2011 Nissan LEAF Q&A
2011 Nissan LEAF Question: Does anyone else have the same computer/braking problem on their Nissan?
My Nissan Leaf (10,000 miles less than two years) has a braking issue, and has been in the Nissan dealership shop for 10 days so far (god help me on the bill!). It has never been in an accident or run over a curb. It seems to slide a little when you brake, and the brakes do not catch right away (1/2 second delay). Now the computer does not see that you have pressed the brakes AT ALL, so the car cannot be started. Nissan, and nissan USA have been unable to figure out what is going wrong, and as the leaf is a radically new model I cannot take the car to another service location, like an independent garage. Obviously the computer being unaware of the brakes is an obvious safety issue, so I want it repaired correctly, but after 10 days and no ideas, I am concerned that Nissan is clueless on this, or that it is a large enough item that it is scaring them. Has anyone else had a similiar problem? - patsiefe

I have a 2013 Nissan Leaf. The brakes failed this morning, and I got into an accident. Thank goodness no one got hurt, but I did run over a curb and a boulder and also a tree. I braked but the car kept going and accelerated. I was finally able to stop after pumping on the brakes, then I was able to park. Do you know if this is a common problem? My car is at the dealership. - Lisaokeefe
