Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 31,947 model year 2021 Atlas Cross Sports, Tiguan LWBs, Jetta NFs, Jetta GLIs, Golf GTIs, Atlas FLs and Arteons.

The automobile manufacturer says the rear view camera could malfunction during an ignition cycle, leading to a black screen or infotainment system freeze.

According to Volkswagen Group of America, a black or frozen rear view image reduces the driver’s view when reversing, increasing the risk of a crash.

In connection with what to do in rectifying the error, Volkswagen will notify affected owners, and dealers will update the ‘infotainment system software’ free of charge, report said.

The current recall is expected to begin January 15, 2021.

Meanwhile, owners may contact Volkswagen Customer Service on (800) 893-5298; the Volkswagen number for this recall is 91BB/91BC.
