Tesla recalling all Model S vehicles due to faulty seat belt

Telsa is recalling 90,000 Model S cars in response to a complaint on its front seat belt.

On Friday, in an email to customers, Tesla said it had recently found that a Model S in Europe which had the front seat belt which was not connected properly to the pretensioner on the outboard lap.

No one has been injured, and there haven't been any other reports - the recall is simply the result of the company being rather proactive with regards to potential safety matters.

Affected owners - meaning everyone who owns a Model S - are now being advised to visit a Tesla service center to have the seatbelts inspected, while the automaker may dispatch mobile teams to owners who live too far from a service center.

Tesla's vice president for business development added that the lone confirmed incident might not have necessitated a recall, but that the decision-making in the company was not driven that way.
