Tesla is recalling 53000 cars over faulty parking brakes

A small gear built by one of the company's third-party suppliers is to blame, and Tesla figures less than five percent of the 53,000 recalled vehicles might have the part - but better safe than sorry.

Tesla shares fell 1% to settle at $302.51 in NY following the recall disclosure.

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

Tesla, in a statement to owners, said, "Tesla recently discovered a potential manufacturing issue with electric parking brakes installed on certain Model S and Model X vehicles that could prevent the parking brake from releasing". The company has said that the recall will include a routine replacement of the brake system.

While Tesla is gearing out to start the production of its first widely affordable electric auto, Model 3, from July this year, some really displeased Tesla vehicles owners have filed a complaint in the US District Court in San Jose, against the Elon Musk's unconventional automaker.

"If the gear were to break, the parking brake would continue to keep the auto form moving, but the parking brake would then be stuck in place".

The recall report comes as Tesla is gearing up to manufacturer the Model S, with production expected to begin in July.

Still, some immigration experts say the new visa requirements will have little overall impact on immigration levels in Australia. As soon as the announcement came regarding the end of 457 work visa , reactions started coming in, from Australian startups.

Regular brakes aren't affected by the problem.

The recall equates to roughly two-thirds of the 84,000 vehicles Tesla manufactured previous year.

What effect that may have on waiting times for service calls remains to be determined.

In a study earlier this year of safety complaints against automakers, auto data and research company iSeeCars.com reported that Tesla ranked third, behind only Jeep and Chrysler, as receiving the most safety complaints of any auto brand. It recalled 90,000 Model S cars in November 2015 because of a report of a seat belt not being properly connected. A spokeswoman from the supplier told AFR in an email that it is now working with Tesla to resolve the issue.

The problem is likely to occur in less than 5% of the vehicles being recalled (about 2% according to The Next Web) but in the name of safety, Tesla is recalling them all.

Tesla's stock lost about 1% in Thursday's trading session, closing at $302.51 in a 52-week range of $178.19 to $313.73.
