Tesla is recalling approximately 11,000 Model X SUVs to address an issue with their seats.
This is the second time Tesla has issued a recall for its Model X SUVs due to problems with the seats' latch.
The problem affects Model X vehicles manufactured between October 28, 2016, and September 1, 2017, equipped with a second-row seat that folds down flat. 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.
Palo Alto, California-based Tesla said it would begin alerting customers to the issue Thursday.

Sports teams are staying away from Trump hotels
While NFL teams typically don't stay at luxury hotels like Trump's due to their massive teams and support staff, other teams do. In all, The Post found that 17 teams from across the four major sports had stayed at Trump properties in recent years.
Tesla said it can make the adjustment using its mobile service vans so that customers don't have to take the SUV into a service center. At this point, Tesla has not mentioned what could have caused the manufacturing fault. Investors' main concern with Tesla's overall plan is how quickly the company is ramping up production, without all the layers of testing that conventional automakers go through on vehicles.
"Until then, there is no issue with continuing to drive your Model X", Tesla wrote in the email. Tesla Model X owners can take their vehicle to a dealer for repairs or reach out to Tesla's mobile fix units.
Things are just going to get worse with the production ramp-up of the Model 3. Reports have already emerged that parts of the Model 3 are still being made by hand, and although Tesla's hit back at those accusations, it's still struggling to get cars out the door in a timely fashion.
