Ford Motor Company is recalling 169,277 model year 2020-2023 Lincoln Aviators, model year 2018-2021 Lincoln Navigators, model year 2022-2023 Ford Transits, and model year 2021 Ford Broncos.

The rearview camera, or 360-degree view camera -- if equipped -- may not display a rearview image when the vehicle is in reverse.

Loss of the rearview camera image can reduce the driver's rear visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will replace the rearview camera, and update the software and wiring -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed October 2, 2023.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 23S48.
