Tesla Recalls 1M Vehicles for Pinch Protection Issue
Sept. 27, 2022—Tesla is recalling some of its vehicles due to a window issue.
According to Fox Business, the pinch protection feature on the power door windows of 1,096,762 Tesla models may squeeze too hard before rolling down the window glass.
The purpose of the pinch protection feature is to help prevent injury when a window closes. Although the automaker is currently unaware of any incidents related to this issue, Tesla has developed and implemented a firmware update for pre-delivery and new vehicles to address the problem.
This recall impacts some of the 2017-2022 Model 3 vehicles, 2021-2022 Model S and Model X vehicles and 2020-2021 Model Y Tesla vehicles. Tesla stores have reportedly already been notified of the recall, and owners will be notified via letter in November. Existing Tesla owners will have the issue solved by an upcoming over-the-air update.
