Tesla recalls model year 2016 Model X vehicles

Pieces of roof trim may separate from the vehicle

Tesla is recalling 9,136 model year 2016 Model X vehicles.

The front and spine cosmetic roof trim may have been adhered to the vehicle without first using primer. As a result, one or both pieces of trim may separate from the vehicle while it's moving.

Trim that separates from the vehicle during use can cause a road hazard and increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Tesla will notify owners, and dealers will test the roof trim adhesion, and -- as necessary-- apply primer free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification.

Owners may contact Tesla customer service at (877) 798-3752. Tesla's number for this recall is SB-20-12-005.
