In December 2018, Nissan learned of a Nissan Altima lab test that indicated problems with the backup cameras which violated federal safety standards. Engineers opened an investigation and had several conversations with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) concerning noncompliance issues.

The automaker says rear visibility laws require rearview camera systems built on or after May 1, 2018, to return to a default image at the beginning of each backing event regardless of any modifications drivers previously selected on the systems.

The problem is a driver may potentially adjust the rearview camera and display settings so the image is no longer visible and the system will retain those settings at the next backing event. This creates the federal safety standard violation.

Considering there are more than 1.3 million vehicles involved, Nissan says it will notify customers in phases so that dealers can update the rearview camera software.

According to the automaker, 1,228,830 vehicles are recalled in the U.S. and 126,195 are recalled in Canada.

The U.S. recall is expected to begin October 21, 2019, but it may take until November 11 before all customers are contacted.

If you own one of the recalled vehicles and have questions, please call Nissan at 800-867-7669 or Infiniti at 800-662-6200. Canadian customers may call 855-835-3854. has driver complaints about the Nissan and Infiniti vehicles.
