Approximately 1.2 million model-year 2018-19 Nissan Altima, Maxima, Sentra and Versa sedans, Frontier and Titan pickup trucks; Kicks, Versa Note and Leaf hatchbacks; Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue and Rogue Sport SUVs; NV and NV200 work vans; Infiniti Q50 sedans; Q60 coupes; and QX30 and QX80 SUVs; and model-year 2019 Nissan GT-R sports cars; Taxi vans; Infiniti QX50 and QX60 SUVs; and Q70 and Q70L sedans are being recalled due to issues with the backup camera. The display setting on the backup camera can be adjusted such that the rearview image is no longer visible and the system will retain that setting the next time the vehicle is placed in Reverse. The lack of a backup camera display image increases the risk of a crash.
Nissan began notifying owners on Oct. 21. Owners can call Nissan at 800-867-7669, Infiniti at 800-662-6200 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will update the software for the backup camera settings.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
