Nissan and Infiniti are recalling over 1.2 million vehicles due to a backup camera issue. In the vehicles, drivers are able to choose a display setting that removes the rear-view image when in reverse and the vehicles will remember that choice setting the next time the driver backs the car up. This feature does not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards as back up cameras are now federally mandated in all new cars.
Nissan models affected include the 2018-2019 Nissan Altima, Frontier, GT-R, Kicks, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, NV, NV200, Pathfinder, Rogue, Rogue Sport, Sentra, Titan, Versa Note and Versa Sedan. From Infiniti, the Q50, Q60, QX30, QX60, Q70, Q70L and QX80 are all included in the recall.
Drivers of these vehicles will receive notifications via mail and will be directed to their nearest Nissan or Infiniti dealership. There, a technician will install the new system software to meet all federal requirements.
