Reading now: 960

Tesla is recalling more than 1 million vehicles due to a power window defect that "may exert excessive force by pinching" a passenger before retracting, though in this case, a "recall" means fixing the problem via an over-the-air (OTA) software update.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration(Opens in a new window) (NHTSA), the automatic reversal system on certain Tesla model windows "may not react correctly after detecting an obstruction," increasing risk of injury.

The defect, reported early this week, potentially affects more than 1 million Tesla EVs, including certain 2017-2022 Model 3, 2020-2022 Model Y, and 2021-2022 Model S and Model X cars.

The OTA firmware update enhances "the calibration of the vehicle's automatic window reversal system behavior to ensure compliance" with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
