Component(s): PARKING BRAKE 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 31,472 

APRIL 2017 -- 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. 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. 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. Tesla's number for this recall is SB-17-33-002. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

JANUARY 2017 -- Tesla Motors, Inc.

An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death. Tesla will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger air bag, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2017.
