AEB systems on 2017-2018 Nissan Rogues malfunctioning

Ohio readers may be concerned to learn that the automatic emergency braking, or AEB, systems on some 2017-2018 Nissan Rogues appear to be malfunctioning, according to an automobile safety group. As a result, the vehicles could come to a sudden emergency stop and cause a serious car accident.

The Center for Auto Safety says that the AEB systems on more than 800,000 2017-2018 Nissan Rogues have the potential to perform erratically and come to sudden, unnecessary stops, endangering the occupants of the Rogue and the occupants of nearby vehicles. CAS has received at least 87 consumer complaints regarding the issue. For example, one New York owner reported that his or her Rogue came to abrupt stops in the middle of the road and on railroad tracks. To correct the defect, some owners have started manually disabling the AEB system each time they start their vehicle. While this eliminates the risk of any malfunctions, it also eliminates any safety advantages the system provides.

CAS says the defective AEB systems present an "unreasonable" threat to public safety, and the organization has petitioned the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to formally investigate the defect. Meanwhile, Nissan has issued a technical service bulletin to dealerships regarding the problem.

Consumers injured in motor vehicle accidents may have cause to file a personal injury claim seeking compensation for damages. This type of claim is typically filed against negligent drivers, but it can also be filed against negligent automakers in cases that involve defective auto parts. An attorney could assess a victim's case, help gather evidence supporting a claim and file the lawsuit in court. If the lawsuit is successful, a victim could be awarded compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other related damages.
