I would like to know how long was the wait time for the rotors. I bought my Armada in January, 2005 and after the first 2500 miles I found out I had warped rotors and that the new ones were on back order, this was in May. My rotors have been cut once since then and they need to be cut again. I like my Armada but I do not like the feeling of being put on hold by Nissan. I am very disappointed with Nissan, I made my purchase based on the success my brother and husband have had with their Nissans, they have owned their cars for more than seven years. I believe this will be my first and last Nissan!

I received mine a couple of months ago or around that. My friend asked 3 weeks ago for his and they told him 1 week. He never got a call so called today and they said they had 18 people ahead of him so there is no way to know how long he would have to wait. I waited for 1 1/2 years. I got mine in Nov 2003. Seems to work but after waiting so long, you lose your love for the vehicle for sure. Not counting all the other problems this thing has. Good luck and join the crowd. This should be an out and out recall. It is ridiculous that it isn't.

No wait for me. I drove in on a Sat. last month, expected a cut, instead got the whold new system. Service manager said he just got 50 sets in. No dust!

This is an edited posting which has been revised and reposted with the sincere desire to not "solicit or promote any products or services, self-promote, or implore readers to take actions that are intended to further a personal purpose." I do have a suggested solution that proved successful for me however the rules of this forum don't allow that I provide it to you directly through the forum.
I won. I sued Nissan over my 2004 Armada brakes, center console, electrical, windows not working, etc. The BBB Arbitration was a total joke as their auto program is funded by the auto industry. It cost me nothing. My lawyer won and Nissan bought the truck back and gave my money back - $8040.00 which included my down payment. I was responsible for .20 a mile only.

Are you still having problems with your 2005 Armada? Have you reported the problems to the dealer?
#182 of 687 Brake Squeal
Aug 02, 2005 (9:52 am)
I finally have a brake issue with my Mada.. I have about 16K and the brakes are beginning to squeal like a stuck pig...I am guessing that the pads are worn and and these are the screech bars... Back to the dealer again...
BTW does anyone elses vents sound like the door at the haunted house when you change how the air is coming out. When I switch settings (upper to lower vents) and a couple of minutes after you shut the truck off and they all close it sounds like a door with a rusted hinge...

Hey I also got an 2005 SE Armada in May. I'm just wondering what kind of brake system they put. Do you have to pay extra or the Nissan would do it for free? How much? Thanks.

No, it's free and guranteed free fixing for your first 3 years of ownership. Even if you have 50k miles at 2 years, still free to replace all until you reach your 3 year purchase anniversary. Nissan did issue this in writting, just ask your service manager for a copy. New, more durable front rotors, better front and rear pads. I don't know who the mfg is, but it's specifically for Nissan Armada/Titan. I'm sure there's no better out on the market now that Nissan ran out of options. It's costing them for this, but certainly less than buying back a few boatloads of Armadas and dealing with legal issues afoot.
