#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.

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....

Could you tell me what year Armada you have? i had the 2004 and had problems with the brakes myself. Well kept on it and had Nissan installed the new brake kit. The original kits were recalled. After the new kit was installed I had been proceeding with the Ny state Lemon law and Nissan bought back my 2004. I re purchased a 2006. Contact your attorney general and find out what your rights are. Keep every service ticket and count the amount of times the truck was in for the same problem. being that you have 55K miles that could be a problem. You need to prove that the car is unsafe and or a lemon. Were you ever notified that there was a recall on the brakes and tow package? I really love the truck so if I have the same problem again, I'm really going to kick myself for buying it again.

I had the 2004 and the brakes were recalled, contact Nissan and tell them you need the new brake kit or your contacting the attorney general. After the brakes were cut 3 times you could have had the truck bought back through you states lemon law arbitration. I did, Now I have a 2006. Good luck.

I have never seen a full recall on the brakes, only a TSB.. I did however notice the calipers on an 06 Armada the other day and they looked significantly beefier than the ones on my 04. Asked my service manager and he said he has nothing about a recall only a TSB...Any Nissan Techs out there want to weigh in...

As a matter of fact, I do have an attorney....and filing under the lemon law act....I too contacted Nissan with little or no recourse....I am a little past the miffed stage...They (whoever "THEY" are) are so backlogged, I had to wait for over 2 yrs to get a court hearing. My goal is to have the 2006 Armada.
AAARRGGHHH !! I will be so glad when that bucket of bolts is outta my life !!!!

Go to the Better Business Bureau. I have my Armada in for the 5th time...less than 28,000 miles on it. This year, it's been in the shop in January, May and now August. We're waiting to go to arbitration. I want them to take the car back! All Nissan wants to do is a "band aid" temporary fix. I'm tired of taking this stupid car in. I'll never buy a Nissan again!
