Tesla to recall 11000 Model X SUVs

SAN FRANCISCO-Tesla Inc.is recalling about 11,000 Model X sport utility vehicles due to possible issues with their second-row fold-flat seats.

Tesla says that it hasn't had any reports of issues relating to the seat problem, but will be conducting a voluntary recall. What that means is that when you raise the seatbacks from the fold-flat position, the left-side seat might not lock securely in place. The automaker says it has seen no reports of injuries from the issue, which was discovered during internal testing.

To conduct the repairs, the company is deploying its mobile fix service - though customers can still elect to take the vehicle to their local service centre. Tesla stock has outperformed during the current year as investors are confident that the company would make strong sales for Model 3.

Tesla is taking a proactive action to ensure the safety of some of Model X owners who may need an adjustment to their second row seat.

It's important to stress that this recall is voluntary, and that means it can't be too serious.

The recall affects Model X units produced from 28 October 2016 through 16 August 2017.
