Tesla isn’t recalling 1.1 million cars, just issuing a small software update: Mask NewsPipa

San Francisco: Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Friday that Tesla is not physically recalling the 1.1 million vehicles, saying the company is only issuing a “minor software” update to fix the pinching window problem.

Earlier reports cited a safety recall report Tesla submitted to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that said the electric car maker recalled about 1.1 million vehicles to prevent drivers from pinching their windows.

These Tesla cars may not recognize certain objects when the windows are closed, causing “a pinch injury to the occupant.”

After a follower posted on Twitter that it wasn’t a physical recall, Musk replied: “The terminology is outdated and inaccurate. It’s a small over-the-air software update. To our knowledge, no injuries.”

The electric car-maker said it will release an over-the-air (OTA) firmware update to affected vehicles that improves the calibration of the vehicle’s automatic window reversal system behavior, “at no cost to the customer”.

Tesla said it is not aware of any warranty claims or injuries caused by the window problem.

In its safety recall report submitted to NHTSA, Tesla said that on September 12, the company determined that the pinch detection and recall performance “exceeded the requirements of FMVSS 118, Section 5 (Automatic Reversing Systems), depending on the spring force and rod configuration”.

“Accordingly, Tesla has decided to issue a voluntary recall”.

In May, the electric car-maker physically recalled 1,30,000 vehicles to fix touchscreen issues caused by an overheating central processing unit (CPU).

The Elon Musk-powered company recently rolled out an over-the-air update (OTA) to fix the affected vehicles, which include the 2022 Model 3 and Y, and the 2021 and 2022 Model X and S.

An overheating CPU can even cause the car’s touchscreen to go completely blank.
