I seem to be having the same problem. I've read the other posts and no one sounds like the problem is fixed,sometimes it stutters to start sometimes it dosent start at all, but the worse is while driving and i loose my power brakes and steering very dangerous.I dont want to take the car to the dealer since my warranty is up and i dont trust them, im sure they will give me the runaround and i dont have the time or the money to deal with them.If you have any new information please let me know so i can try to fix it myself or maybe even see if its better to get rid of it. This is so frustrating im going crazy. It feels really bad sending the monthly payment for a car that i consider brand new and has giving me so many problems. I have 55,000 miles and have had pretty much every problem that everyone in here has had .please help someone

Please have it looked at. I was driving my kids in the car a few months ago and we lost the brakes. Now the same problems plus the 4WD Computer was "fried" not sure what that means and our ABS module went out. They still are getting error messages -- and what is even Better is Nissan doesn't care. They won't admit that the car is not safe. My husband has had it....but we too have 55k on the car and it is falling apart. IF you dont' have it looked at it could cause an accident. We are going to see if Nissan will buy it back -- but NISSAN IS HORRIBLE WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE AND WILL NOT STAND BEHIND THE CAR. If the don't we are getting a lawyer and my husband has already started contacting media regarding this. I think Nissan needs to take responsibility before people start getting hurt!

Yes we had the same "low brake fluid" issue. Now they have found that it is much more serious than this. After 40k more miles the Booster system, ABS and 4wd is out. A mechanic we talked to said that it is because they probably used the breaking system off the Pathfinder without much change to accomodate the load of the Armada. SO, the break system after many miles will just completely fall apart -- while we are driving them. All I can say is my husband and I have been giving Nissan chance after chance and the problems just get worse. Get out of your Armada's and complain to Nissan -- get a lawyer if you have to -- but don't put your families at risk!

I can not give out any legal advice since I am not a lawyer. My friendly advice is to read up on Hawaii's lemon law and see if your situation applies. Since your "Lemonada" is only 19k it may fall under factory warranty even though you are second owner.
If that doesn't work there are laws in the federal area that could help you if Hawaii's laws are enept. For this you need a lawyer that practices in US district court. They can be expensive.
Sorry about your situation. Hope everything works out for you.

I would like to know what was the process you went through with the lawyer regarding the lemon law of the armada and what was the outcome.
#327 of 687 Re: 05 Armada Fuel Gauge problem [kidsdds]
Jul 17, 2006 (9:56 am)
I also own a Nissan Armada which is a 2004. It has been in at the Dealer numerous times for brakes, the temperature gauge not working properly, 5 times for the dashboard lights of which only half of them worked and now the fuel gauge. The dealer is telling me that all the tests show that nothing is wrong with the fuel gauge. Meanwhile every time I fill up I even try to add more gas even after the pump clicks 3 - 5 times. Still the fuel gauge does not even come close to the FULL marker.
I main concern now is what I will do when my Nissan Warranty is over!!!! I can only imagine what the bill will cost me then.
You know its bad when the Nissan dealers service managers know your first name and even the phone operator before you tell them its you!

My 2004 Armada SE rolls back when I am stopped at a hill...but when I press on the brakes it does stop.
Could be a transmission gear not working properly.
#329 of 687 Vents Close - Annoying!
Aug 04, 2006 (9:35 pm)
We noticed a problem this summer on the rear roof vents. With temps consistently over 100F, the rear air was used quite a bit. However, it is very annoying that all of the vents would abruptly close in the rear when turning the fan speed to highest. Manually re opening them did not necessarily keep them open all the time. We pretty much lost the ability to partially open and direct them. The vents are just way to loose. This is on a 2005 Armada mfg in Feb 2005.

Aug 07, 2006 (9:35 am)
I purchased my 04'Armada in January of 04'...nothing but problems ever since...I cannot even spend the time to explain how many times I had new brakes, rotors, etc...too numerous. I never received a letter from Nissan, but I did get an attorney in 01/05.
Since Nissan is so backed up with these issues, my court date is 03/07...
My vehicle is now out of warrenty, the TSB fix is crapola...I was told the warrenty was for 3 yrs from the date installed period...I am now told it was 3 yrs or 50,000 miles, I have 53,000 ,miles....
Now, I am having weird brake issues, when you push the brake petal, you hear SPRINGS poppin', and the brake light blazin'... NO one knows why... they initially said its because I need new brakes......I have had the rotors resurfaced this past May 06, this past Friday, 08/04, I am told I need a new set of brakes and the rotors resufaced again..now I have to begin paying out of pocket...
OOh gez, cannot even begin to explain what has fell out, broken up, cracked up inside the truck...I haven't had speakers since April 04'...I was told it was my fault...did not have the 800.00 bucks to repair...I went to another Nissan dealer to get a quote to humor myself, the price went from 800.00 bucks to 1285.00
Have you ever heard of a the steering wheel material color begining to rub off ? Witin a year ?
If I can only wait for 6 more months for this hearing....
