Nissan’s Massive Recall of Vehicles in US and Canada

Nissan is currently doing a massive recall of 1.23 million vehicles in the United States and Canada. The reason for this recall is quite simple: the manufacturer just needs to fix the display of the backup camera of their cars.

Specifically, the vehicles included in the recall came from different model lines during the 2018 and 2019. A letter sent by the manufacturer to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has highlighted the following units: Nissan Altima, Nissan Kicks, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Rogue, Nissan Sentra, Nissan Frontier, Nissan Maxima, Nissan Murano, Nissan Versa Sedan, Nissan Titan. Most of the vehicles under the Infiniti series have been included, as well. 

These backup camera displays are there to provide the view coming from the rear-facing camera to the screen that is in front of the driver. By default, the setup of these displays should return to its original setting every time you back your vehicle. 

However, the vehicles that are included in the recall of Nissan do retain the settings that have been adjusted by their drivers. Such a flaw is potentially dangerous whenever the visibility of the camera has been reduced, or the driver has forgotten to turn back the default view of the backup camera.
