I'm shocked that you didn't mention the armadas 317 hp and 395lb gt of torque (same as titan) for 2007! I read that last week but the link was removed so i can't post it. I think E85 is a waste. Nissan should introduce a diesel Armada and Titan. Add ULSD to the mix and it'll be great.
For the Acronymicly challenged like myself, Ulsd is
and only has 5-15% sulfer. Thats great when told the old diesel had 95% sulfer. Now you'll see waaaay less black smoke coming from it. I think a diesel version of the Armada/Qx56, Titan, Fx 35/45, Q45, Pathfinder and M35/45 would be a great idea seeing its only 4 engines(5.6v8, 4.5v8, 4.0v6, and 3.5 v6).
#3677 of 3836 Warranty Purchase
Aug 03, 2006 (4:46 pm)
I am looking to get the extended warranty on my 04 before the factory warranty expires.. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I called Nissan Consumer Affairs to complain about the brakes. My brake warranty expires in October so I told them that I'm tired of taking my '04 Armada in for a "band aid" fix. They are going to call me next week to let me know what they are going to do. I'm going on my 5th brake job and I only have 27,000 miles on it.....
Call them at 800-647-7261. See what they can do!!!

I took my 05 LE out on the beach at Assateague Island MD this week. It performed well (i.e. I didn't get stuck ). There were a few Titans out and one other Armada. Also lots of Chevys. My question for you off-roaders. I kept mine in 4 wheel drive high, which the manual says is fine for sand. Anyone with experience have other recommendations? I'll certainly be going back before my yearly pass expires.

Did you air down your tires at all? That helps on some (most?) beaches.

Yes. Park Rangers recommended 15 psi but the regulars said anything between 15 and 20 would be ok which is where I had mine, 17 to be specific.

Just be careful. I've had my '04 Armada in the shop for brakes 5 times. I have less than 28,000 miles on it! It's been in the shop three times this year (it's there now!). It went in the shop in January, then May and now August. The first time it went out on me was at 18,000 miles but I hear 15,000 is pretty much when they start going out. My brother in law has a Titan...he's going on 3 times for his brakes!! The brakes will grind and the steering wheel will shake hard! I don't drive long distance because I don't know when it will go out.

Good to see another Armada out on Assateague... I go there all the time.. Will be there again in a couple of weeks. The only other thing I can add is, I turn off the VDS switch, to keep the the brakes from chattering.. I find it really isn't that helpful in deep sand and the noise gets annoying.
If you are going to go there a lot, get the power deflators.. They are a godsend. You just install them on all 4 tires in they will stop at a preset PSI... I usually run around 18-20..
I get out there early on the weekends and set up camp.. Screen enclosure (for flies and sun) , portable outhouse (I have 3 small kids) from Sportsman guide. I have been going there for several years and I love it...
