Tesla's shares were little changed at $355.64 in extended trading on Thursday.
Though Tesla says it is informing affected Model X owners of the recall now, there is currently no information about the defect in NHTSA's SaferCar.gov database. In April 2016, around 2,700 vehicles were recalled because the carmaker said testing had revealed that the third row could slide forward during a crash.
Manufacturers' Monthly was informed by a Tesla spokesperson that letters have been issued to Australian owners of the SUVs about the recall order.
The company added that it can address all of the needed repairs with its mobile fix service. In an email to customers, Tesla said the left back seat may not be able to lock properly in the upright position due to cables that were tightened too much.
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. We can address 100% of these repairs via mobile service, and you will have the choice to do that or to bring in your vehicle to a Service Center. In the spring of a year ago it recalled 2,700 Model X SUVS because of locking hinge in the third-row seats that didn't work. We will be contacting you soon to schedule this according to your preference. The voluntary recall involves Model X SUVs manufactured between October 28, 2016 and August 16, 2017. There haven't been any reports of seat issues in the field. The issue was discovered during an internal testing.
