Tesla Inc. is recalling approximately 4,600 of its 2016 and 2017 Model X all-electric crossover SUVs over a potential latch problem with the reclining cables on the second-row seat on the left side of the vehicle.

It’s possible the reclining, fold-flat seat backs could fail to properly latch due to incorrectly adjusted recliner mechanism cables. If the seat back moved forward in a crash, it could increase the risk of an injury.

Tesla will notify owners of affected vehicles directly. If a problem is found, Tesla technicians will correct the reclining cable issue free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin this month.
