Another day, and another recall announcement! This time its the American electric sportscar maker, Tesla who is recalling 439 units of its Roadster 2.0 and 2.5 models to fix an issue with the 12-volt cable behind the front headlamps which apparently is improperly placed. This cable can cause a short, which eventually can result in it catching fire.
The cable in question supplies power for a number of vital objects such as lights and airbags. Since as Tesla has not a big network of dealer and service stations, they are planning to dispatch the repair teams to the homes or offices of owners. They will inspect the car and install a protective sleeve for that cable.
Tesla says that the main battery pack, consisting of over 6,800 units of laptop batteries, or the power system are not affected by the problem.
