Tesla recalls Model X vehicles for seat fix

It should be noted that it already the second case when recall cars Tesla Model X problems with the seat.

The electric vehicle maker started taking reservations for its mass-market sedan in March 2016, which is priced at $35,000 (29,824 Euros) to start and is key to the company's plans to expand market share. This can prevent the left seat from locking in an upright position and allow the seat to slide forward during a crash.

Any affected owner can take their vehicle to a dealer or contact Tesla's mobile fix unit.

Only about 3% 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.

We are doing this out of an abundance of caution, because even though we have never seen it happen, 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.

Tesla says it's not aware of any reports of injuries from the issue, which was discovered during internal testing, the AP reports. There haven't been any reports of seat issues in the field.
