DETROIT – Tesla is recalling nearly 1.1 million vehicles in the US because the windows can pinch a person’s fingers when rolled up.

In documents released Thursday by U.S. safety regulators, Tesla says the automatic window roll-up system may not respond properly after detecting an obstacle.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says this is a violation of federal safety standards for power windows. An online software update will fix the problem, Tesla says.

The recall affects certain 2017-2022 Model 3 sedans and certain 2020 and 2021 Model Y SUVs. Also included are some 2021 and 2022 Model S sedans and Model X SUVs.

Tesla discovered the problem during production testing in August. Starting November 15, owners will be notified by letter. The company says in the documents that the cars in production have received the update since September 13.

As of Sept. 16, Tesla was not aware of any warranty claims or injuries due to the problem, according to the filings.
