Nissan has issued a recall, affecting 126,095 Nissan and Infiniti vehicles in Canada for the 2018-19 model years. The automaker confirmed a problem with the backup camera displays.
On September 24, 2019, Nissan issued a recall for various models under both the Nissan and Infiniti brands.
The automaker says owners can adjust the backup camera’s display in ways that affect its visibility. When they make those adjustments, the camera sticks with that setting the next time the vehicles are shifted into reverse. It’s a violation of Transport Canada safety standards, but also increases the risk of a crash.
Nissan states there have been no reported crashes or injuries related to the camera defect.
The recall affects about 1.23 million vehicles in the United States, with another 126,095 in Canada.
The recall has been confirmed to affect the 2018-2019 Nissan Altima, Frontier, Kicks, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, NV, NV200, Pathfinder, Rogue, Rogue Sport, Sentra, Titan, Versa Note and Versa Sedan. Additionally, the 2019 Nissan GT-R and Nissan Taxi are also included. For Infiniti, the 2018-19 Q50, Q60, QX30, QX50, QX60, Q70, Q70L and QX80.
Nissan will notify owners with instructions on taking their vehicle to a dealer for repair. Starting from October 21, dealers will update the backup camera’s software to fix the defect and ensure settings don’t get stuck. The repair won’t cost anything and could be done in as little as 30 minutes.
