Tesla issues more than 1 million car recalls over window software | USA TODAY

Tesla recalls more than 1 million U.S. vehicles to update window reversing software so it doesn't pinch fingers. RELATED: Tesla collides with private jet while owner using 'Smart Summon' mode Tesla is recalling nearly 1.1 million of its vehicles due to an automatic window safety issue that can cause a person's fingers to be pinched. The electric vehicle manufacturer informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration via a letter Wednesday that it would perform an over-the-air software update of the automatic window reversal system. NHTSA said a closing window without the proper automatic reversing system may exert excessive force by pinching a driver or passenger before retracting, increasing the risk of injury. The recall covers some 2017-2022 Model 3, 2020-2021 Model Y, and 2021-2022 Model S and Model X vehicles. The issue will be handled like a software bug, with an update alert coming to their apps and screens, not a visit to a shop or dealer. » Subscribe to USA TODAY: » Watch more on this and other topics from USA TODAY: » USA TODAY delivers current local and national news, sports, entertainment, finance, technology, and more through award-winning journalism, photos, videos and VR. #Tesla #ElonMusk #Recall
