Toyota Recalls Vehicles for Back-Up Camera Malfunction
Aug. 22, 2019—Toyota is recalling one of its SUVs for a safety concern, according to a report from KSLA.
The carmaker says 2019 RAV4 and RAV4 hybrids have back-up cameras that can malfunction. The cameras don't always engage when the cars are in reverse.
Toyota is recalling about 14,215 cars for the rearview camera issue, according to Consumer Reports. As of May 1, 2018, all new passenger cars, SUVs, and pickups are required to have a 10x20-foot zone of visibility behind them. This is typically achieved by having a built-in rearview camera.
According to Consumer Reports, Toyota will inspect the cameras' functionality and, if necessary, replace the entire audio system, which includes the video screen and the cameras' electrical connections.
