Owners of affected cars will soon receive a second email officially notifying them of the recall and explaining how they can go about scheduling an appointment at their local Tesla garage.

Tesla is working closely with its supplier to get replacement parts. Tesla said the small gear has no impact on the car's regular braking system.

Tesla said only a small percentage-less than 5 percent-of gears built during the period may have been manufactured improperly. Meanwhile, you can continue using the vehicle normally.

Tesla said it hasn't seen "a single accident or injury" relating to the brake issue, and there have been no reports of the system failing to hold a parked vehicle or stop a vehicle in an emergency.

Luxury electric auto maker Tesla has issued a voluntary recall for 53 thousand of its Model S and Model X vehicles due to a faulty gear in the electric parking brakes.

If that gear were to break, the parking brake could become stuck in place, the company said. But Tesla adds that, is "in order to be cautious" it is acting proactive I replacing the parts to head off any potential issues.

"Tesla found the electric parking brakes installed on its electric vehicles were produced between February and October 16 and 'may contain a small gear that could have been manufactured improperly" by its third-party supplier.

Tesla Inc. was sued by vehicle owners over claims its Autopilot feature is "dangerously defective" when engaged. As a new company, all this will count strongly in building its public image.
