Ford recalls pickups, cars with rear camera lenses

DETROIT – Ford is recalling more than 277,000 pickup trucks and cars in the U.S. because rear camera lenses can cloud up and reduce visibility for drivers.

The recall covers several F-250, 350 and 450 trucks as well as Lincoln Continentals, all from model years 2017 to 2020. The recalled vehicles have a 360-degree camera system.

Ford says the anti-reflective lens on the camera can degrade, causing cloudy images. The company says it has more than 8,800 warranty reports in the US due to the problem.

Dealers will replace the camera at no cost to the owner. Ford will notify owners by letter starting September 12.

Ford announced earlier this month that it plans to lay off thousands of workers.

The cuts will affect about 2,000 salaried employees and 1,000 agency personnel, according to a Ford spokeswoman.

They represent about 6% of the 31,000 full-time workforce in the US and Canada. Ford’s 56,000 union factory workers were not affected. Some workers will also lose their jobs in India.
