The news from car connections indicates that BMW will recall most of its newer models, including the Toyota Supra, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Phantom, for a rearview camera flaw.
The camera settings in those cars can be adjusted to no longer project a rear image when in reverse, and that setting stays the same the next time the vehicle is put in reverse, which doesn’t comply with the NHTSA standard for “rearview mirrors.”
The recall for the design flaw covers 257,481 models made from 2018 onward, according to paperwork filed with federal regulators this month.
Included in the recall are 2019-2020 3-Series, 2018-2020 5-Series, 2018-2019 6-Series, 2019-2020 7-Series, 2019-2020 8-Series, the 2018-2020 X3, and the X4, X5, X6, X7, and Z4 from model years 2019-2020.
This is the second time BMW has recalled the 2020 Toyota Supra, which is a joint product development based on the Z4 roadster. In addition, the recall includes the 2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan and 2018-2019 Phantom, which have the same rearview camera setting.
