problem #2

Jul 192011


  • 1,020 miles


I was on my way to work and had entered our parking lot and was ready to pull into a parking space. As I pulled in and was at a stop, my car suddenly accelerated and I was unable to stop it. I started to turn the wheel to the right because there was a 2010 Ford Explorer that was parked in front but unfortunately I hit the back end of the car and pushed it at least 30 ft dead straight. My car continued going to the right and over a island and by the time I got it to stop the air bag had gone off. I'm not sure how this happened since I was stopped, there were two witnesses that saw my vehicle stopped and the next thing it accelerated. I know my foot was on the brake because I was stopped and ready to exit the vehicle but it would not stop. This is a brand new car only 2 months old with a little over 1000 miles. I have grandchildren that ride with me and after my vehicle gets repaired I would be affraid to drive this. I am thankful that other than bruises I am ok and that it did not happen on a major street.

Rogue 4-cyl

  • 3,030 miles
The contact owns a 2011 Nissan Rogue. The contact stated while driving in bumper to bumper traffic uphill and having his foot on the brake the vehicle began rolling backwards. He applied pressure to the brakes several times but it failed to stop the vehicle. In addition, he stated that while driving into the garage with his foot on the brakes the vehicle suddenly accelerated. He was able to stop the vehicle applying pressure to the brake pedal. The vehicle was taken to a dealer who was unable to duplicate the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the problem and referred him to the dealer who advised him to have a diagnostic test performed. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 3,030 and current mileage was 3,078. Updated 07/08/11 the consumer stated the vehicle was taken to another dealer and there was no matching of conditions at which the defect occurred. It was the consumers opinion that the diagnostic testing would not pick up the defective component unless the operating temperature reached the temperature the time of braking releasing. All the components that can release pressure to the pads should be examined, such as the sensors, anti-lock device, anti-skid device and the device that releases pressure to the pads. The consumer also believed the reason for dealer not finding the defect, was because the tires were over-inflated by the dealer. Updated 08/16/11 updated 08/23/11. The consumer stated the sudden acceleration occurred again as he was entering his driveway. The vehicle accelerated as he took his foot the accelerator and tried to apply the brake about six feet from the garage door, but the pedal went to the floor. Updated 04/17/12.
