After starting from a cold start (parked overnight) I noticed the brake pedal was soft and went almost to the floor. There was no prior sign of brake failure and the car still could stop, just not as quickly or firmly as normal. Car was taken to a repair shop who diagnosed a leaking master cylinder but there was no brake failure warning light. After the shop replaced the master cylinder and bleed the system they found another leak in the ABS controller/ECU module. An internal leak, and no repair is possible. The shop says they have spoken to Nissan and looked online but find no information about other similar braking system failures, no tsb's, no recalls. I find it very disturbing that two critical brake parts could both be leaking and failing, and the car showed no brake warning lights, no ABS warning lights, no indication of any problem while the brakes had obviously already failed. This is a fairly low mileage single-owner vehicle which has not been in any accidents and has been maintained properly. The failed parts (brake master and ABS controller/ECU are being held available for inspection.

ABS module failure. Needs replacement. In case of emergency, ABS, vdc and stability control are not going to control the vehicle. Also the tires lights warning and the brakes are on.

The vehicle rolls backwards when on an incline large or small. I have to press the gas and the brake as if I'm driving a manual in order to keep from rolling backwards. I had other SUVS and never even had to put my foot on the brake, the vehicle wouldn't move. I've taken it in to the dealer twice and was told this was normal for vehicles with cvt. My husband asked why his maxima didn't do the same thing since it is cvt and they didn't know.
