Federal safety regulations require a rearview camera image appear on the screen when putting a vehicle into REVERSE.

In August, Audi discovered there may be a delay in the rearview camera response time, causing the automaker and supplier to open an investigation.

Engineers determined upon start-up of the infotainment system there are running processes that might hinder each other and cause a delay in activation of the rearview camera.

Audi says it isn't aware of any warranty claims or complaints about the rearview cameras.

Audi recall notices will be mailed December 17, 2021, and Audi dealerships will update the infotainment system software.
