Acceleration delay is a safety issue

For my truck? Both.

For the recalls? Doesn’t matter. Any delay at anytime.

My truck seems to be just fine, very little lag. The most I’ve experienced was about 2.5 seconds(timed with a stop watch) and that was after braking down to about 25mph from 45 then immediately mashing the pedal to the floor. By the way if you haven’t noticed mashing the pedal to the floor is when the worse delay will show it’s self. So if you put yourself in those situations that you have slam that pedal to the floor to save your ass you won’t like this truck or most new vehicles for that matter.

Aisin or Nissan sure won’t put out any information on the torque management control sequence that’s being used. I can’t find anything from any manufacturer, but I have heard that torque management is now being used to «ensure passenger comfort and experience» in newer vehicles. It’s not just a mechanical nanny anymore. They don’t want people to be thrown back into the seat or slammed up against the door. How do they do that? Monitor the steering position, decel/ g force sensor, wheel speed and everything else and they know exactly what the vehicle is doing. They control the torque during quick changes from decel to accel, accel during cornering and other situations.

It would be nice if I could drive one these trucks with the 3-5 second lag and compare it to my own. I really don’t know if it’s truly different driving styles or the lag is really different between trucks. If the lag does differ between vehicles what could be the cause? My guess would be variations in decel/ g force sensors? Im sure a dealer could monitor these sensors and log what happens during these conditions.

With the outlined comment in the quote you are clearly not grasping the situation here. Stop assuming that only the person driving a vehicle with acceleration delay could be responsible for an accident, or that it must be because they are putting themselves in unsafe situations.

Clearly that is not the case. No one is saying «I hate this delay because it doesn’t let me cut off traffic during a left turn» or «I hate this delay because I can’t dart between two vehicles approaching at high speeds» or «I hate this delay because I keep loosing street races».

What you are hearing is «I hate this delay because I cannot predict the actions of other drivers, and should I need to accelerate to avoid an accident I will not be able to.» or «I hate this delay because when I went to cross traffic on a divided highway it left me sitting facing oncoming traffic, unsure of when or if it would accelerate again» or «I hate this delay because I fear that when I pull out into traffic it will unexpectedly stall for an unknown amount of time and I may pose a risk to other drivers who try to avoid me.»
