PhotoTesla is recalling 4,582 model year 2016-2017 Model X vehicles.

The left-side, second row, reclining seat backs may not fully latch due to having incorrectly adjusted recliner mechanism cables.

Thus, these vehicles do not comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 207, "Seating Systems," and 210, "Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages."

If the seat back moves forward during a crash, occupants face an increased risk of injury.

Tesla will notify owners, and Tesla service technicians will correct the cable adjustment for the left-side, fold-flat, second row, seat recliner mechanism, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin in October 2017.

Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla's number for this recall is SB-17-13-004.
