Hi, I feel your pain I owned a 2005 Armada. I had wrote several times on this site. I had made numerous complaints. Finally, I had enough. My vehicle had 42K when I had the dealer buy it back. Because of the high milage it was not covered under the basic Lemon Law. However, it was covered under the breach of Warrenty which is basicly the same thing. Nissan has had several TSB's to fix the problem. Nissan knows they have a problem with the early Armadas. If you are smart you will contact a Lemon law Attorney about your Armada. Any Lemon Law Attorney will be familiar with the brake issue. Good Luck!!!

Hello, I have an 04 Armada, brakes went out 3 times (separate events) on my wife while she was driving on the highway, it's at the dealership right now, their telling me they can't duplicate the problem, 3 weeks ago when it happened, they said it was the Master Cylinder and they charged me an arm and leg to replace. Brakes went out again 2 days ago (6/2/09).
Did you get any resolve, please share so I can follow suite, thanks. Anyone else with recommendations please join in (name of a good lawyer is also welcomed)!

We have a 04 Armada too and had it in the shop for a while after our breaks went out a few times. We gave them one last chance and believe it or not they fixed them. It wasn't a break problem after all...it is an electrical problem. There is a fix out there and make them check out the fix in the electrical and computer area. It has been 3 years now and we haven't had any problems sense. Hopefully that continues.

Hey, did the upgrade work? I have had the same problem just started about 6 months ago but it happens rarely. If you didn't get any resolution and need a good lemon law attorney contact www.normantaylor.com they represented me against Dodge and I won all my money and then some.

i have a 2004 ARMADA, when purchases in MARCH it only had 43k miles on it. i have taken it to CARMAX and to NISSAN on Several occassions to deal with the ABS system shutting down. At first they told me there was nothing wrong, I was mistaken,. If the ABS light didnt come on. then it wasnt the ABS.. Then They made me aware there is a ABS MEMO and the computer needs to be reset. I will tell you that my computer has been reset 2 times since APRIL. Just recently the system went out and I called NISSAN on the phone and asked them...while riding what to do. Because it was 5:45pm and i was 30mins away from them and they closed at 6. The service man told me to pull over.., I am like,, HELLO no brakes,.,. easier said than done.. So.. finally i get the car to slow down. I pull over and he instructs me to turn the car off.. I do so.. when this happens. The light goes off and the brakes start working again.. The computer reset itself.. this is the only solution that they give me.
so i guess i need to find someone that has had the system replaced and how they went about doing it.. i love my truck.. but I LOVE MY LIFE MORE!

Yes I have an 06 also, took it to them today for the same problem. Charged me for diagnostic test and said I need a brake booster, but going by what I have read on here it's very common. Seems to me this should be a recall item that Nissan should be paying if not all at least 80% of.

Sorry to hear all the issues guys. My 04 has been working flawlessly. Even had to tow my 11,500 lb boat trailer about 200 miles with no trailer brakes when they died on me and the Armada actually stopped all 16,500lbs!
I did notice that when my pads went low that I started getting an ABS and Brake lights (forget which 3 they were on the dash but more than just the usual brake light that comes on when the pads go low) and once I swapped the pads to new Akebonos they have been fine since.

I have read through alot of the problems that the Armada's are having with the brakes and I find it very hard to believe that some of the dealers and reps are okay with telling people to pull over and reset it by starting the engine again. How many people have to get hurt or worst yet die before Nissan bites the bullet and does a recall to repair all of these issues. I am sure most of you know that these vehicles were not cheap and we should be getting a quality vehicle for the price we paid. If anyone has had the reprogramming and has not had any issues, I'd love to hear from you.
