Tesla is recalling its Model S all-electric sedan in Australia due to a potential problem with the front seat belts.

The EV-maker has identified an issue with the front seat belt whereby the outboard lap pre-tensioner may not be properly connected.

In the event of a collision, the pre-tensioner may not be able to perform to its maximum capability.

This may increase the risk of injury for front seat passengers.

Mitsubishi is recalling its 2016 model-year MQ Triton pickups, fitted with one of two genuine accessory tow bar kits.

The kit part numbers are MZ350452 and MZ350552, and the vehicles in question were sold between May and September of this year.

The Compliance Label on the tow bars does not comply with Australian Standards or Australian Design Rules requirements, and the data on the label does not match Mitsubishi’s specifications for the Triton.

Mitsubishi is concerned that this may lead to confusion for owners, who may unknowingly exceed the maximum tow ratings while using the tow bar.

Tesla Australia and Mitsubishi will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
