My 2022 golf R has been having weird issues with the back up camera. Randomly as i back up, the camera gets blacked out and comes back on again. its random and will flicker.
Anyone else having this issue?

ALSO whats the best engine oil that I should use?

Yes I have the same problem with my R it happens very sporadically and it flickers to Black. When I brought it to the dealer they couldn't find anything wrong of course. They told me it may be part of the problem with the module for the head unit.

It's odd I see infotainment and camera issues being posted on the same and only days I see the exact same issue with my car.

I had the same camera issue happen yesterday for the first time ever. Once I turned off my car and restarted it in the driveway, the issue went away and hasn't occurred today. Just feels like there have been camera, infotainment, and sensor issues experienced by all on the same day. It's a bit ominous, almost like updates are being pushed out to our cars, but I don't think VW pushes out updates to our cars.

Thank you for this. If they say something about software I’m going to show this to them.
I'm sure there are issues that can be fixed with the software, but if the software is addressed and the issue keeps happening (and stuff like electrical shorts are ruled out), they're supposed to replace the entire camera module. It's an $800 part and took about 6-7 hours, so I'm sure it's not a repair they're anxious to make.
