Tesla is no stranger to vehicle recalls, from camera issues to “self-driving” issues, until that time earlier this year when all cars needed security fixes. This week, company CEO Elon Musk was given another issue to add to the list, such as NPR reported, the electric vehicle company “is recalling” approximately 1.1 million cars, citing a fault with the windows that could cause possibly pinched fingers.
“Tesla, Inc. is recalling certain 2017-2022 Model 3, 2020-2022 Model Y, and 2021-2022 Model S and Model X vehicles. The automatic window reversal system may not react correctly after detecting an obstruction. read an ad issued earlier this week by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). “As such, these vehicles do not meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 118, ‘Power Window Systems’.” The problem will be fixed with an over-the-air update, according to the NHTSA.
Musk, unsurprisingly, shared his feelings on the subject. On twitter.
