Tesla is recalling 1,096,762 model-year 2017-2022 Model 3, 2020-2022 Model Y, and 2021-2022 Model S and Model X vehicles due to an issue with the power windows. The power window automatic reversal system may continue to close even if there is an obstruction in the way, increasing the risk of injury.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on November 15, 2022. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 877-798-3752 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, Tesla will perform an over-the-air (OTA) software update of the automatic window reversal system.
