Tesla has launched its largest recall ever over an issue with the seat belts in its Model S sedan after one driver noticed her seat belt unexpectedly became unbuckled.

The recall, which affects 90,000 vehicles, was issued after a European customer reported two weeks ago reported that her seat belt had come unfastened as she turned to talk to passengers in the back seat, the Associated Press reports. The company said the seat belt anchors likely weren’t bolted together correctly. That customer was not injured, and her car has been repaired.

The company is asking all drivers to have their vehicles inspected at the nearest Tesla service center. Tesla’s other vehicles, the Model X SUV and the Roadster, are unaffected. The company emphasized the recall was voluntary and not at the request of federal regulators.
