In its official statement, Tesla said, "During recent internal testing, Tesla determined that a small number of cables in the second row fold-flat seats in some 2016 and 2017 Model X vehicles may need to be adjusted".

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

The company started to inform customers about the recall on Thursday.

Versions of the vehicle manufactured between October 28, 2016 and August 16, 2017 could be affected with the issue that could see the rear seats move forward during an accident. Tesla added that only 3 percent of vehicles he would recall had such a problem.

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.

National Road Traffic Security Administration, Tesla Model X has achieved good grades in independently conducted security tests, but test result indicated that some cables in rear seats should be adjusted.

The voluntary recall comes at a time when investors and Wall Street seem divided about the prospects for the green automaker. Customers can choose to use the mobile service or to visit a service center, but either way, no new parts are necessary.

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

The recall involves vehicles with fold-flat second row seats made between October 28, 2016, and August 16, 2017. There haven't been any reports of seat issues in the field.
