Nissan Makes Car Recalls

November 21, 2014

nissanCar manufacturers are increasingly becoming conscious about the quality of cars that they sell to their customers. It is for this reason that Nissan, one of the biggest car manufacturers in the world, recalled over 6000 of their Infinity hybrid cars. This is after the company discovered a fault in the acceleration system of the car. According to the company, the fault was caused by a bug in the software system. The company posted a comprehensive report about the problem on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

Nissan critics have hit the company hard on the recall. Most of them claim that the problem was not a surprise. According to Kyle Bazemore, a spokesperson for Infinity Media, the company intentionally ignored the fault in the system. This is because the company did not put in adequate measures to ensure that the fault was eliminated before the car went into commercial production. According to Kyle, the vehicle is able to pull out of the exit fail-safe mode and this leads to continued acceleration, although this can be overcome by the normal application of the brakes in the car. The possibility of this happening was discovered during numerous lab tests that were done by the company; however, the company chose not to act on the problem. Rather than taking the appropriate action, the company chose to go ahead and release the cars into the market as scheduled. It is therefore inaccurate to state that the fault in the system was unforeseen.

Car owners have also been complaining about these cars. One of these car owners recently told the car safety agency that this car was simply a menace in the roads. According to a complaint filed by the owner in the company website, the car feels like it is accelerating on its own. The owner further claims that he made numerous complaints to the car dealer and was told that the problem was not replicated in other vehicles. It is sad to note that more drivers have experienced the same problem. The dealers had resorted to telling concerned car owners that this is a normal hybrid car problem. However, in truth, it is a problem with the car and the manufacturer.

According to Nissan, the company learned about the fault in July and was able to trace the problem down to a programming error. The company finally made the decision to do the recall in September and it is still ongoing.
