Mounting clips may break
In the recall issued Aug. 31, NHTSA said mounting clips for the vehicle’s rearview camera can break, which can cause the image not to appear properly on the display and potentially result in an accident.
The vehicles, NHTSA wrote, do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 111, “Rear Visibility.”
