Unlike conventional car recalls, Nissan announced the recall of more than 1.2 million vehicles simply because they did not meet federal rear visibility standards. The recall will be officially launched on October 21 and is expected to last more than half a month.
Often we see car recalls because of quality problems in the components themselves or faults in the actual driving process. However, this recall is since Nissan's rear-view camera system stays dark until it changes its settings again, unlike your iPhone, which can automatically adjust the brightness of the screen according to the brightness of the external environment.
Nissan models affected by the recall included the following lists: the Infiniti, the Frontier, the GT-R, the Kicks, the Leaf, the NV, the Pathfinder, the Rogue, the Rogue Sport, the Titan, the Versa Note, and the Versa. Other Nissan vehicles registered in the United States were affected by the recall, totaling 122,8830 vehicles.
These vehicles on the recall list need to be returned to dealers so that their rear-view cameras can receive software updates.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration believes that the rearview mirror display settings can be adjusted so that the images displayed are no longer visible. This does not happen automatically; you need to change the settings manually. This is similar to the fact that a mobile phone can manually adjust the screen brightness. It is easy to see the screen blurred if the screen brightness is lowered for some reason before entering the natural bright state and forgetting to readjust it.
Although the screen and actual camera need not be replaced in this recall, Nissan has to bear the cost of installing software for free updates of rear-view cameras for recalled owners.
Besides, because the recall involves too many models, Nissan also has to bear the time and human costs of notifying the owner in stages.
As we all know, one of the prerequisites to win the favor of the automobile market is that the product itself must meet the quality of the local market and other accessibility standards, otherwise, even the best design cannot pass the first barrier - the approval of local regulatory authorities is crucial. Our oil pumps and other products do not need you to worry about these things, because they have passed the certification of European and international standards in the automotive industry such as IATF16949.
