Tesla recalls nearly 1.1 million vehicles in U.S. for fingers pinched in windows

Tesla is recalling nearly 1.1 million vehicles in the U.S. for catching people’s fingers when the windows were rolled up.

Tesla said in documents released Thursday by U.S. safety regulators that the automatic window-rolling system may not react properly after detecting an obstacle.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it violated federal safety standards for power windows. Tesla said an online software update will fix the problem.

The recall covers some Model 3 sedans from 2017 to 2022 and some Model Y SUVs from 2020 and 2021. Also includes some Model S sedans and Model X SUVs for 2021 and 2022.

Tesla discovered the problem during production testing in August. Beginning November 15, owners will be notified by letter. The company said in the filing that the vehicles in production will be updated starting Sept. 13.

As of Sept. 16, Tesla was not aware of any warranty claims or injuries resulting from the issue, documents show.
