Tesla is issuing a voluntary recall on nearly 1.1 million vehicles because the pinch protection feature on their power door windows may allow them to squeeze too hard before rolling the glass down.
Tesla first discovered the issue during in-house testing in August and validated in early September, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The pinch protection feature is meant to prevent injury to occupant's extremities as a window closes.
Federal guidelines say that the system should be activated at no more than a squeezing force of 100 Newton before reversing.
