Volkswagen is recalling 84,432 vehicles in the United States and 13,562 in Canada over a problem with the rearview camera. The rearview camera may be delayed or disabled when reverse gear is engaged on some vehicles.

The affected models are the 2022 to 2024 Golf GTR and Golf R, as well as the 2024 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport SUVs. For the latter, this is a second recall in two weeks.

No injuries or deaths have been reported related to the issue, Volkswagen said.

The problem, as mentioned above, is that software glitches can cause a delay in the display of the rearview camera image or not allow it to be displayed at all. In this case, recalls the American NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), the equivalent of Transport Canada, the delay between the moment when the image should be displayed and what happens causes the system to no longer meet the required standards.

Obviously, reduced or no visibility can increase the risk of injury to people around the vehicle when it is reversing.

The good news for owners is that their vehicle will be able to receive a software update to fix the problem. Therefore, if you have experienced this problem with your model, know that Volkswagen is aware of it and is working on it.

Notification letters to owners should be sent by August 23.
