Nissan Automatic Emergency Braking System Stops Short of Expectations

Every driver knows how frustrating it is to have their front seat passenger dramatically grab the door and stomp on an imaginary brake pedal when they think the driver isn’t braking fast enough. Nissan defect attorneys have learned of something even more frustrating—allegedly unpredictable automatic emergency braking systems in multiple models.

A proposed class action lawsuit claims the Nissan automatic emergency braking system is itself a “safety hazard with a mind of its own” rather than the safety feature it is intended to be. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that the automatic emergency braking system-- also called forward emergency braking in certain Nissan models--can:

  • engage in the absence of obstacles due to faulty front distance radar sensors
  • deactivate with dashboard warnings illuminated
  • cause vehicles to suddenly stop or dramatically slowdown in the driving lane causing a safety hazard.

The lawsuit further alleges that technical service bulletins regarding the issue prove Nissan knew about the system’s problem since at least 2016, and that despite that knowledge they haven’t issued an auto recall, solved the alleged radar sensor problems, or offered customers and reimbursement.

The lawsuit class includes former and current owners of multiple models of 2015-present Nissans including Rogue, Rogue Sport, Murano, Altima, Maxima, Armada, Pathfinder, Leaf, and Sentra vehicles.

If you live in New Jersey or Pennsylvania and have a question about an auto recall or feel you might be driving a lemon because your new or relatively new vehicle is constantly in the shop for the same stubborn repair, Timothy Abeel & Associates can help. Depending on the nature of your problem, you may be entitled to a full refund of your down payment, trade-in, monthly payments and taxes, or a brand-new car or a cash settlement. Stop getting the runaround from your dealer. Contact us today for a free consultation.
