2011 Infiniti M56: That's Weird

December 28, 2011

I noticed the IBA (Intelligent Brake Assist) light come on in the Infiniti last weekend as I was whipping the car around a corner. The light flashed on and then off and I noticed it out of the corner of my eye.

There are two and a half pages of the M's owner's manual dedicated to precautions on the IBA system, why it might fail to operate and what might cause the failure. It's all lawyer speak dedicated to affirming the idea that this isn't a technology you should rely on to stop the car. That, it turns out, is still up to you.

Whatever.

The light came on. Could be a dozen reasons why, none of which seem to matter since it turned off immediately.

The car is still awesome.
