Tesla to withdraw nearly half a million cars from owners

Due to issues with the windows closing on the company’s electric vehicles, over a million Tesla owners may soon receive recall warnings. For the following makes and models, respectively: 2017–22 Model 3, 2020–21 Model Y, X, and S. Tesla has until mid-November to get in touch with impacted owners, and it intends to remedy the issue with an OTA software update, according to reports.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a recall notice for many late-model vehicles across Tesla’s lineup on Tuesday. The window automatic reversal system “may not react correctly after detecting an obstruction,” according to a report, and as a result, “a closing window may exert excessive force by pinching a driver or passenger before retracting, increasing the risk of injury.”

Tesla originally identified the issues in August when testing cars, and since September 13 has made the upgrade available for recently constructed cars. However, numerous Twitter users commented on the statement and claimed that identical problems have been plaguing their automobiles at least since 2021.

With the infotainment system overheating, camera and trunk defects, separating suspension, ADAS “full self driving” failure, pedestrian warning beeps, seat belt beeps, brake software glitches, and various touchscreen glitches are just a few of the safety-related Tesla recalls that have occurred in the past two years alone.
