The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the bolts securing the second-row seatback may not be tightened, and that could cause greater injury in a crash. No injuries or deaths have been reported due to the issue, but Tesla says they’ve identified five warranty claims since December that may be related to the problem.

Tesla will inspect the bolts and tighten them to specifications if necessary.

In addition, a Tesla supplier has improved training and supervision to make sure the bolts are torqued to specifications.
