Shares of Tesla (TSLA) were lower in after-hours trading on Thursday after the electric automaker issued a voluntary recall of Model X vehicles.

Tesla will recall 11,000 Model X SUVs around the world over a problem with their rear seats. The recall covers vehicles with fold-flat second-row seating produced between October between Oct. 28, 2016, and Aug. 16, 2017.

The seats may have been improperly tightened, thus preventing them from locking in an upright position. If the seats are not adequately secured, it may move forward in the event of a crash.

Tesla has yet to receive any reports of injuries caused by the issue.

The automaker thinks that only around 3% of the recalled cars have the issue. Owners can take their Model X's to a dealer or contact Tesla's mobile repair units to repair the problem.
