Recalls for 2014 Tesla Model S Base
2014 TESLA MODEL S
NHTSA Campaign ID: 15V780000
Component: SEAT BELTS:FRONT
Manufacturer: Tesla Motors, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 05/31/2012 - 11/12/2015
Potential Units Affected: 59415
Defect Description:
Tesla Motors, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain model year 2012-2015 Model S vehicles manufactured May 31, 2012, to November 12, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with driver or front passenger seat belts that may be improperly connected to the outboard lap pretensioner.
Consequence:
If the seat belt is not correctly attached to the pretensioner, it may not properly restrain the seat occupant in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.
Action to take:
Tesla will notify owners, and service centers will inspect the driver and front passenger seat belts, correcting their connection, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on December 14, 2015. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla's number for this recall is SB-15-20-002.
2014 TESLA MODEL S
NHTSA Campaign ID: 17V260000
Component: PARKING BRAKE
Manufacturer: Tesla Motors, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 07/12/2012 - 11/17/2016
Potential Units Affected: 31709
Defect Description:
Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain 2016 Model S and Model X vehicles. The electric parking brake calipers have an internal gear that may be improperly manufactured, possibly resulting in the gear fracturing during parking brake application or release.
Consequence:
If the gear breaks during parking brake release, the vehicle will not be able to be moved. If the gear breaks during parking brake application, the parking brake may not adequately hold the vehicle, potentially resulting in the vehicle rolling, increasing the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
Tesla will notify owners, and service centers will replace the electric parking brake calipers, free of charge. A remedy is currently unavailable. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed June 8, 2017. Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla's number for this recall is SB-17-33-002.
2014 TESLA MODEL S
NHTSA Campaign ID: 18V204000
Component: STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM
Manufacturer: Tesla, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 05/31/2012 - 04/09/2016
Potential Units Affected: 70421
Defect Description:
Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain 2012-2016 Tesla Model S vehicles equipped with Bosch steering racks. The aluminum bolts that attach the power steering gear assist motor to the gear housing may corrode and fracture causing a reduction or complete loss of power steering assist.
Consequence:
Loss of power steering assist would require a higher steering effort, especially at lower speeds, which may increase the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
Tesla will notify owners, and Tesla Service Centers will replace the steering gear mounting bolts and add a corrosion-preventative sealer, free of charge. The recall began May 7, 2019. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla's number for this recall is SB-18-32-002.
2014 TESLA MODEL S
NHTSA Campaign ID: 19V002000
Component: AIR BAGS:PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL
Manufacturer: Tesla, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 01/01/2014 - 12/09/2016
Potential Units Affected: 68673
Defect Description:
Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling all 2014-2016 Model S vehicles equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.
Consequence:
An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
Action to take:
Tesla will notify owners, and Tesla Service Centers will replace the passenger frontal air bag modules, free of charge. The recall began May 29, 2019. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla's number for this recall is SB-19-20-001.
