    2024 Lincoln Aviator Backup Camera Recall: Affected Vehicles

    The Lincoln Aviator camera recall includes Lincoln Aviator SUVs manufactured between October 19, 2018, and April 25, 2024. The fundamental problem resides in the APIM, which may show the camera image flickering or incorrectly when subjected to electromagnetic interference from cellphones.

    When the cellphones are in use, have poor signal strength, and are kept in the console or cup holders, the connectivity problem is most noticeable. Lincoln notes more than 478 owner complaints about flickering and warped backup camera images.

    To find out if your vehicle is affected by this recall or any other ongoing recall, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) provides a recall check service on its website.

    If no recall appears upon entering your vehicle’s 17-digit VIN, it indicates the absence of any current recalls. Given the frequent issuance of recalls by automakers, we highly recommend checking if your vehicle is included in any open recalls, especially if you own a 2020 or newer vehicle.

    Lincoln Aviator Backup Camera Blue Screen? Get Help from the Lemon Law Experts

    If you’re a Californian dealing with backup camera issues or other electrical system-related defects in a new or used vehicle, you might have a valid claim under the state’s lemon laws against Ford Motor Company. These laws provide avenues for eligible individuals to seek vehicle repurchase or replacement.

    Under the California Lemon Law, also known as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, the manufacturer has the choice between repurchasing or replacing the vehicle, reimbursing all expenses associated with it, including down payments, monthly payments (inclusive of taxes and fees), and registration renewal.

    A lemon law repurchase, often termed as a refund is where the auto manufacturer refunds all monies spent on the vehicle including the down payment, monthly payments, taxes and fees minus a usage fee, which is a value assigned to when the vehicle was driven trouble-free.

    The usage fee is basically the value of the vehicle before the problem arose, calculated from the time of purchase until the first repair attempt for the issue deemed lemon-worthy.

    A lemon law replacement is where the lemon vehicle is swapped for one that is substantially similar.  Here, the consumer will be responsible for any usage fee and difference in price.
