According to a company letter filed with regulators, electric vehicle maker Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has recalled close to 30,000 model X vehicles after an issue was found that may cause the front passenger airbag to deploy incorrectly.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Association said in a letter dated Nov. 17 that calibration of a restraint control module, or a set of sensors, may cause the front passenger air bag to deploy incorrectly during some low-speed crashes.

Tesla announced that the problem would be fixed through an over-the-air software update.

Earlier this month, the automaker recalled over 40,000 Model S and Model X vehicles due to the risk of experiencing a loss of power steering assist when driving on rough roads or after hitting a pothole.

Shares of TSLA are up 1.14% in pre-market trading on Friday.
