Tesla Model X Car Accidents

Tesla’s luxury midsize Model X turns a lot of heads with its falcon wing doors. Since debuting in the third quarter of 2015, the model has topped 100,000 sales despite a hefty $80-100k price tag. In 2017, it was the world’s seventh-best-selling plug-in electric car. That same year, Forbes named the Model X 100D its Best Vehicle of the Year. It’s hard to argue given that the Model X can travel 328 miles (Long Range) without recharging.

Along with all the awards and attention, though, Tesla’s vehicles also generate plenty of controversy. The Model X, like other Teslas, is outfitted with the self-driving software called Autopilot. Teslas with Autopilot have been involved in several fatal crashes over the past few years, leading some to wonder if they should be on the road at all.

  • Tesla Model X Recalls

    In just the first few years of its existence, the Model X racked up several recalls that painted a troubling portrait for consumers:

    • In April 2016, Tesla recalled 2,700 Model X cars because the company found that in a crash, third-row seats would unlatch, posing a safety risk.
    • In April 2017, Tesla recalled 53,000 Model X and Model S cars because of faulty parking brakes. This recall affected over half the Model X and Model S vehicles sold in 2016.
    • In October 2017, Tesla recalled 11,000 Model X sport utility vehicles (SUVs) due to a faulty rear seat locking mechanism.

    Though each individual recall does not spell doom for drivers, collectively they suggest that Tesla may not have conducted sufficient safety testing on all its vehicles before they hit the market. If the company had, why would it then need to recall more than 66,000 cars?

  • Model X Accidents

    Recalls are not the only cause for concern. The Model X has already been involved in several serious crashes, at least one of them fatal:

    • On February 18, 2019, in Fremon, California, a Model X SUV smashed into a tree and caught fire. Incredibly, the driver suffered only minor injuries.
    • That same month, a Model X SUV in Brunswick, New Jersey veered off Route 1 and plowed through several street signs and bushes. The car’s driver, Eric Carters, said the car “would not let him” retake control of the vehicle.
    • On March 23, 2018, on Route 101 in California, a Tesla Model X P100D collided with a safety barrier and caught fire. The driver, Wei Lun Huang, died from injuries sustained in the crash. His family later sued Tesla, alleging that the Autopilot software was to blame for Huang’s death.

Morgan and Morgan is truly the best law firm! PERIOD! You could consider yourself blessed when they take your case. Immediately, you can breathe. Anxiety goes from a 10 to 0! I needed them 3 TIMES! I wish I didn’t have to hire an attorney but my family and I were blessed. We won every single time! Insurance companies truly know that they will take it to court! I got settlements for all 3 lawsuits. Never stepped a foot into a courtroom. Thank you so much Morgan & Morgan!
