 Description of the problemWhile driving, the backup camera came on. All the functions on the stereo were not working. This is the second time where the stereo malfunction. I took it to the dealship and was told there is a recall. When asked if i would be notified, i was told no. To find out about he recall, i had to bring the vehicle in. I check all the online databases, there were no documentation or any information about a recall. I don't think this is fair. What if the electrical wiring caused other issues? Also, what breaking slightly on a downhill, the abs locked up on me for a second causing my vehicle to lunge forward. Luckily, there were no cars behind me. Like i said, it was only for a sec but it was still not normal. *js
