#10 of 687 Re: Nissan Armada Fire Glove Box Problem.
Apr 03, 2008 (5:46 pm)
I had a total loss engine fire on March 6th, 2008. I noticed a strange, but strong odor while driving my '05 Armada (27,000 miles). Thought it was a truck next to me. Drove 3 miles to my kids school to pick them up. When I started the ignition again, two puffs of smoke came out either side of the engine. Quickly got my 5 & 2 yr. old children out. Within minutes smoke was billowing out of the engine. Within 10 min, the engine was engulfed in flames. Thank God we got out in time. The Fire Captain said it was most likely due to a battery or gas leak. The insurance company declared it a total loss. Nissan has been unwilling to do anything to remedy the situation - especially Nissan Consumer Affairs.
I had multiple issues with the battery not starting and heavy corrosion. They replaced and performed work on the battery for 10 days in Sept. '07. Not sure if it's also related to the glove box.

I have the same thing happen but my daughter burnt her hand. Called nissan they said there was no recall and I should bring it in to the dealer. So pay 50.00 bucks to have some guy say yup she stays on.And then what......They will fix it or pay. You would think in this day with all the crap going on that service would be a top thing guess nissan has no respect for the peaple who buy there cars..

#14 of 687 Still waiting for the problems.....

To be worked out. My Dealer is stumped at the fact that I'm im in there so much. I have been in there over 17 times since December!! The problems persist. Those problems that are still not corrected are:
1. Roof TSB done twice, NOT fixed
2. Rear axle Pop/Click 5 times.
3. Engine pinging noise under passenger foot well.
4. Brake squeal, warped rotors etc 5 times
5. Misc rattles ALL over the interior.

I think problems have mostly been discussed in the main Armada board and one or two in the Nissan Pathfinder Owners: Problems & Solutions one (it's a bit confusing since Nissan dropped the Pathfinder Armada designation).

What is the deal with the roof tsb? I have been hearing a lot about it. I am in the process of purchasing an LE fully loaded 4x4 Armada, can I expect the same???

the rattles that you hear inside might be those plastics (those that prevent water from going inside)on each doors in between the door and door trim and some wiring harness that vibrates against the door itself.

I had the Roof TSB done twice, and my Armada still has the same issues on the freeway!! According to the Dealer, "I'm the only one". I'm waiting for the area manager to get back from vacation. Will your Armada have this issue? I cannot answer that, I can say that you should wait for the 05 models, be sure to check the last 5 digits of the VIN. My Armada was 13666, so it's an early one. I should have ran from those last three digits I guess. From the problems I experience, maybe they allow drinking in the plant.
#19 of 687 Driver Side Window
Aug 31, 2004 (11:02 am)
My Driver side window has broken twice in 6000 miles/7 months of ownership. Both times the window was down completely, and when the window was being put up, it would just stop about 1/3 of the way up and then stop and fall down a couple of inches and not move.
The first time they repaired it, they said it was a bad regulator. I said Ok thats possible, but the second time they said it was a porton of the track assembly, that needed repair. Personally I think it's a lie, and I'm not happy. But at the same time if thats the worst that goes wrong...
Anyone else experience anything similar????
I didn't want to buy it this year, knowing that first production year is always a bit of a headache, but the wife was pushing for it. You see who won that struggle.
