October 1 , 2019 | Personal Injury

We except the products we buy and consume to be safe for our use and consumption. Unfortunately that is not always the case and sometimes the products we buy pose potential risks for our health or safety. One product that is frequently recalled is automobiles. When a problem arises with an automobile, it is common for the automaker to issue a recall to warn owners of the potential hazards. Recently, the automaker, Nissan, has issued a recall for some of its vehicles.

Nissan has issued a recall for 1.23 million of its vehicles. The recall comes after the discovery of a problem with the backup cameras in the vehicles. The backup cameras do not return to the default image when the transmission is shifted into reverse. If the driver had previously adjusted the camera display, this could cause the backup camera to produce bad or reduced visibility. The fact that there could be reduced rear visibility could lead to an increase in the probability that the driver and vehicle will be involved in an accident.

The recall includes various 2018 and 2019 models of Nissan vehicles. The types of vehicles included in the recall are: Rogue SUV, Altima sedan, Frontier, Kicks, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, NV. NV200, Pathfinder, Sentra, Titan, Versa Note, Versa sedan and some Infiniti models.

The company has stated that the problem with the backup cameras can be fixed with a software update. Owners of the recalled vehicles will be able to take their vehicle to a Nissan dealership where the software upgrade will be carried out for free. The company plans to begin notifying owners of the vehicles included in the recall on October 21, 2019.
