    Still waiting for recall notice on 2020 Lincoln Continental camera issue. Posted In Sept of 2022 and is n ow almost March of 2023. How long is this going to take?

  2. Tom Pearson

    I have the same issue. My dealer says parts still not available. It’s been over a year!

  3. Vicki McCall

    This is so ridiculous, if I had know it would take over a year to fix the backup camera problem, I would have bought a different car!
