#3616 of 3836 Is a late year Armada worth it?
Nov 12, 2005 (7:18 pm)
I've been reviewing alot of the noted problems with the Armada and I saw a couple of posts that Nissan has fixed the brake issue (note: I'm a huge Maxima fan, so I like Nissan products). I'm looking to replace my wife's Durango (POS) and the Armada has plenty of room for our growing family. Any thoughts on the proposed fixes that Nissan has put forward, whether or not they are on the 2005's that haven't been sold, and any recommended dealers in Northern Maryland?

Some 05's have them and some don't. I have an 05 and have had the brakes fixed twice. The second time was the charm. Regarding dealers, check Carmax outside of Baltimore (Whitemarsh). They'll probably have better prices and they're no haggle. If you care to venture down I-95, check out Herb Gordon in Silver Spring. Their prices rival Carmax.
#3618 of 3836 Air bag light Flash
Nov 30, 2005 (11:19 pm)
I am new to this site and I have just joined you.
I own a 05 Armada and I am happy with it. I bought it 7 to 8 months ago and the only problem I faced was the brake issue Which no longer exist.
Just 4 days ago, I faced a problem (it may not be a problem) where the air bag light (signal) in the main driver board is signaling (flashing) all the time. I checked the user manual and it mentioned that the light should be on for 7 seconds after you start your car. But in my case, it is on all the time.!
Any one faced the same matter?
I appreciate your feedbacks.

#3621 of 3836 Should I buy a new Armada?
Dec 18, 2005 (7:50 am)
I've read for some time about the various "quality" problems with the Armada (brakes and tires come to mind). I was shopping yesterday, and the Nissan salesman didn't know much about the problems(or didn't want to talk about it), but he also told me the Armada doesn't have a 60/40 split 3rd row seat nor power fold-in side mirrors both of which I thought were added in '06. He then proceeded to pull around a new '05 to show me as he was trying hard to sell the '05 and didn't seem to want to listen.....so I left. Because I like the size and style of the Armada, can anyone confirm if Nissan added these features for '06 and if they've fixed the brake and tire problems?

I would complain to the dealer about that jerk. He's exactly why many car sales people are considered reptiles.
Yes, the new Armada has a split-fold 3rd-row seat. As to whether all the problems have been corrected? I don't know. I would hope most of the problems have been addressed by now.
FWIW, the Infiniti QX56 was just rated the "worst SUV" because of all of the problems they were having. I'm not sure if it was CR, or who rated the QX. I just read that today, but I don't remember where.

The LE has the power folding mirrors. The 60/40 split 3rd row is std on all models.
The brake issues have been fixed, even on my 04.
It probably got worst SUV cause of the brake issues, however they have been resolved.....
#3624 of 3836 our problem with the Armada
Jan 02, 2006 (6:24 pm)
I posted this issue before but turned out in the wrong section ok, my wifes Armada is nice and we've had it since they came out, infact I bought the second one in Omaha, and ever since day one you could notice the rough ride, when you get up to highway speeds any little bump the entire rear half of the SUV shakes, specially if you're in the third row, that is constant vibration, I asked everyone with Armada in town that I run into, and it seems like the ones travel a lot say the same thing, and the soccer moms that drive it in the city has no idea what I'm talking about, so I've been looking and trying to find a company that makes airbags suspension kit but with no luck! do you know know of any company out there that I can call/email and ask if they do have a kit? thanks alot
