Both Elon Musk and Tesla, his electric car startup, are not having a good time. The business has recently been in the news due to a few of their vehicles catching fire. There is currently more drama around Tesla. More than a million of Tesla’s vehicles must be recalled in the US, according to the US government.
About 1.1 million automobiles in the US appear to have windows that are affected by a software problem, according to BBC news . The issue is primarily caused by the automated windows in Tesla vehicles. When the window is about to close and detects resistance from something (such as a hand, for example), it should halt and turn around.
That, however, is not the case with the impacted vehicles. This implies that the window will keep rising even if a hand is detected. As you can see, if a person’s hand gets caught, that can cause legal problems.

The problem was found back in August while the product was being tested. Certain models produced between 2017 and 2022 are affected. Model 3 sedans, a number of Model Y SUVs that were unveiled between 2021 and 2022, Model S sedans, and Model X SUVs are included in this.
Thankfully, Tesla has already begun providing the update to its customers on September 13. We don’t know which models have so far received the update.
