2013 Infiniti JX35: NHTSA Probe
July 30, 2012
The NHTSA is looking into two complaints from consumers who reported false application of emergency braking in the 2013 Infiniti JX35.
In one driver's case, the car brought itself to a stop in the middle of a bridge. Luckily, no accident resulted. He then drove the car directly to the dealership where they turned off the intelligent brake assist systems. After it happened to him again on the same bridge, he returned the car and was granted a refund.
Infiniti spokesman Kyle Bazemore in a phone conversation with Edmunds.com said We are aware of the two complaints to NHTSA. We are investigating the issue. As soon as we have made a determination, we will provide a comment.
These types of complaints could result in a recall. We haven't had any problems with our long-term 2013 Infiniti JX35 except for a rattling roof rack, which was replaced. We'll keep you posted as this story develops.
