Honda Acura MDX, the vehicle provides a backup camera to display the rear view when the vehicle backs up. However the camera system does not work at night under street light. The driver barely sees anything at rear through the video display even it is set at night mode and it is turned to max. Bright level. I almost hit a child when I tried to backup the car with the rear view though the camera and I thought it was clear but it is not. It is a very dangerous and it could kill a child. Acura should never install such poor quality cameras on its high end vehicles. Or Acura should put a clear warning mark beside the display which warns driver never use it at night. Comparing to the other brand rear view cameras I never heard such stories that they are not be able to work at night. There are complaints on the web and many people are experiencing this problem. I hope Acura will replace the camera and prevent it from an accident really happened.
