Tl* the contact owns a 2017 nissan rogue. The contact stated while pulling into her driveway, the vehicle unintentionally accelerated while the brake pedal was depressed. The brake pedal was depressed several times before the vehicle came to a stop. There was no warning light illuminated. The contact called fuccillo toyota of grand island (1974 alvin rd, grand island, ny 14072, (716)335-9646) where a cause was not yet determined. The contact was still awaiting a callback. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was informed of the failure. The failure mileage was 42,254.
Driving down interstate on nice clear day with minimal traffic, cruise control set at 70mph when suddenly the cruise disengages, warning light begins to appear on dash showing 2 cars colliding with audible alarm informing me that the front radar is obstructed. Cruise control will not work and any attempt to use cruise control is met with audible alarm and warning that front radar is obstructed. I stop, check all radar/sensors for debri... Everything is fine, no bugs, not debri, no obstruction. I restart engine, same warning appears before i even put transmission in drive. Start driving, same situation, front radar obstructed, cruise not available. After 10 miles or so the flasing light goes off, everything returns to normal, cruise control works properly. Car may experience this oroblem twice in hundred mile trip on perfectly clear day. Other times it may not happen at all on a 100 mile trip. When this does happen in heavy traffic the situation becomes dangerous quickly because the automated braking is disabled and if the radio is on it's easy to not realize the system is off until your speed is reduced significantly. I have had 2 close calls because of this - one with a car in front of me stopping abruptly and the system failed to maintain the selected gap between my vehicle and the vehicle in front of me so i had to veer onto the median to avoid a collision; the second time the cruise abruptly disengaged traffic behind me almost ran into me which caused vehicles behind me to have a close call. So far this problem has always happened on the highway or interstate, never in town. Sometimes when it is raining really hard the same warning light & audible alarm will sound, however cruise control remains operational as does the automatic braking. So it appears to work properly at times.
Twice on the highway if had issues where the car accelerated on its own and a few times it? S seem to lose power and than compensate and completely launch leading to a quick jerking motion. I? M afraid that it could completely stop on the highway or accelerate into something. Other than that there? S no issues but this is concerning since i? M always giving family member rides including a pregnant wife so it needs to be looked into in my opinion it could be a huge disaster if it happens to an inexperienced driver. *also i? M not sure of the exact date of when this happened. I just want to make that known since that? S one of the questions asked.
I RECENTLY PURCHASED MY 2018 Nissan Rogue IN AUGUST OF 2020 AND AS OF MARCH 2021, I'VE HAD 5 INSTANCES WHERE THE FRONT RADAR SYSTEM FOR THE CRUISE CONTROL FEATURE MALFUNCTIONED WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. THE FRONT RADAR SENSOR IS PART OF THE INTELLIGENT FORWARD WARNING SYSTEM IN NISSANS AND ITS JOB IS TO DETECT THE DISTANCE BETWEEN VEHICLES. THE SENSOR IS TIED TO THE CRUISE CONTROL AND EMERGENCY BRAKING SYSTEM. THE FAULT CONSISTS OF A FRONT RADAR OBSTRUCTION WARNING LIGHT MALFUNCTION ILLUMINATING LEADING TO THE DISENGAGEMENT OF THE CRUISE CONTROL FEATURE (IF ENGAGED PRIOR TO THE MALFUNCTION) OR THE CRUISE CONTROL FEATURE AND THE EMERGENCY BRAKING SYSTEM BECOMING DISABLED. ALSO, WHEN THE FAULT APPEARS, THE BRAKES ARE ABRUPTLY APPLIED BEFORE BEING RELEASED WHICH IS A VERY SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE ESPECIALLY WHEN DRIVING DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER AS YOUR RELYING ON THE INTEGRITY OF YOUR BRAKING SYSTEM. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO MY LOCAL NISSAN DEALERSHIP AND THEY MENTIONED THAT THERE WERE NO CURRENT RECALLS IN PLACE FOR THIS PARTICULAR ISSUE AND THAT THE SYSTEM WOULD NEED TO BE UPDATED WITH THE LATEST SOFTWARE UPDATE TO SEE IF THE PROBLEM IS CORRECTED. I WAS TOLD THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY APPROXIMATELY $150 TO INSTALL THE UPDATE TO THE SYSTEM, WHICH TO ME SHOULD BE COVERED BY THE COMPANY DUE TO IMPLIED SAFETY ISSUES. I WAS SURPRISED TO HEAR THAT A RECALL WAS NOT IN PLACE FOR THIS SYSTEM, CONSIDERING THIS HAS BEEN A KNOWN ISSUE SINCE 2014 AND YET THE NISSAN COMPANY HAS YET TO ISSUE ANY TYPE OF SAFETY RECALL FOR THE ROGUE MODELS, HENCE MY SAFETY COMPLAINT. I FEAR THAT IF THIS PROBLEM ISN'T CORRECTED SOON AN UNSUSPECTING DRIVER COULD GET HURT!
I was driving my vehicle, an when i would start from 1st gear my vehicle would shake when taking off. I had taken it in to the nissan dealership to have them take look at it. The tech had told me it was the transmission. I've had them log that info. Now it's future and that problem had escalated to where it still does the shaking but alot worse. Now it doesn't want to shift out of 2nd gear. At the time of me driving the vehicle i was on the freeway and the vehicle had slipped out of gear an it seemed as it came out of gear an dropped to a lower gear almost causing a major accident.
