U.S. regulators studying Infiniti JX35 for emergency brake glitch
NHTSA is investigating about 8,000 Infiniti JX models from the 2013 model year.
DETROIT (Reuters) -- U.S. safety regulators have opened an investigation into Infiniti's new JX35 crossover on possible improper application of the emergency brake, the regulators said.
The probe is not a recall, but may lead to one.
The investigation is focused on about 8,000 vehicles from the 2013 model year.
Two consumers have complained "that the intelligent brake assist system inappropriately activated emergency braking autonomously bringing the vehicle to an immediate and complete stop," said a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Infiniti is the luxury arm of Nissan Motor Co. The JX35 is based on a new vehicle architecture that will also serve as the platform for the redesigned 2013 Nissan Pathfinder.Contact Automotive News
