UNITED STATES: The window automated reversal system on almost 1.1 million Tesla vehicles in the United States may not respond appropriately after sensing an obstacle, increasing the risk of harm.

Owner of Tesla Elon Musk said, “The terminology is outdated & inaccurate. This is a tiny over-the-air software update. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no injuries.”

The manufacturer of electric vehicles informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it would update the automatic window reversal system’s software over the air. Some Model 3, Model Y, Model S, and Model X vehicles manufactured between 2017 and 2022 are included in the recall.

The company claimed it was unaware of any warranty claims, field reports, crashes, injuries, or fatalities connected to the recall.

According to the NHTSA, a window that closes improperly can apply too much force by pinching a driver or passenger before withdrawing, increasing the risk of harm.

The federal motor vehicle safety standard on power windows, according to NHTSA, was broken by the automobiles.

Tesla concluded that the vehicles’ pinch detection and retraction performance in the test results did not satisfy the requirements for automated reversing systems after conducting considerably more testing.

According to Tesla, a software update that sets a power-operated window operating to the specifications began to be installed on vehicles in production and in pre-delivery on September 13.

According to Tesla, the software update “improves the calibration of the behavior of the vehicle’s automatic window reversing mechanism.”

During trading on Thursday afternoon, Tesla’s stock fell by 3.5%.
