Versa 4-cyl

  • 62,520 miles
On 11/29/2014 I was I was traveling on a state hwy at 55 miles per hour at a mild descent in elevation in the rain while approaching a red traffic signal and intersection approximately 1/4 mile ahead. When I applied the brakes to slow down the pedal went flat to the floor, I reapplied at least five times over and experienced the same response. I then went to apply the emergency brake and reapplied the brake pedal simultaneously and at that time it was so overly sensitive that it over-broke and nearly caused a crash.
