TESLA’S PARKING BRAKE RECALL

Tesla is recalling 53,000 Model S and Model X cars to fix a parking brake issue.

The electric car company’s largest ever global recall affects vehicles built between February and October 2016.

“The electric parking brakes installed on Model S and Model X vehicles built between February and October 2016 may contain a small gear that could have been manufactured improperly by our third-party supplier,” Tesla said in a statement on its website.

The car maker said there had been no accidents or injuries due to the issue. The company said it expected that less than 5 percent of the vehicles being recalled would be affected. Replacing the brakes would take less than 45 minutes.

Tesla last year recalled 2,700 Model X sport utility vehicles in the United States due to a faulty locking hinge in third-row seats.
