#348 of 687 Armada Roll Problems
Oct 12, 2006 (2:54 pm)
I have a 2004 Armada and here recently it was in Park and lunged or jumped foward hill still in Park. It crushed my wife between the driver door with both of her feet on the ground and a concrete pole. Has anyone experienced this with there Armada? Or is our SUV the only one. I see that there is definatley a Transmission problem Issue that needs to be addressed with Nissan. It has already had the complete brake job al round. Please if anyone is out there please let me know where my wife and I will conclude that we are not crazy?? Thank You

I have an early '06 with 19,500 miles, and while the truck has not been completely problem free, I've experienced no issues with the brakes. Before I bought mine I did hear about the roof and brake problems, but assumed they were a "first model year" type issues as two of my friends both have '05's and have not experienced either problem. Two of my co-workers bought '06's after me, and I checked with both of them, neither has experinced any brake or vibration issues. One has 14000 miles, the other 9000.

My brother has an '05, and over the weekend we put new front pads on at 31K miles. This seems more than reasonable given that it's a heavy truck and he frequently tows a heavy boat (boat and trailer are about 7500 lbs.). He's never had any vibration problems, the pads were simply worn out as one might expect. The only issue he has has was that the driver's power window stopped working when the truck was a week old, and the dealer promptly replaced the motor. His only complaint is that the interior is spartan, and the truck overall is noisy compared to other full size SUV's. Based on his experience, my other brother bought an early '06 QX56 just about a year ago. He really piles up the miles as he is an outside salesman, and at 22K miles he has has no brake issues either. The only problem he ran into was the check engine light coming on. The dealer did fix it although it took two visits for them to get it right. He loves the truck although his recent gas bills have been a killer.

Walinares, it's a shame that you have had such bad luck with your truck, but given that there are plenty of people who are more than satisfied with their Armadas, I don't think you should be urging people not to buy them. Why would you be telling people that two years from now they absolutely will regret their purchase when you know that plenty of us are happy with ours, and there seems to be a lot of indications that the quality is improving significantly? Just state the facts...some of us have had very positive experiences with out trucks, but others have been very dissatisfied. And don't put down all Nissan vehicles just because of your experience. Sure, Nissan has had some issues, but the vast majority of customers have been very satisfied with their vehicles. If that weren't the case they would be out of business. It's easy to read right thru your posts and see that you only motivation is to get revenge on Nissan...it simply won't work because everyone sees right thru it.

The silent majority finally speaks out! I've never posted here before, but have been following this thread for about a year. I have an '05 that I use for my business, lots of miles, just turned over on 60,000 last week. When my truck had 27,000 miles, my brakes started vibrating like many other people have reported, and I assumed it was just time for new front brakes. I was not aware of the brake issues at the time, and I was amazed that the dealer replaced the pads and rotors...for free! It's 33,000 miles later and the second set of pads still are not quite ready to be replaced. I've had no other trouble with my truck yet whatsoever! In fact, I've been so happy that I bought my wife an '06 last Christmas. She has 13,000 miles now, and we have never even been back the dealer with it, not even once. Perhaps we've been lucky, but I've recommnded the Armada to a number of people, and a business friend just took delivery of a new one a few weeks ago.
