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.

Whats the mileage on your Armada? My local delaership here in MN had replaced the overhead panel, by then broke the headliner and had to replace 20 many different things inside - now some panel became loose and I have to take to the original dealership that sold Armada to me.
The delaership that is close to me (Maplewood Nissan) basically gave up and could not fix the problems they created. I'm afraid the original dealer might not fix them as well. Is the lemon law different in CA?

I just took my Armada in for the 3rd time.
1st time- the emergency brake would engage all by itself- you would have to stop the vechile, put it in park and turn it off to reset it- hard to do when on the interstate. 15,000 miles
Fix- Bad censor
2nd time- had to push brake all the way to floor to stop-
Fix- Bad cable 18,000 miles
3rd- Vibration- need new brakes and rotors 24,000 miles
Nissan dealer advised me that the rotors on the Armada and the Titan truck are to small. New ones are being manufactured now.
Temp fix- They put on new pads and turned the rotors until the new ones come in which is now mid- June.
I was told this is not a recall- customers that complain about vibration and need new pads and rotors will be done under warranty. You will also receive a 3 year unlimited mileage warranty.
Does anyone way squeeky windows???? Mine squeek everytime you roll them up or down.

I guess it's what part of the country you live in that determines whether your dealer gets the new rotors sooner or later. I took my 05 LE (7700 miles) in for service and the brake issue. Mine started "acting up" at about 5500 miles and got progressively worse. The new ones, which are the new updated rotors with the other parts too, are great. I barely have to touch the pedal and this thing is ready to stop.

Just purchase a 05 Armada on 5/14/05. Brakes seems rock solid. The production date on the vehicle was 4/28/05. I hope that means the brakes are the new replacements. Thoughts??? Did anyone notice a difference between the replacements and the original brakes(even when they were new).

I got mine in December 04. To me, the new brakes feel better than the old brakes when new. They told me my rotors were out-of-round. So I guess they were oval. Or square even. My service advisor said that there's no guarantee these new rotors where going to last either. We'll see.

I just bough a 2005 LE Nissan Armada. Unfortunately I became aware of the issues shortly after. I am within 72 hours of purchase and also do not have solid papers signed as there was a mix-up with interest rate. I want out. The dealership is not being up front with me on the problem and the fixes. Can anyone refer me to a good attorney in arizona to assist? The dealership is saying they have a no return policy and I have to take the car. I am in process of filing an attorny general claim and have since dropped the car back off to them. Thanks in advance.

Having our SIXTH brake job done!! This is the New Updated fix, guess we'll see what happens. Definitely DOES NOT include calipers. The technician said that (calipers)is PROBABLY something else that will need to be addressed at a later date. Great!
