(See 304)It has been quite a while since I posted, but here goes. After the service dept. at my selling dealer priced me almost $1500 for a repair, I took my 2004 Armada to another dealer (#2). I told #2 about all the doubts I had about the bogus diagnoses I had been getting. I told #2 to take the time necessary to properly investigate my complaints...primarily the stalling of the engine while driving, and a popping noise when I turned the wheels sharply at low speed. After 9 days of careful inspection and considerable driving of my vehicle #2 found the problem with the stalling of the engine was the FUEL PUMP!!!.

Could you Please get in contact with me about your situation with your Armada Rollback problem. My Aramada did the same thing but went foward as well. If you still have the lemon please personally e-mail me at RJLurchaol.com. Thank you and hope to here from you. I also have contact the DOT/NHTSA about the problem. Thanks, jason

I have a 2006 Armada. In the sand (I live in the middle east)I get a grinding noise from the front left when I turn to the left.
Dealer says it's 'normal' ..never had it in my Patrol.
He checked all the bearings (vehicle had 1500 miles on it when i first noticed it)...
Any ideas? Is it normal? ..can't see why.

Doesn't sound normal to me. The grinding might be normal if you were driving it on dry pavement. I'll give it a shot with my Armada and report back to you on it.
Where in the middle east are you?

Try turning off the VDC and see if it goes away.. I go to a drive on beach with deep sand and the VDC which sounds a bit like grinding when it kicks in (usually when you are starting a turn in the sand) gets quite annoying. I just turn it off.

I'm in Doha. Been here about 1 year..quite enjoying it. Nice to go into a supermarket and leave the truck running 'cos it's too hot ..and still finding it there when I get back out!

Thanks I'll certainly try that. What's your experience with the Armada in the sand? I had a Pajero in Dubai, and even though it was a bit underpowered I managed to get around in the desert quite well.
I've been invited on quite a few desert drives here and am a bit nervous. The Armada seems so heavy and clumsy.... we bought it for my wife so she'd have lots of metal around here while driving here.
Again, thanks for the feedback.

He said it was 'normal' ...maybe he knows much more than me. There's also a bit of a language barrier here so him saying it's 'normal' maybe should have had a lot more explanation.
One reply suggested I turn off the VDC ..I'll try that a report back.

I have used it for the past 3 years to go on deep sand at Assateague Island in Maryland...Never a problem at all and not stuck even once.. I air down my tires to about 18 p.s.i., although I have gone on the beach with full pressure and it was fine. The lower pressure gives it a bit more grip. I go pretty weighted down as well, yakima mega warrior rack (pretty full), hitch rack, cooler, gear, tents, 3 kids, the wife and I. The VDC is annoying and I shut it off once I engage the 4WD. Good luck and have fun.
