Nearly 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S., Canada and a host of other countries are being recalled by Nissan due to a problem with backup cameras.
The recall involves the majority of 2018 and 2019 model years of most of the Nissan and Infiniti models.
The problem with the camera display is that drivers can adjust it so the images are not visible. The camera will maintain that setting the next time the car is shifted into reverse, thus violating federal safety standards. Doing so can also increase the likelihood of a crash.
Starting October 21st, dealers will begin making the repair to the backup camera software settings free of charge.
