you're right about nissan .... the sad part is though, i doubt seriously whether the armada will make it to the 2006 (perhaps 2007 if their lucky) model year. with the way they are selling now, and with the fact that many of them, if not most of them, are a notch above pure junk, by the time they fix all the problems, use better quality parts, and have a trained work force....it will be too late for the armada. all we can hope for is that toyota comes out with a bigger engine in the 2005 models.

Sorry ksloan78. I'm not going to war with you on this forum. I enjoy reading about various armada owners with their individual updates on what happened to their vehicle..pos or neg. If you want to re-name this forum after you so you can do your preaching, that's fine. Your responses seem a little on the "fanactical side" and I expect the HOST to come on soon anyway to redirect. Relax...There are thousands (as I said before) of armada owners that took a gamble, like you did, on a new vehicle and fared extremely well. That being said, good luck to you and your preaching/warnings....as to all the other armada owners with interesting, unique updates, I and the silent majority appreciate your posts. Bowke28, it's nice to hear your conservative (other side) posts that are without emotion. You only live once.

Before I bought my Mada I visited this site and almost did not buy it due to all of the problems that some of the other Mada owners were having with their vehicles. I must say I am glad I took that chance because not only did I get it at a good price (which is almost unheard of in Hawaii) but so far it has been problem free. I have not heard of any resonance problems and have not experienced any shakes rattles or rolls

no one is asking you to go to war with me, you're the one that seems intent on silencing me on the problems i've had (and countless thousands of others)....and tell me one thing, what exactly do you enjoy reading about "individual updates on what happened to their vehicle..pos or neg" are you saying that you want to hear someone say "i drove to wal-mart today in my black le armada and nothing broke on it? that sure is quality reading and informatitive. you need to face reality...people post on this board for pricing info, and problems. yes the "newbie" will post to say what they bought and how they love it at that moment (just as i did months ago).
perhaps you and bowke28 should start your own board where you 2 can talk about all the posititive things about the armada (which will take you about 60 seconds) and not worry so much about us "emotional" people on here who can use this forum to rally each other against nissan and perhaps get something done about the junk vehicles we have been sold.

If you see postings you don't care to read you aren't obligated to respond and you may scroll pass them.
#2585 of 3836 Countless thousands?
May 17, 2004 (6:22 am)
Are 'countless thousands' of people really having major problems with their Armadas? KSloan, could we see some hard data to back this up? I'd seriously like to know how many Armada owners are having problems...but 'countless thousands'?
I also find you comment about the 60 seconds worth of positive comments a bit insulting to those of us that are enjoying this vehicle. Believe me, you have my sympathy if you are having the problems that you say you do, but it is my guess that you are in the minority rather than the majority. At least until I see some conclusive data otherwise.

i am not, by any means, condemning your POV about your disappointment with your vehicle. i just dont agree with going emotionally overboard about wishing people out of business and livelihood.
i will state it once again. YOU were the unlucky one...not the ones with good trucks being lucky. you are, unfortunately, the exception.
i work for a nissan/ford dealer in the midwest, and having driven dozens of armadas...one for over a month...i love the big gallute. ive never heard the famous resonance for myself, and i take issue with people saying its rampant when, between the sales and service depts., noone has heard about it.
i am the only one in the dealership that knows about it, because im the only one here that reads these posts.
i hope you can more thoroughly understand my POV now.
p.s. if you buy that $60k navigator, not only will you lose the $8k on the armada, but you will lose about another $20k on the navigator over the next 12 months. (we have a 2003 with 15k miles on it for $38.9k).
#2587 of 3836 No major problems yet

Ksloan. I understand your frustration,anger, and even wanting everyone to HATE Armadas so no one will buy them. If I had the problems you did I’d probably feel the same way. But saying all our NON problematic Armadas will be worthless sets off animosity and you must understand this also. Please state your case, so others will know of your problems and make an informed decision, but refrain from using inflammatory comments (even though you want to vent).
I will let people know that in my case I have had no major problems, other than a sunroof leak, which is now fixed. I now have 7500 miles on the car with no rattles, resonance, or brake problems (the most frequent complaints here). Negatives are dismal gas mileage (unfortunately to be expected with this size vehicle), and too much vibration, in my opinion, of the overhead DVD console. No noise with the vibration but I think I would get sick watching it…luckily, kids don’t seem to notice a problem though . I did have some window noise early on, but this seems to have worked itself out. No problems with that for the last four months. Still very happy with my Armada, and I will let others know of any other problems in the future.
