#3644 of 3836 Is this a dead site?
Mar 13, 2006 (6:39 pm)
When I bought my 04 Armada, I was on this website every day to see what everybody had to say. There were good things and also bad things equally. I can say that brakes were the biggest issue with a (people were calling it a resonance problem). I had the brake problems which Nissan fixed for now, but never this ear pulsating problem.Decided just recently to come back to the site to find if anybody has a Thule or Yakima hard roof carrier on their vehicle. Both big manufacturers say they do not recommend any hard box installation. HELP! Two people replied on another site but sounded like older boxes. Any body with new installations? By the way, anybody see the 2006 consumer reports auto issue? OUCH!!

I found the main reason they don't recommend the hard boxes, is due to the crossmembers of the roof rack are spaced too far apart. I had a Sears 20 CF box that would not fit for that reason.. I drilled a couple of new holes in the box to make it fit, but it really seemed to flex in the center. I later bought a Yakima Mega Warrior with the extension and use a tarp and have been very happy with it.
#3647 of 3836 Extended Warranty Question
Apr 02, 2006 (10:42 am)
We have a 2004 Armada and have not had many problems with it whatsoever. We did have the break fix but that is it. Because of all the other problems that I have read about with this model, I would like to purchase an extended warranty to be on the safe side. Can anyone suggest one and also how long do they last and what is good price for one? Tks

Well, we thought we might be missed with the whole problem issues. We had the brake fix or so we thought and a month later we were in a parking lot and the brakes just gave way. The peddle went almost to the floor. Drove a couple miles an hour to the dealership. Let it for 3 days. Picked it up and drove maybe 20 miles in 2 days. Sat for a week while away. Once again, in a parking lot and breaks went out. It has now been at the dealership for a week. We will see how it is on Monday. Can anyone tell me what we need to have them do so it doesn't happen again and is fixed?
#3651 of 3836 2002 Nissan Armada

I have a 2002 Nissan Armada. I just got my brakes fixed for the 5th time. Anyone else keep having these problems? I'm so tired of taking my car in...what a inconvenience! I leased my car and can't wait to get rid of it. I wonder if there is any way to get out of the lease with these problems. It rattles so much that my husband doesn't want to drive it.
#3652 of 3836 Can you get extended warranties after your goes out?
May 16, 2006 (5:27 pm)
We have just recently had the brake problems with only 11,000 miles on the Armada. Will Nissan honor the brake problems after the warranty goes out since it has been a recall and constant problem? I was wondering if not, if it would be wise to buy an extended warranty and the cost.

I was told that I won't have to pay for brakes....period. They will replace them for free everytime they go out. I just get tired of having to take my car in so much! I never even received a recall notice from Nissan.
