Overall it is simply the most powerful, best looking and most roomy SUV in its class.....and that alone is saying a mouthful. Sure the interior is a little cheap, but you cant have everything. Bold bodacious styling, all aluminum DOHC V8 that will dust a hemi, and a huge, roomy and comfortable interior. Nissan spent the money where it counts in my book. Compared to where GM, Ford, Toyota, etc., etc. spent their money....I would go with the Armada any day. With that said, I did have to replace the front brakes. I got online, found some slotted rotors and ceramic pads, and fixed the problem permanently myself for about $300. I didn't fool around with the dealer's poor service.
Amazing acceleration. This thing will simply blast past anything....hemis included (heck...sports cars even). Awesome styling. Every angle is gorgeous. The nose with the large angular headlamps, the side profile with the rolling arches in the roof, and the bulbous muscular fenders. Wow.
Better interior materials are in order. Nissan has a history of getting great looking and running cars to market quickly while skimping on the interior, and then fixing the interior later (i.e. the new for 02 Altima that got a new interior in 04). Mainly needs better plastics, knobs, and fabrics.
