Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator May Rupture


An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 17V023000

Remedy

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. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752.
