Audi Recalls Almost All of its 2022 Models Because of Backup Camera Issues

Audi is launching a recall that affects all of the models it sells in Canada, except the A6

  • The backup camera can freeze or show a black screen.

  • Every model except the A6 sedan is affected

  • 473 vehicles in Canada will have to go back to the dealer

The backup camera has been made mandatory by transport Canada in every new vehicle starting with the 2017 model year.

Since it is an important safety feature, defects with its operation require a safety recall.

This is why Audi is launching a recall for its 2022 and some 2021 model year vehicles in Canada.

In the affected vehicles, the image produced by the camera could freeze or appear black, which would limit the rearward visibility of the driver and increase the risk of a collision while backing up.

This problem affects cars equipped with the Modular Infotainment Toolkit system, which will need to have its parameters updated by a dealership.

This recall applies to almost the entire Audi lineup, since the 2021 model year A8 and S8 sedans can suffer from it, as well as the 2022 A3 and S3 sedans, A4 sedan, A5 Sportback, S5 Sportback, RS6 Avant, Q3, Q5, Q5 Sportback, Q7, SQ7, Q8, SQ8, RSQ8 and the e-tron GT.

Only the A6 sedan seems to be safe from this problem.

Despite the large number of models involved, only 473 cars are actually concerned by the recall in Canada and some of those might have already been repaired or have yet to be delivered.

Owners of the rest of the affected cars will receive a notice in the mail by mid-December and they will be able to have the fix performed at their Audi dealer.
