Tesla to recall more than a million vehicles over pinchy windows

More than a million Tesla owners will have to deal with another recall notice in the coming weeks. On Tuesday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration filed a safety recall notice for numerous newer vehicle models across the electric vehicle maker’s lineup because “the automatic window reversing system may not respond properly after detecting an obstacle,” and as such, “a closing window may be practicing.” Avoid using excessive force by pinching a driver or passenger prior to entry, increasing the risk of injury,” the statement said.

The following models and years are affected: 2017-22 Model 3s and 2020-21 Model Y, X and S vehicles. Tesla has until mid-November to contact affected owners and plans to release an OTA software update to fix the issue.

Per the Associated PressTesla first identified the issues during product testing in August and has installed the update in newly built vehicles since September 13. However, several Twitter users have reacted to Tuesday’s announcement, noting that their vehicles have been experiencing near-identical issues since at least 2021.

This is a far cry from Tesla’s first safety recall. In the last two years alone, Teslas have been recalled for overheating infotainment systems, camera and trunk failures, separating front suspensions, their “fully self-driving” ADAS, their pedestrian alert tones, their seatbelt bell, software bugs in their brakes, and various touchscreen failures. And that’s just in the US. In Germany, Tesla was slammed last July while trying to pass on frame damage painted over to its Model 3s as well.
