1.1 million Tesla cars recalled due to failures – The Mazatlán Post

The American electric car manufacturer Tesla has initiated a recall of almost 1.1 million vehicles in the United States due to the risk posed by a safety device in electric windows.

In a letter published this Thursday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) points out that, in several models of the brand, the detection system that should reverse the path of the electric glass in the face of an obstacle would not work correctly. The problem was discovered in August.

This potential flaw in Tesla vehicles increases the risk of injury to drivers and passengers, whose fingers could be pinched.

The vehicles mentioned are some Model 3 made between 2017 and 2022, Model Y between 2020 and 2021, Model S between 2021 and 2022, and Model X also between 2021 and 2022.

Tesla will conduct a remote software update to comply with federal regulations and send notification letters to owners beginning November 15.

The group owned by Elon Musk ensures that no accident, injury or death has been reported from this problem.

Tesla has already made several recalls this year to remotely update software that can be problematic.

Musk’s company has long run these updates without users or regulators being notified, but in recent months it has come under the scrutiny of the NHTSA, which launched an investigation last year after several crashes with emergency vehicles.

Vehicle owners will receive a notification on the Tesla mobile phone app as well as on the car screen.

Since September 13, the cars produced by Tesla already incorporate the software update for the window up and down system.
