Automatic brake assist would keep brakes applied even after the driver released the pedal and the system on the 2011 was very sensitive. At low speeds, it would let go after a few seconds. At highway speeds, it would keep the brakes applied until the car came to a complete stop unless the driver pressed accelerator. I learned to touch the accelerator pedal if the automatic brake assist engaged and I needed the car to not panic stop. The 2015 was less sensitive, but still annoying. I have not yet had the 2019 engage so perhaps Nissan has reduced the sensitivity even more. I was not happy with the system on the 2011 because it nearly caused an accident when I had to brake hard to avoid an accident. I was almost rear-ended when the car continued to brake hard after I released the brake pedal--I hit the accelerator pedal in desperation and that disengaged the panic brake assist.LeftieBiker wrote: ↑Tue Jun 02, 2020 7:54 pmNow that I think about it, AEB is usually described as a low speed feature. Earlier Leafs have something like 'automatic braking assist' that slams on the brakes if the car thinks you are trying to brake hard, and won't disengage until the car has stopped. It will also, IIRC, engage at higher speeds - maybe up to 55MPH? It is not popular with those who have encountered it.
Heh heh. Dude. I’m 58 years old. I didn’t get where I am in life by ignoring others points of view even when they counter mine. My dad told me everybody has a story to tell and a contribution to make. I have found that to be mostly true...although there is no shortage of total nut jobs out there as well. .
That video showed it pretty clearly to be driver error (it started accelerating very aggressively AFTER starting to turn). Probably pressed the wrong pedal and panicked.cwerdna wrote: ↑Sat Jun 06, 2020 11:39 pmhttps://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... ge.195490/ has a pretty dramatic video.

This driver needs to lose his license for a very long time.
