#101 of 687 Get Nissan to buy back the Car
Apr 26, 2005 (2:39 pm)
I have a 2004 4X4 Off Road Armada I have had nothing but problems with this car from the windows, brakes, roof, inside lining and doors. I have taken my car back to nissan more than 10 times. I am currently in the process of getting Nissan to buy back my car. They told me that it will take 30 days for Nissan to decided if they should buy back my car. If that does not work I am getting an attorney for the CA Lemon Law. I think that there is power in numbers and I think we should all ban together to get Nissan to buy back all of our cars. Think of all the time you have taken off work to take your car back to dealership only to find out that it has not been fix. I am tried of all the lame excuses if you did not make your payments on time I know that Nissan would not be as patient Lets get together and see what we can do.
#102 of 687 Borla Cat-Back Exhaust system
Apr 26, 2005 (9:20 pm)
I purchased my 05 Armada LE in mid Febuary and now have 3117 miles on and no problems. The only thing I would like to get is a Borla Cat-Back Dual exhaust system. Every nissan parts web site I vist they were all on back order. So I'm asking does anyone know where I can purchase a Borla cat-back system with out
having to wait for about 4 to 6 weeks. I sure would appreciate the help.

Have you tried Borla's website? www.borla.com You can buy it online and take it to the muffler shop of your choice. Or you can do it yourself if you are so inclined. It's not difficult at all if you've worked on cars before. I hope you find it. It looks great.

I tried the Borla website and also called Borla Monday and they told me that they have 4 to 6 weeks of back orders for other stores and shops . And the guy
I spoke to said the system is selling real fast . As soon as they get to the outlets
they are sold. I also have a friend that owns a muffler shop tring to get the cat back
system for me because the muffler shops will get it faster.
So thanks for your reply and the system does look great.
#105 of 687 Armada 04 issues
May 02, 2005 (11:42 am)
I have bought '04 Pathfinder Armada in October 2004. Love the feature and how it drives. I have 5,000 miles now. The problems I have are mostly interior:
- the driver and rear passenger rattles. The dealer has replaced the driver's mechanism, and the rattles stopped. with do the same for the other door
- the overhead DVD panel started to rattle in about 2000 miles. The dealer has replaced the panel, but the sunroof cover got stuck during the repair. They had to replace the whole interior ceiling. We found 28 issues after the repair, and the problem wich the rattling overhead panel still exists... The dealer fixed 28 issues in 7 days, while giving us a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder loaner... The Pathfinder had 4,000 miles on it and rattled even more than Armada...
I do not know how many times we will be fixing the problems after the dealer's repairs (rattles, door rattling etc). We already spent about 2-3 weeks in repair.
Is this car a lemon?

I got the new 'brake judder' fix this past last week, and today got a flat rear tire. When I took it off, I noticed that the rear rotor was the same old rotor, as you can see where it has been worn down from the previous 4 times it was turned. Can someone help me? Was the fix suppose to be 4 new rotors, or just the front two?

The fix is for new front rotors, new front pads, new bolt kit for the front (no calipers like people keep saying), and rear pads only. That is what my dealer said. He read it off from something he had from Nissan. I have been waiting and waiting for the fix and am going to call Nissan today. I lose count but think this is my 4th or 5th fix. I couldn't wait any longer and had to have the front rotors turned again to get me by as I couldn't safely drive the vehicle anymore. I have never had one to get so bad and waited a month for the rest of my parts but they never came in. I am one of the first buyers of the Armada (bought in Nov 2004) and so you would think after all the problems and how many times this thing sat in the shop I would get them ealier than the newer customers. How wrong I am. THere is no loyalty and they don't care if you come back or not. The new American Nissan company is bad. Just get used to it. I wouldn't buy a skateboard that came out of that Mississippi plant after going through what I have. Oh, yeah, I only have 22,000 miles.

I bought my Armada last May and will be taking it in for the 4th brake job to fix the juttering. I also pursued an attorney to have the dealership buy my Armada back. Their first offer was $2,000 to walk away and be quiet. I declined it and my attorrney has filed a formal complaint with the California Superior Court. This was filed on 4/27/04 and will hopefully get this resolved quickly. We'll see though. It's my first time in the process. I am very tired of dealing with this issue and having my family driving around in an unsafe vehicle. Good luck to all with the same issue! Let me know if you have also had any luck with this process.
