According to documents released Thursday, electric vehicle giant, Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is recalling more than 1 million vehicles in the U.S. over a faulty window automatic reversal system that may not properly detect obstruction.

"If a window is closing and detects an obstruction, the condition may increase the risk of a pinching injury to the occupant," according to the recall document.

The recall covers some Model 3s manufactured between 2017 and 2022, Model Ys made between 2020 and 2021 and certain Model S and Model X Teslas from 2021 to 2022. Owners of the vehicles included in the recall are expected to be notified beginning Nov. 15.

NHTSA said the vehicles failed to comply with the requirements of a federal motor vehicle safety standard on power windows.

Tesla said during product testing in August employees identified window automatic reversal system performance that had "greater than expected variations in response to pinch detection."

After extensive additional testing, Tesla determined the vehicle's pinch detection and retraction performance in the test results did not meet automatic reversal systems requirements.

Tesla said it was not aware of any crashes, injuries, or deaths related to the condition, per the filing, and that starting Sept. 13, vehicles in production and in pre-delivery received a software update that sets power operated window operation to the requirements.

Complete overkill by the press and solved with an over the air software update.
