(Reuters) – The US Car Safety Authority examines reports of potential accidental braking in 675,000 2017-2018 Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. Rogue vehicles, it said on Friday.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it is opening a review of the deficiencies due to a request from the Center for Autosafety.
The Agency will look at reports of the vehicle's automatic emergency braking system that does not occur without obvious obstruction in the vehicle's path. There are no reports of damage or death in connection with the petition.
Nissan said it had investigated the problem to a great extent and after talks with NHTSA, as well as its Canadian counterpart, Transport Canada, had notified all concerned Rogue vehicle customers in the United States and Canada of a software update.
"As always, Nissan will continue to work with NHTSA and Transport Canada on all product safety issues," Nissan said in a statement.
Nissan is facing a class action on accidental braking problems in the US District Court in California covering Nissan and Infiniti vehicles sold since 201
