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

    Must resist the temptation to test this on my Ford Focus.

    Kind of wild we can just preform recalls from our house now without doing anything.

  3. My cousin got choked out by a window in the 90s lol he was leaning out and accidentally was putting pressure on the switch and the window rolled up in his neck lol

  4. Do NOT put your penis in the window crack, no matter how good it feels!!!!1

  5. This seems oniony… Hasn’t this always been a very *minor* danger with power windows?

  6. a software update lmao

  7. Great. Tesla pushed a software update and the issue disappeared. Nice.

  8. It’s not a recall. Just an update. Imagine calling all phone updates recalls…

  9. If you want to make a smart car omelet, you need to break a couple fingers.

  10. Why though when Elon could just tweet a video of him pinching his fingers like it’s the cool thing to do

  11. If I was going to buy a new electric car, Tesla would be at the bottom of my list. Having been around a friend’s, the perceived build quality (some body panels weren’t straight on a brand new car, and the interior wood felt rough!), and the fact that most stuff is controlled entirely by touchscreen (I’d prefer to be able to control stuff without looking away from the road, even if the car was driving itself) just doesn’t justify the price tag for me, especially given what other manufacturers are offering! Some of the new Hyundais look great!

    Edit: Added some context. I’m not condemning Tesla owners! I want everyone to be happy with the car they drive! 🙂

  12. You’d think this would be something their QA would test before rolling out?

  13. 11 recalls in 2021. Not sure how many in 2022 but there were already 10 recalls by April. Definitely one of, if not the, most recalled brand of car.

  14. Can’t most automatic windows pinch fingers?

  15. I’m laughing at all the Tesla owners pinching their fingers in their windows.

  16. The idea of being able to connect to a vehicle remotely and change software is a terrible idea. Its only a matter of time until someone figures out a security weakness and fucks with things.

    Aside from that, this kind of connectivity only adds to the inevitability of making pay per use or subscription services for a vehicle you can already paid for. (A-la BMW and the heated seats)

  17. Thought about getting a Tesla when shopping for a new family ride.. it was quickly taken off the list. Glad I did so

  18. Man teslas kinda suck

  19. UGH. How silly is this.

  20. Also part of the recall, “Increased risk of facial harm to drivers who constantly remind you that they’re better than you because they drive a Tesla” 🤷🏼‍♂️

  21. In other news “Tesla says they will perform 1 million free circumcisions to anyone who wants one.”

  22. I would like to recall my mom’s Chevy station wagon. The door closed on my fingers in 1980.

  23. That’s quite good for Tesla QC

  24. Wow, then why aren’t they recalling FSD? At least FSD is shown to not be safe and kills people.

  25. I remember wishing I could put a down payment on a Tesla 15 years ago.

    Now, I wouldn’t drive one if it were given to me because Musk is a giant fucking asshole. Great spokesman…

  26. But not because they run over kids?

  27. I hate how the windows have to go down a fraction of an inch when you open the door. Foolish and over-engineered.

    Oh and just wait until the screen glitches out and jacks the heating system to ultra high, and you can’t turn it off because the screen is glitched, so you have to shut it off with the app, but you can’t do that safely while driving, and the car just turns it back on every 30 seconds anyway.

    Fuck you Model Why

  28. This is what you get with fully self automated cars. Kids make a mess; the car be like: “fuck you and your fingers!”
