tesla shares closed down 1% at $302.51.In a statement the firm said the electric parking brakes installed on Model S and Model X ”may contain a small gear that could have been manufactured improperly by our third-party supplier”.If the gear were to break, the parking brake would continue to keep the car from moving, but the parking brake would be stuck in place, it added.Tesla said there had been no reports of parking brake failure, and said it was ”safe to continue regular use of your vehicle.”
