It was great...at first

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Armada SE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

No doubt the Armada is cool. Step on the gas and it pounces forward, and it looks aggressive. All the pillars are annoyingly thick however. For the first 100000 miles we were pretty happy with it but at that point it kind of started to disintegrate. 6,000 dollars in one year on things that shouldn't go wrong like diffs and suspension components. Also, there's significant rust coming in around the rear wiper and the rear wheel arches. This is unacceptable on a 5 yr old car that is garaged every night. Every time we've used it to do real work, it's broken. I like it but I sure wouldn't buy another.




Love my "batttleship"

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Armada SE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

I'm a big guy with a big family, so this is the perfect vehicle. Yes it is a thirsty beast, but I knew that going in. This is by far the most comfortable vehicle I've owned. Family trips are great with six of us and our gear easily accommodated. Pulls my camper with ease. Handles amazingly well for its size. Moves the soccer team and school band like a champ.




Awesome armada

This truck is awesome. It by-far surpassed my expectations. A head turner/ intimidating beast. You tweebs who care about gas mileage, take a hike. If you want unsurpassed power, style and envy buy this truck. It put the hummer to shame.




First and last nissan

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Armada SE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

I was advised not to purchase this vehicle, but bought one anyway. Big mistake. Has been back to dealership six times for repair. Brakes twice, both front windows, door latches, defective tire, and lots of rattles! Definitely doesn't like cold weather. Also, very dissapointed in Nissan, as they are not willing to stand behind their product. Only good thing is the look and the loads of room inside.




Spend less - get more

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Armada SE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

The Armada has made a much comfortable ride for my family. It allows my growing boys plenty of room and space from one another while being able to cargo the groceries for a family of 6. The pricing of the Armada is affordable while the style is elegant. Nissan is a reliable name and doesn't get the credit it deserves, however, for me and my family we feel fortunate to own a nice vehicle and not have it cost as much as our house.




Made in america and it

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Armada SE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

This car has more rattles than Baby Superstore!! I've had mine in the shop for various noises 6 times in 6 months and I'm trying to work in the 7th. It's the worst built car I've owned in the last 5 years (including a Mercury Sable). I'm actually thinking of taking the hit and trading it in for a Honda. I've owned a Maxima and G35Coupe and both were excellent. The quality of this one is disappointing. The gas mileage is on the low end of the EPA estimates so be prepared to shell out the cash. It is fun to drive, has plenty of storage and comfortable seats 8.
