Toyota is recalling a popular SUV due to a safety concern.

Certain Rav-4 and Rav-4 hybrids have back-up cameras that can malfunction. They don't always engage when the cars are in reverse, which can lead to a crash hazard if drivers aren't checking their surroundings, the company says.

Toyota is notifying affected owners. The company will replace the faulty cameras at no charge.
