Tesla recalls more than 1 million vehicles over faulty power windows2022-09-22 19:04 by Daniela
Tesla is recalling more than a million cars because of defects in their automatic windows that could injure passengers, the nation's auto safety regulator said. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that's a violation of federal safety standards for power windows. An online software update will fix the problem, Tesla says.
Tesla said it has spotted a flaw in 1.1 million cars' windows that could pinch occupants while closing. The windows are supposed to stop if they detect an obstacle in their path but Tesla said testing discovered a possible problem in some of its windows. It said it should be able to fix the problem with an over-the-air software update, and that car owners won't need to bring their cars in to be serviced.
The recall covers certain 2017 to 2022 Model 3 sedans and some 2020 and 2021 Model Y SUVs. Also included are some Model S sedans and Model X SUVs from 2021 and 2022.
This is far from Tesla's first safety recall. Over the last two years alone, Teslas have been recalled on account of overheating infotainment systems, camera and trunk defects, separating front suspensions, their "full self driving" ADAS, their pedestrian warning sounds, their seatbelt chimes, software glitches in their brakes, and sundry touchscreen failures. And that's just in the US. In Germany this past July, Tesla got popped trying to pass off painted-over frame damage on its Model 3s too.
