Toyota Canada is issuing a recall of close to 4,000 RAV4 SUVs due to a potentially defective backup camera.
According to Toyota’s recall notice, on some models of the popular compact SUV “the connector for the audio display unit might have been damaged during assembly. The damage could cause the backup camera system to not activate when the transmission is shifted into reverse”.
Recall that since May 1, 2018, auto manufacturers are required to include backup cameras in all new vehicles weighing 4,536 kg or less, and that a rearview image must display when the vehicle is in reverse gear.
Toyota Canada will replace audio system units found to be defective.
