2004 Nissan Armada SE Off-Road 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)
After studying all SUVs in this size I selected the Armada, overall best price and design features. It has only had one warranty repair (warped brake rotors). Now at 40,000 miles it still drives very well, no leaks or any other issues have come up. Fuel economy is disappointing, other vehicles I have owned of this size have done much better. I would buy another if fuel economy were improved. A very good well thought out vehicle if you are looking for an SUV in this size.
Rear seats fold down to make a large FLAT cargo area. Good heating and A/C. All interior controls are easy to use. Vehicle always feel sure footed on snow and ice.
Improve fuel economy. Outside handle on rear liftgate would help with opening and closing. A full-time 4wd system would be nice for winter driving, no drivetrain binding in tight turns. Also an option of a bench type front seat. (available in the Titan).
