Tesla announced a recall of 1.1 million vehicles because of an issue with the automatic window reversal system. The carmaker said that the software may not always detect an obstruction as the windows automatically roll up and could pinch the driver or passenger.
The recall includes 2017 to 2022 Model 3 sedans, 2020 and 2021 Model Y SUVs, Model S sedans, and 2021 and 2022 Model X SUVs.
Tesla has not received any warranty claims or reports of injuries due to the issue, which was discovered during routine product testing in August.
The electric vehicle maker said it will push out an over-the-air software update to fix the issue and will begin notifying owners on November 15. Vehicles that are currently in production have already received the software update.
