The recall involves vehicles with fold-flat second-row seats made between Oct. 28, 2016, and Aug. 16, 2017. Tesla said it believes that only about 3% of the recalled vehicles have the issue.
Tesla said some cables in the seat may have been improperly tightened, which prevents the left seat from locking in an upright position. If it's not properly locked, it could move forward during a crash.
The Palo Alto, Calif., automaker — whose chief executive is Elon Musk — said it has seen no reports of injuries from the issue, which was discovered during internal testing.
