2013 Tesla Model S Recalled, But You Don't Have To Take It In For Repairs

Tesla Motors has issued a recall for the all-electric 2013 Model S sedan. That's the bad news. The good news is that owners won't have to take their cars to mechanics for repairs. Welcome to the 21st century. According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Tesla recall affects 29,222 Model S sedans "equipped for, and delivered with, certain NEMA 14-50 (240 volt) Universal Mobile Connector (UMC) adapters". An investigation proved that in certain circumstances, that adapter, the charging cable connected to it, or the nearby electrical outlet can overheat while the Model S is charging. And that, in turn, increases the risk of burn injuries to owners, or even a fire.
