Tesla to recall 11,000 Model X SUVs due to seat issue

From Reuters - October 12, 2017

(Reuters) - Electric carmaker Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) is recalling 11,000 Model X sport utility vehicles worldwide due to a faulty locking mechanism in their rear seats that raises the risk of the seats falling forward in a crash.

Tesla said on Thursday a small number of cables in the second row fold-flat seats in some Model X vehicles, manufactured between October 28, 2016 and August 16, 2017, may need to be adjusted to fix the issue.

The company, which is led by Elon Musk, said about 3 percent of the recalled vehicles may have the issue, which was detected during internal testing.

Tesla said it had not received reports of any issues or accidents related to the problem.
