Tesla Inc.is recalling 11,000 Model X SUVs worldwide because their rear seats might not lock into place.

The company added that only around three percent of the recalled vehicles may have the issue.

The issue was originally found during internal testing and Tesla has not received reports of any issues or accidents related to the problem.

Tesla has sent letters to its customers who buy a brand auto Model X, putting fault that must be corrected.

Ltd. Sells 71115 Shares of Cabot Oil & Gas Co. (COG)
TheStreet lowered shares of Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation from a "c" rating to a "d+" rating in a report on Thursday, August 24th. Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation has a beta of 0.32, offering the possibility of a higher rate of return, but also posing more risk.

The company also said that it can attend to all the needed repairs with its mobile fix service and owners can send their vehicle to the nearest Tesla Service Centre if they choose to do so.

The problem, which was discovered in internal testing, involves incorrectly adjusted seat cables. Unlike the Model S and Model X, which are luxury cars made for profit margin not volume, Tesla is planning on churning out hundreds of thousands of Model 3s to work through its massive pre-order backlog.

The AP reports that the issue is due to a cable in the seat not being tightened correctly, which prevents the left seat from locking in the upright position.

Our records show that you own a Model X affected by this voluntary recall. Until then, the company suggests not stacking two adults in the center and behind-driver seats in the second row.
