The contact owns a 2015 Nissan Leaf. While merging onto a highway at 55 mph, the accelerator pedal became stuck which resulted in unintended acceleration. The contact was able to regain control by depressing the brake pedal. Prior to the failure, the vehicle experienced the same failure without warning. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 6,062.

Whenever we come to a stop for a traffic light or a stop sign, and the speed of the car is < 3 miles, we noticed that when we apply brakes, they do not get applied immediately. There is a sudden surge in acceleration before the car comes to a complete stop. This is very noticeable especially when we apply brakes to slow the car before a traffic signal or stop sign and also in bumper to bumper traffic conditions. As a result, we tend to stop the car atleast couple of meters before the stop line or the car in front to buffer the acceleration by the car. Thank you

problem #1

  • 700 miles
My 2015 Leaf S is 3 weeks old with less than 700 miles. I was descending an 8% grade hill in B mode with a sharp bend at the bottom. As I went to apply the brakes, the pedal went to the floor and B mode cut out. The car was now rolling down the hill and accelerating under gravity with no brakes and without B mode slowing the car. I was expecting to hit a brick wall at the bottom of the hill when suddenly, after no more than two seconds, the brakes and B mode came back on and I safely stopped. On reflection after the incident, it was as if the whole computer/electronics momentarily shut down and then rebooted. I didn't notice if the dash lights went off or not.
