The auto major was reportedly contacted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in late 2021 and 2022 regarding the reports of a blue image in the rear camera display in several affected Ford models. This was after the completion of the 2021 recall. This prompted the automaker to launch an internal investigation, which resultantly found a faulty rearview camera display in the affected models.

NHTSA reportedly launched an investigation in August 2021 after Ford recalled 620,246 vehicles in 2020 for another rearview camera problem. This investigation by NHTSA reviewed if Ford recalled the affected vehicles in a timely manner and if it recalled enough vehicles.

This is not the first time the US automaker issued a rear camera-related recall. In recent years, the automaker launched multiple rear camera-related recall campaigns. In the recent past, the car brand recalled 47,000 2021-2022 Bronco owing to a rearview camera image problem in the US.
