The nonprofit Center for Auto Safety filed a petition, Friday, April 12, 2019 with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to investigate automatic emergency braking on some Nissan Rogue SUVs, alleging the safety feature makes the vehicles brake when there’s no emergency. The group says about 675,000 Rogues from 2017 and 2018 should be recalled. Nissan says it has taken “field actions” to tell customers of a software update that improves performance of the automated braking system. The government says it will evaluate the petition.
