I'm not sure exactly what "Revised Sand interior color" means but it may help with the tearing leather. Unless of course, they simply made it lighter or darker.

Why can't they change the color selection? The choice of colors are lousy. Why can't they have a color like "Bronze mettalic" like on the pathfinder. Most of there colors are too loud. How can we chart the changes on the mechanical side??? Brakes, resonance,overall quality control,etc,etc.
P.S I heard that NISSAN is "over budget" for vehical buy backs model year 2004!! Guess that means that the quality issue isn't just me.

Does anybody know what the SE upgrade package is? I looked at the list of available options for the Armada SE and did not see it listed.

I completely agree with you about improvements on the mechanical side. Hopefully nissan will put something out about this. They are supposed to be test driving the 05's to test all the "fixes". Nissan needs to get this right or they will lose a lot of potential customers, including me. I am currently deployed overseas and looking to get a dependable vehicle for my family. The last thing I need is to buy a problematic vehicle. I do not think that dependability is too much to ask in a vehicle.

I doubt you'll ever see a press release regarding mechanical fixes. You may see something in trade papers or car mags about the success of the "200 Engineers" or a reporter may ask some manager or CEO about the fixes but that will probably be it. And I have no idea what the SE upgrade package is. Can't find it anywhere.

I just picked up my Armada for the overhead console fix and I was bitching.. My service writer showed me a Quest service order that had 13 complaints, 9 of which were recall items. I have a feeling Nissan is going right back in the Crapper and Renault is going to pull the flush handle...

keep it in perspective...
the ford focus had double digit recalls in its first year, and is now one of the most solid and reliable cars on the road now.
the ford escape also had lots of recalls initially, and is the most popular small SUV in the world, and has a better PPU (problems per unit) than even the CRV and Rav-4.
if ford can do it, i think nissan is bound to as well.

Just installed the Megawarrior w/ extension on my Armada.. Looks great and boy can it carry a ton of stuff....Got the whole thing at a great price at a co. called OSR Racks direct, if any one else is interested...As a matter of fact the price is cheaper than people on ebay were paying! ???
#3123 of 3836 Link to TSR's?
Sep 04, 2004 (7:25 am)
Somewhere on this forum I saw a link to a nissan site with complete descriptions of the TSR's (I least I think its TSR's). Would someone be so kind as to repost the link?
BTW picked up my LE with the tech package last nite, enjoyed the ride home, little noisy compared to my 99 Yukon

My error, I'm looking for the link to TSB's.
