Tesla is issuing a voluntary recall on nearly 1.1 million vehicles because the pinch protection feature on their power door windows may allow them to squeeze too hard before rolling the glass down.

Tesla first discovered the issue during in-house testing in August and validated in early September, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The pinch protection feature is meant to prevent injury to an occupant’s extremities as a window closes.


According to the report, the following models are affected, 2017-2022 Model 3, 2020-2021 Model Y, and 2021-2022 Model S and Model X vehicles.

Reuters tweeted Thursday, “Tesla’s windows appear to have a pinch problem. Elon Musk’s electric car company is recalling nearly 1.1 million U.S. vehicles because the automatic-reversal system on some windows may not react correctly when detecting an obstruction.”
