More Than 1.2 Million Nissan And Infiniti Models Recalled Due To Reverse Camera Issues

Nissan will recall more than 1.2 million vehicles due to an issue with their reversing camera, according to Consumer Reports.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall notice reveals that the backup camera settings can be adjusted so that the rearview image is no longer visible. If this setting change is made, it will be saved and the screen will not display an image from the backup camera the next time the gear selector is put in reverse.

The Japanese car manufacturer believes that all of the 1.2 million Nissan and Infiniti models being recalled have this problem. Nissan was first notified during a lab test of a 2019 Altima conducted by the Federal Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance in December 2018. So far, there have been no reported injuries related to the issue.

Nissan-branded models embroiled in the recall include the Altima, Frontier, GT-R, Kicks, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, NV, NV200, NV200 Taxi, Pathfinder, Rogue, Rogue Sport, Sentra, Titan, Versa and Note, all from the 2018 and 2019 model years. Infiniti models being recalled are the Q50, Q60, Q70, Q70 L, QX30, QX50, QX60 and QX80, also from the 2018 and 2019 model years.

Nissan and Infiniti dealerships will update the software for the reverse camera settings to fix the issue, free of charge. Owners of Altima and Rogue models will be notified first during the week of October 21, while owners of all other Nissan and Infiniti models will be notified the week of November 4.

        Damn. I managed to another dodge another 2016-17 or so Q50 recall since I got the VR30 instead of the Mercedes four cylinder models that were affected.
