Tesla Recalls 53000 Cars For Parking Brake Issues

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.

"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.
