The rear view camera systems in some 2017 Imprezas weren’t installed with enough memory, causing the screens to go blank or freeze up. Subaru will recall more than 25,000 of the 2017 Imprezas to fix the issue.
While both situations are frustrating, a frozen screen seems particularly dangerous – it might give you the impression that the area behind you is clear, when it really isn’t.
As always, it’s good not to rely 100% on technology.
Don’t forget the tried-and-true “look over your shoulder” method. I won’t even judge you when you complain about how tight your neck is while doing it.
