Feds try to determine why popular Nissan SUV suddenly brakes on its own

“All of a sudden it was like a stop … a hard stop and then it was just stalled, like it wasn’t going to move,” Brown recalled. “Things were flashing. A ‘warning malfunction’ and this little crash symbol. And all this time I’m on the highway, and I have to like struggle to get it to the side of the road. My heart was beating so fast, and I just didn’t know what happened.”

Brown told WTHR the same frightening experience – sudden, unexpected braking accompanied by a malfunction warning light on her dashboard – has happened at least three other times while driving her 2019 Nissan Rogue. She said it’s an accident just waiting to happen — especially while traveling at highway speeds.
