Tesla updated the latest fault with its windows

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.

[Related: Tesla’s software-related recall extends to 11,704 vehicles.]

It is not clear if the malfunction has hurt someone yetand according official documents, Tesla is currently not aware of any warranty claims or serious injuries resulting from this issue. Tesla owners can expect to receive notification letters in the mail around November 15, but can also contact Tesla customer service anytime at 1-877-798-3752 for information.

In Tesla-related news, a security researcher has released evidence showing how a Model Y can theoretically be hacked. Meanwhile, in February, the automaker was fined for violating the Clean Air Act.
