It's something they hope can be fixed with a recall and a software update.

  • Working backup cameras have been required in all new cars in the US since 2018.
  • There are 38,400 affected SUVs and they were all built in Chicago between 10/19/2018 and 12/07/2020.
  • The recall (#21C09) is expected to start in May 2021.
