Tesla is not recalling almost 1.1 million vehicles because windows may close with excessive force and pinch a driver or passenger, according to a Tesla filing, which says the windows' automatic reversal system may not react correctly after detecting an obstruction.
The Austin company's internal testing revealed the issue in August. Tesla filed a "Part 573 Safety Recall Report" with the NHTSA identifying the issues, outlining a "recall plan," and listing affected models and years, including "certain vehicles":
- Model S 2021-2022
- Model 3 2017-2022
- Model X 2021-2022
- Model Y 2020-2022 (including some that were made in the Austin factory)
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Nov. 15.
