Tesla Motors has announced recall of 11,000 Model X vehicles to fix a seat cable issue.

Palo Alto, California-based Tesla had recalled 2,700 Model X SUVs in the United States in April 2016 due to a faulty locking hinge in the third-row seats.

The electric auto maker emailed Tesla customers on Thursday regarding the recall, stating that "a small number of cables in the second row fold-flat seats" may need to be adjusted. If improperly installed, the latch may not properly engage the seat, causing it and passengers seated into it to dislodge from the vehicle during a crash.

According to Tesla, it has not seen reports of injuries from the issue which was discovered during internal testing.

Owners of impacted units will be notified by Tesla.

The recall affects Tesla Model X vehicles across the globe, and if your auto is on the list then you should have already been notified by the firm - if not you might need to check your spam folder and missed calls list, just to be sure.

Bad news for Tesla Model X owners: you might have to spend a little time without your auto. Note that this issue only affects Model X with fold-flat second row seats built between October 28, 2016 and August 16, 2017 and does not affect any vehicles with monopost seats. Owners can stake their cars to a Tesla Service Center if they prefer. Any of Tesla's SUVs with single-post seats aren't affected.

The automaker began informing customers about the recall Thursday. Tesla informed that as per their estimate, only 3 percent of recalled vehicles have an issue with the seat cable.
