Ford recalls more than 277,000 trucks and cars due to rear camera lens issue

The Ford Motor Company has issued a recall for 277,040 vehicles due to rear camera lenses becoming cloudy, affecting driver visibility while reversing. Ford continues to be the leader in nationwide recalls this year, surpassing all other automobile manufacturers.

The recall impacts the 2017-2020 model years of the Ford F-250, F-350, and F-450 pickup truck models, plus the Lincoln Continental sedan, which all have a 360-degree camera lens attached, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

“A foggy, or cloudy rearview image can result from the camera’s antireflective lens coating,” Ford was informed in an NHTSA correspondence. A lack of visibility when reversing can increase the chance of driver colliding with another vehicle.

The Dearborn-based auto company noted that it had received over 8,000 warranty reports within the U.S. regarding the issue.

Ford will start notifying affected owners on September 12 by mail and will replace the lenses free of charge.

Since the start of 2022, Ford has issued approximately 50 recalls, potentially affecting 7,225,117 vehicles, according to the NHTSA.

Three weeks ago, the Michigan manufacturer issued a similar recall for its 2022 Transit model due to a missing audio control module that produces a faulty rear camera image while reversing.

Fox recalled more than 2.9 million Escape and Fusion models, Fusion Connect, Transit Connect and Edge vehicles from previous decade because of rollaway problems when parked. Breitbart News reported that Ford did this in June.
