173,000-Plus Audi, Bentley Vehicles Recalled for Faulty Rearview Display

173,000-Plus Audi, Bentley Vehicles Recalled for Faulty Rearview Display Volkswagen luxury brand Audi and ultra-luxury brand Bentley have issued two recalls related to the same issue, a software glitch that resulted in a blank display of legally required backup cameras. The problem includes more than 173,000 cars and most of the nameplates in the American Audi lineup.

The Bentley recall is limited to most 2021-22 Bentayga SUV models sold in the U.S. Affected Audi models include the 2021 A4/S4, A6/S6/RS 6 Avant, and A8/S8 sedan and wagon; A5/S5/RS 5 and A7/S7/RS 7 hatchback; E-Tron electric vehicles; SUVs Q5/SQ5, Q7/SQ7, Q8/SQ8; Model year 2021-22 RS Q8 SUV; and 2022 E-Tron GT EVs. A software problem causes a blank or black screen to appear instead of the rear view camera image when the vehicle is in reverse, increasing the risk of an accident.

Merchants will update the infotainment software for free. Owners will receive letters notifying them of safety hazards starting December 2nd.
