The seat back on the left side of the second-row seats could move forward during a crash.
Tesla is recalling 11,000 examples of the Model X to fix an issue with the second-row seats. The company will begin notifying owners of affected cars in the coming days.
The issue only affects vehicles built between October 28th of last year and September 1st of this year, according to Automotive News. The company explains the defective crossovers are equipped with seat cables that could be improperly adjusted.
"Although we have never seen any evidence of it in the field, internal testing has indicated that if the cable is not properly adjusted, the seat back on the left side of the second-row seats could move forward during a crash," the company said in a statement. It emphasized the recall is voluntary, and that it's not aware of any injuries or accidents related to the defect.
Tesla expects only three percent of the cars affected by the recall will need to be repaired. The good news is that adjusting the seat cable is a 10-minute job performed by mobile service operators, so owners don't need to take their car into the nearest service center.
