Tesla's voluntary recall to inspect the cars' seat belts, in the long run, is actually a good thing. And from a PR angle, it reaffirms just how dedicated the company is to taking care of its customers and its vehicles. (Video via Tesla Motors)

Despite good intentions, though, Tesla's stock is taking a bit of a hit after the news.

Stocks fell nearly 5 percent before 1 p.m. EST.
