The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating Nissan Motor Co.’s top-selling model after hundreds of drivers complained a safety system is prone to suddenly triggering the brakes for no apparent reason.

More than 840 Nissan Rogue drivers have complained to NHTSA and the company that the vehicle’s automatic emergency braking system activates when there’s no obstruction ahead, according to a notice about the probe on the regulator’s website. The agency said there are reports of 14 crashes and five injuries linked to the issue.
