Tesla Inc said it is recalling 3,470 2022 through 2023 Model Y vehicles in the United States because the fasteners that secure the second-row seats may not have been properly secured, according to a filing published in the Saturday.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says seat belt use can be reduced, increasing the risk of injury during a crash.
Tesla told the NHTSA that it has identified five warrants since December that may be related to these conditions. Tesla said it was not aware of any injuries or deaths that may be related to the recall.
Tesla will inspect the fasteners that secure the frames to the back of the second row driver’s seat and the lower seats and if necessary fasteners to the information.
In December, the Tesla company implemented improved controls along with improved training and supervision to make sure the buttons are attached to the information, the automaker said.
