As of yet, the rear vision camera is not mandatory; but it looks like it will be by 2014 and most manufacturers are installing them now. The 2010 Terrain has one and needs one. What is my warranty for if not to cover within the specified time a defect????
GM has issued Service Bulletin PI0385 to cover all GM vehicles from 2008 through 2012. They have an enormous liability issue that they are trying to avoid. Rear vision cameras save the lives of children!!
I am polling GM owners and others to verify the extent of the problem -- the dealership is great but on this issue they take direction from corporate office.
And, GM is not offering any explanation. I believe becasue they installed inferior cameras and have a sensor problem.
Let'* see when the recall begins on GM'* rear vision camera (their version of the Toyota floor mat!).
Let'* help each other to get this safety issue addressed!
