Having your brakes fail while driving can be a terrifying experience.
Car accidents caused by bad brakes result in serious, life-threatening injuries for everyone involved, and manufacturers are often quick to blame the driver instead of their defective brakes.
Unfortunately, thousands of these faulty brake systems may have been installed in 2009 Nissan Murano SUVs nationwide. And this isn’t the first time Nissan has struggled with bad brakes in their vehicles.
Symptoms of Nissan Bad Brakes
Nissan is recalling more than 86,000 of their Murano SUVs (model year 2009) to address a faulty part in the antilock brake system (ABS). If this part fails, it could take longer for the driver to come to a full stop. Your vehicle may be affected if you have experienced any of these symptoms:
- Difficulty braking
- Soft brake pedal
- Anti-lock brake failure
- Brakes lack resistance
- Increased stopping distance
- Brake pedal hits the floorboard
NHTSA Opens Nissan Investigation
In April 2018, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into brake-related problems with the 2009 Nissan Murano, looking into 14 allegations of crashes and more than 480 complaints in addition to reports of injuries.
