Stellantis has issued a safety recall for more than one million vehicles in the U.S. with rear-view camera issues that could increase the risk of a crash.

Federal regulators said in a letter that the recall affects vehicles fitted with a radio software which may stop the rear-view camera's image from displaying, thus decreasing a driver's overall rear visibility.

The recall covers 2021-2023 Chrysler Pacificas and Jeep Grand Cherokees, 2021-2022 Dodge Durangos, 2022-2023 Ram Promasters and Jeep Compasses, Wagoneers and Grand Wagoneers, and 2022 Ram 1500s, 2500s and 3500s.

Dealers will update the radio software at issue for free, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. Owners of affected vehicles will be notified via mail on August 2.
