2020 Supra Recalled Again By BMW, Alongside Its Own And Rolls Royce’s Cars

The BMW Group has issued a recall for most of its 2018-2020 vehicles, including select Rolls-Royce models and the 2020 Toyota Supra, due to an issue with the reversing camera.

A recall notice published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reveals that the display settings of the affected vehicles can be changed so that the rear camera view is turned off when the car is in Reverse. If such a change is made, the system will retain these settings the next time the car is driven.

If this all sounds familiar that’s because no less than 1.2 million Nissan and Infiniti models were recalled last month for exactly the same issue.

Consumer Reports notes that dealerships will update the reverse camera software free of charge to rectify the issue. The recall is expected to commence on November 19, 2019.

Impacted by the recall is the 2018 BMW 540d as well as 2018-2019 640i xDrive Gran Turismo and Rolls-Royce Phantom models. Affected vehicles from the 2018-2020 model years include the 530i, 530i xDrive, 540i, 540i xDrive, M550i xDrive, M5, 530e, 530e xDrive, X3 sDrive, X3 xDrive, X3 M40i, X3 M.

There are even more 2019-2020 vehicles involved, such as the X4 xDrive, X4 M40i, X4 M, X7 xDrive, , 740Li, 740Li xDrive, 750Li, 750Li xDrive, 8 Series Convertible and Coupe 840i, 840i xDrive, M850i xDrive, X5 sDrive, X5 xDrive, X5 M50i, X6 xDrive, X6 M50i, 330i, 330i xDrive, M340i, M340i xDrive, Z4 sDrive, Z4 M40i, 740Le xDrive and 745Le xDrive. Also being recalled are 2019 M850i xDrive Gran Coupe, 2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan, and 2020 Toyota Supra models.

If you happen to own a 2018, 2019, or 2020 BMW model in the U.S., we recommend heading to the NHTSA website and typing in your VIN to see if your car is involved in the recall.

    If you ever needed more proof of how badly Toyota screwed up when they co-developed the Supra with BMW, this is it. German engineering clearly doesn’t mean crap these days and god help you when the warranty expires. There is a reason second hand BMWs usually sell for half of even less than their initial value.

    • Matt

      And Toyota haven’t had any recalls of their own? There are plenty of YouTube videos of tuners getting big power out of the new Supra with only minor mods, so balance that positive aspect with something as minuscule as a malfunctioning reverse camera.

      • FFEMT6

        And the missing structural welds, don’t forget that first recall. That seems a little more important.

        • Matt

          Yes that was very important, but only affected a small number of early cars and was caught quickly.

  • Bash

    I couldn’t quite understand. Does it mean that the system is not reset when turning on/off the car?

  • FFEMT6

    Hmmm, so let me understand this right, BMW is issuing Toyota’s recalls for them now? ?‍♂️

    Even lemonade can be good or bad.

    I guess it depends on who is making it?

    Toy-ota should have enough sugar in their bags$$ without the need to collaborate with Subaru and BMW.

    I’m not sure why they can’t make their own lemonade?

    They did in the past.

    I get the profit-sharing volume equation. But, at what cost to the quality and reputation that they have built for many, many years.

    I guess it’s time to down another beer before turning out the lights?
