Recall Street Sign

NISSAN/INFINITI

Nissan is recalling 1.2 million vehicles in the U.S., Canada, South Korea and Israel over noncompliant rear visibility camera display systems.

The recall affects certain 2018 and 2019 Nissan Altima, Frontier, Kicks, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, NV, NV200, Pathfinder, Rogue, Rogue Sport, Sentra, Titan and Versa vehicles. Infiniti Q50, Q60, QX30 and QX80 vehicles also are affected by the recall.

Drivers could adjust rearview camera display settings "to the degree that the image is no longer visible," and the display failed to return to the required default image when the vehicle is shifted into reverse, NHTSA documents said.

In a statement reported by Automotive News, Nissan said: "Nissan Group has notified NHTSA and Transport Canada that it is recalling certain MY 2018-2019 Nissan and Infiniti vehicles in the U.S. and Canada, in addition to South Korea and Israel, to remedy a technical non-compliance by updating the rear visibility system." "Nissan Group will update the rear-visibility system software to remedy this condition."

Nissan will begin notifying customers Oct. 21 and will fix the issue with a software upgrade.
