675,000 Nissan Qashqai Crossovers Announced Announced Due to Brake IssuesApril 13, 2019
They say that the vehicles affected by this service company themselves slow down for no apparent reason. The fault is not the correct operation of the system of emergency braking AEB.
The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced that in orders of 675,000 copies of the Japanese Nissan Rogue crossover, which is known in the other car markets as Qashqai, a malfunction may occur in the emergency braking system (AEB). The car can, without a good reason for that – without any irregularities on the road, stop driving and stop abruptly.
According to a foreign publication Reuters, NHTSA is currently investigating the possibility of this problem, a total of 675,000 copies of the compact Nissan Rogue / Qashqai crossover, which were produced from 2017 to 2018 model years.
At least 87 complaints have been reported from owners of this crossover for unintentional inhibition of the Nissan Rogue.
“Automatic emergency braking is an important technological advancement in the field of vehicle safety,” said Jason Levine, executive director of the Center for Automotive Safety. “However, when he works randomly and suddenly stops a car for no reason, he endangers both the passengers of the car and any subsequent cars that may crash into an unexpectedly stopped car.”
In response, Nissan representatives said that they had already begun to investigate this problem, and turned to NHTSA and Transport Canada to solve it. The automaker has already notified all owners of potentially unfair Rogue / Qashqai crossovers in the US and Canada about the need to update the software.
