The recall affects Tesla Model X vehicles that were equipped with fold-flat second-row seats, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Only 3% of the recalled vehicles have the issue, said Tesla.

The company informed that some seat cables have been improperly tightened and this could prevent the seat from locking in an upright position. The issue is a minor one that can be fixed in about 10 minutes and has to do with seat cables in the second row. The automaker says it has seen no reports of injuries from the issue, which was discovered during internal testing. Owners can take their Model X to a dealer for repairs or contact Tesla's mobile fix units. The company estimates that only around three percent of 2016 and 2017 Model X vehicles could suffer from the problem.

Tesla's shares were little changed at $355.64 in extended trading on Thursday.

Tesla is taking a proactive action to ensure the safety of some of Model X owners who may need an adjustment to their second row seat. This is why company started to recall tools.
