Rogue (Nissan)

Apr 16, 2019

In a letter posted on April 12 by Executive Director Jason Levine, the nonprofit Center for Auto Safety said it found 87 complaints about unintended braking in the U.S. National Highway Transportation Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) database.
The Center for Auto Safety filed a petition with NHTSA seeking an official probe, saying that 675,000 Rogues from the 2017 and 2018 model years should be recalled.
In its petition, the center said that according to the complaints, the Nissan braking system can be triggered by railroad tracks, traffic lights, bridges, parking structures “and other fixed objects that do not pose a threat to the vehicle.”
“Many complaints indicate that braking is abrupt or forceful, endangering both the Rogue occupants as well as people in the vehicles nearby who are forced to avoid a collision with a suddenly stopped vehicle,” the petition letter says.
Nissan says it has notified all potentially affected customers of a software update that improves performance of the automated braking system, but has not acknowledged safety problems.
Levine said a recall is needed rather than Nissan’s service campaign because false activation of the braking system is a safety hazard, noting that some drivers are turning off the technology because of the problem.
NHTSA says that it will evaluate whether to grant or deny the center’s petition, and that other safety advocates and vehicle owners are free to petition the government to open safety investigations.
Nissan said it will continue to work with NHTSA and Canadian safety regulators on all matters of product safety.
