Ford Recalls 700,000 Vehicles Over Rearview Camera Problems
Ford Motor Company issued a huge recall today on multiple 2020 model vehicles. Is yours on the list?
Ford said in a press release that the vehicles under recall have, "insufficient electrical conductivity within the printed circuit board internal to the camera. A rearview camera that intermittently displays a blank or distorted image would not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and requires corrective action."
The recall will affect 620,246 vehicles in the United States and just over 75,000 in Canada. Ford says that it is NOT aware of any injuries or accidents that have happened because of this issue. Ford says dealers will replace the camera and notifications will start going out to owners in November.
