Tesla (TSLA) has recalled nearly 1.1 million electric vehicles because the power windows could pinch the driver’s or passenger’s fingers when closing.
The recall affects a large number of models, including certain 2017-2022 Model 3, 2020-2021 Model Y, and 2021-2022 Model S and X.
The recall notice states that the problem with the electric vehicles is due to the automatic reversing system of the windows. This system may not retract properly after detecting an obstacle, which could result in the driver or passenger of the vehicle being trapped and injured during retraction.
The window issue is also a violation of a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard for power windows.
Tesla discovered the window issue back in August during production testing. There are no known warranty claims, testimonials, accidents, injuries or deaths related to the recall.
To fix the window issue, Tesla is rolling out an over-the-air automatic window reversing system software update at no cost to affected vehicle owners.
A recall notice is expected to be sent to affected Tesla owners on November 15th.

As of 9:56 a.m. ET Thursday, shares of Tesla were trading at $295.73, down $5.07, or 1.69%.
