2018 Nissan Pathfinder that's included in the Nissan recall.

Nissan North America is voluntarily recalling more than 1.2 million Nissan and Infiniti vehicles because the backup camera may not display an image when the vehicle is placed in Reverse, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Nissan estimates that 100 percent of the vehicles being recalled have this problem.

The Federal Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance notified Nissan in December 2018 about a failure of the system during a lab test of a 2019 Nissan Altima.

A Nissan spokeswoman, Jeannie Whited, said that the automaker is not aware of any accidents related to this condition.
