  • Tesla Model X

Tesla has announced that it's voluntarily recalling 11,000 Model X SUVs worldwide, because the rear row of seats might not lock into place in the event of a crash.

The electric auto maker emailed Tesla customers on Thursday regarding the recall, stating that "a small number of cables in the second row fold-flat seats" may need to be adjusted. Tesla says that only 3% of the recalled vehicles are affected by the issue.

It said cables in the seat may not have been tightened properly, preventing the left seat from locking in an upright position. If someone were sitting in that unlocked seat, and there was an accident, it's possible they could be injured.

Only about 3 per cent of the electric SUVs being recalled are expected to have issues, which the carmaker said it can correct in about 10 minutes with its mobile service operators.

According to Tesla, that recall was initiated after the seats failed a strength test in the European Union.

The voluntary recall comes at a time when investors and Wall Street seem divided about the prospects for the green automaker. Tesla's going to use mobile fix services for this job. In the spring of a year ago it recalled 2,700 Model X SUVS because of locking hinge in the third-row seats that didn't work.

The Palo Alto, Calif. -based company started informing customers via email about the recall which covers Model X SUVs that have a fold flat down row of back seats and were produced from October 28, 2016, to August 16 of 2017.

However, since the release of the Model S, Tesla has been cricitised for issues with build quality and general quality control.
