Another Tesla mass recall, this one affecting nearly 1.1 million cars, was reported by outlets such as Reuters and the BBC on Thursday.

Tesla's stock has dropped by 3.5 percent after the news, but Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO, disagrees with the terminology used, stating this is not a recall.

Tesla was ordered to recall more than 1 million cars because to a safety issue where the windows might not function correctly following an accidental obstruction by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The company responded by stating the issue might be resolved with a software update.

"The terminology is outdated and ineffective. This is a minor over-the-air software upgrade. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no injuries," Elon Musk said on Twitter.

The issue in question affects all four Tesla models, including the 2017-2022 Model 3, the 2020-2021 Model Y, and the 2021-2022 Model S and Model X cars.

The problem, according to the NHTSA, is that a closing window might exert excessive force by pinching a driver or passenger before retracting, increasing the risk of injury.

Tesla will soon be sending an over-the-air software update for the automatic window reversal system and, on November 15, will send notification letters to all Tesla owners who might encounter the issue.
