Yes, I'm having exactly the same problem. I started to notice it about 3 weeks ago when the truck had 14k. It now has 14800 and the service department from my local nissan dealer just told me they took it for a drive and couldn't hear it. I refuse to go pick up the truck until they drive it again. If need be, I'll drive the truck with the service advisor in the truck. Any chance you've had someone look at yours? If so, what did they find?
Other than the brake problem and now this squeak I love the truck. I had the brake problem fixed at 3500 miles and now the brakes squeak some. The service advisor told me there's only about 15% front brake pads left? huh??? At less than 15k...less than 12 if they replaced the pads when they performed the service bulletin about the brake judder... less than 15k and need new pads... does that sound right? I don't ride the brakes or drive it like a corvette. I have one of those so no need to.

I received a warranty letter from Nissan about the brake judder problem and the extended the warranty for the brake judder problem to unlimited mileage within the 36month warranty period. You can bet I have that saved in a safe spot. I had it fixed at 3500 miles. But just in case.

I agree with you, I had to give back 2 Armada's thru the lemon law of the State of Ohio- this SUV is a piece of junk. I have had my brakes replaced 7 times-window wouldn't roll hack up i had to ride thru a rain storm from Hilton head, SC what fun!!!!, the alternator went out, I have driven plenty of SUV's this is the worst. I will never drive another one again.

Update...just brought my truck home from the dealer. The service advisor found a technical bulletin about this problem. They are waiting on parts. i wasn't given the tech bulletin #.
Also, the service advisor was reluctant to work on my brake pad issue at first. I went one level higher and they presented the problem to Nissan. Nissan paid to replace pads, hardware and resurface rotor. No more brake squeal.
I see all these posts from unhappy Armada owners.. For the record: I'm very pleased with my Armada and the service recieved from my dealership.
I think that people are more inclined to post when unhappy than the rest of the Armada owners are. I don't know how many have been sold since 2004, but I'm willing to bet it's way up there. Just about everyone I've spoken with is very happy with their Armada.

It did take Nissan too long to fix the brake/rotor issue. I would have done the same thing with the lemon law had I bought one earlier. I got my 05 with a mfg date of Feb 05, also had the brake judder within 2400 miles. However, had the latest fix done about 8000 miles ago, and all is sill perfect, clean too. It seems this issue has been put to rest.

I have 8K miles on My '05 Armada, and besides having the brakes fixed once at 3500 miles, I have been very happy. I will say, that my prior car, a '99 Ford Expedition was by far my best car. I never had to take that car in for anything until 90K miles when a cylinder went out. I would have bought another one were it not for the fact that I wanted something different. If I end up with a dud Armada, which I hope is not the case as I love the car, I would buy a new Expedition in a heartbeat.

I Keep reading about all the unsatisfied people with their Armadas mostly about 2004 and brakes. I am looking at the 2006 and wondering if these issues are still out there. I would like to hear from both sides. Than ks.

#268 of 687 Re: Window Rattling/Brakes
Feb 05, 2006 (6:45 am)
Just had all 4 brake pads and rotors replaced after 11,500 miles. Dealer informed me that the rotors were warped. If you notice your steering wheel wobbling, time to bring it to the dealer. I was told by the dealer that Nissan has extended the warranty on the Armada brakes. I still can't get the dealer to repair the driver side window rattle. They have screwed with window stripping 2 previous times, only to have the rattle re occur several days later. Anyone know what needs to be repaired to eliminate window rattle? Any help would be appreciated.
