2021-22 Ford Bronco
Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company
Number of vehicles affected: 47,046
Report Date: November 3, 2022
Issue: Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2021-2022 Bronco vehicles equipped with rearview camera systems and 8-inch screen displays. The rearview camera image may still be displayed after a backing event has ended. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, “Rear Visibility.” A rearview image that continues to be displayed after the vehicle is shifted out of reverse may distract the driver, increasing the risk of a crash.
Solution: The SYNC module software will be updated by a dealer, or through an over-the-air (OTA) update, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed December 19, 2022.
Contact: Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 22C27.
