I reading the post of brake problems and it is the same thing happening with me, and the 2005 Armada, I also took the truck to the dearlership and they said that it was the brake booster and it would cost min. $850. to fix it but that I would still have trouble. I love my ARMADA but I do not feel safe anymore driving it. The company obviously needs to looking into the part and making it a recall issue, any suggestions to get the ball rolling........very frustrated Armada owner

Hi, I am having brake problems and the Nissan dealership suggested to replace the Brake Booster, did your problem with the brakes fix after you replaced the booster or did the problem continue....very worried driver:(

I was also in need of front brakes as well..was told by someone with same problem that replacing their front brakes worked not replacing booster. I was going to just do that but with my consistant complaining to the dealer they replace the booster (me just having to buy part, no labor charge..$450 mind you!)Still feel un safe since I keep hearing this issue will re apear!!! Front brakes still should have been good for more miles as well.
Attorney general is my only thought on this with a number of us all fileing complants

I had the same brake problem with my 2004 Armada except that my brake would lock up on me when warning lights would appear. It didn't matter how fast I was driving (5mph or 80mph) when warning lights came on (I usually wouldn't notice it) and I used my brakes, they would lock up on me. Initially they reset computer and that was only a temporary fix.They did replace my rotors though. There was a recall on those so pursue it. I eventually traded in my 2004 Armada for for a 2008 Armada and mentioned nothing about my continued issues to dealership. I was told that the only way that they could figure out my problem was to witness the activity while the problem was active (it happened periodically without any rhyme or reason). That was highly risky considering the consequences. My son was just born when I decided to trade it in. I didn't want to take any chances. The 2008 model is heaven on earth. Good luck

I just bought an '06 Armada 40 days ago. While driving at speeds of about 35-40 also had the same symptoms that everyone else is talking about on here......question, did your breaks actually "lock up" and tires skid to a stop, or did it just have the crunchy noise that others share in this blogg?
I took ours to the Nissan dealership today and spent $75 to have the tec look at the computer....he said the reprograming of the computer was already done (prob from previous owner). So I was told that it could continue with the same problem as all other Armada owners on here....My wife just wants to make sue they won't lock up on her and skid to a stop like you wrote.
Thanks for your input.

Please go back and read my VERY FIRST post. I was driving on I-20. going over 70 miles with kids in the trucks. i had my digital camera in the car and taped my trucks brakes going out. Several times. I think i went to NISSAN 7 different times. But the cake was me CONTACTING NISSAN CORP and CARMAZ CORP. if your break light comes on and its early enough to take it to the DEALER take it.. do NOT turn the TRUCK OFF.. keep all the receipts of you going and contact the corporate office. make them aware that you belong to a group. a group of people that all have ARMADAS that all are getting a LAWYER and will be trying to get a CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT. i did.. They replaced my computer. I've had my truck for 3 years and I haven't had an issue. I even get calls from NISSAN and CARMAX checking on me to make sure that the car is doing okay. If you give up and don't keep pushing the fact that you fear for your safety.. Which is NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH. then they don't take you seriously. What we need to remember is that NISSAN can replace parts and their trucks.. but we can't be replaced. I wish you all the best!

I never did state the brakes locked up. The brake light went on and they grinded and pulsed to a stop. Not full braking. Like the power brakes went out and I had to really push the pedal down to stop. Mind you I was only in a parking lot when this happend thank goodness. Not sure how the vechicle would have responded at a higher speed!
