2018 X Trail Intelligent Braking System (IEB)


Recommended Posts

I have recently purchased a manual 2018 Xtrail which is equipped with the IEB system which has been in the news a lot recently due to possible faults which have now been overcome with a software upgrade.

Anyway, I'm experiencing an issue which I am not sure is normal expected behaviour.

As I approach a car in front of me, on some occasions if I leave applying the brakes a little late, and the Intelligent brake system warns me that I am approaching a car with a visual warning and a sound notification.  As I start to apply the brakes, the intelligent system on some occasions then also applies more pressure on the brakes. At this point I hear a loud grinding noise as the car comes to a halt.

The local Nissan dealer has inspected and said the noise is coming from ABS unit and is normal behaviour, but I am not sure if I am just being fobbed off, has anyone else experienced the same thing? Has anyone relied on the Intelligent brakes bringing them to stand still and hearing any loud grinding noises?

I've had a Nissan since 2014 with intelligent brake system , I have had the warning tone a number of times but never has it applied the brakes for me . Perhaps I am too careful a driver as I do try not to break the 2 second rule.

I  would never have the bottle to not brake in the hope that it stops the car for me . I have often been curious and thought about whether I could make up a dummy target to aim for that would not cause any damage if I hit it .But alas I havefar more important things to worry about such as what price is the San Miguel in my local co op and is it cheaper to drive the 5 miles to aldi and back . It works out that the 10 mile round trip is far more cost effective.
