Franklin, TN – August 7, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 10,477 rental SUVs and pickup trucks over an issue with the rearview camera. The dashboard monitor may not display images from the rearview camera when the vehicle is reversing, increasing the risk of a crash.
The recall covers the following models:
- 2022 Nissan Frontier
- 2021 Nissan Pathfinder
- 2022 Nissan Titan
- 2021 – 2022 Nissan Rogue
These vehicles give customers the option of a radio service subscription as part of the rental. Even if the customer declines the service, the In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) system will continue to search for radio channels, causing the system to reboot after a certain time. While the system is rebooting, the rearview camera will be unavailable.
The component involved in this recall is the IVI software program version, with multiple part numbers including 4612, 4618, 5319, 4901 and 4617.
