American electric car maker Tesla is recalling nearly 1.1 million cars in the United States because there is a danger that the windows could pinch a person’s fingers while being raised, the Associated Press reported.
The automatic system controlling the windows did not react properly when it detected an obstacle, the company said in filings with regulators. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this is a violation of the standards for automatic car windows, BTA informs.
The recall covers certain 2017 through 2022 Model 3 sedans, as well as certain 2020 and 2021 Model Y SUVs, and 2021 and 2022 Model Xs.
Tesla identified the problem during product testing in August, and owners of affected cars will be notified by letters after November 15, as cars produced after September 13 were equipped with the system update.
The company says it has no information about any claims for compensation or injuries caused by the problem as of September 16.
