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!

I also have an '04 that is about to have its warranty to expire. I had trouble with my fuel gauge also, would fill it up and the sensor would only show about 7/8 full. Nissan put a new sensor in and now it works perfect. I also had trouble with my sunroof, when opening the operation was not a continuous smooth motion. The dealership said the motor needs to be replaced. Have you had any other challenges with your Nissan? Would love to share challenges so we can both get our warranty items taken care of before the warranty expires. All in all I am satisfied with the vehicle.

We have a 2004 Armada and only have 13,000 miles on the vehicle. We have had the vehicle in for brake problems 3 times and they took 2 weeks or more to fix twice. The brakes have gone out again, thank heavens on a side street and not a highway or busy street. It is sitting in our garage right now. We can't keep an SUV that we are afraid to drive. Each time the brakes have gone out we have luckily been either in a parking lot or side street. They just made this terrible noise and then "no brakes" and we just drove at a turtle pace home or to the dealer. Have just filed with the Lemon Law in Florida. We really loved this SUV for comfort and size but if you are afraid to drive it.....it is time to get another SUV. With only 13,000 miles on it....this is ridiculous. I would hate to think what may have happened if we had been on a busy street or going 60+ miles instead of 15 miles an hour when they went out each time. It is really a scary thing!
