I love it so much. It has enough space. The only thing is the SE should have fog lights. That would bring them out also. Other than that the Armada's are Great!!!!!!!!!

2005 Nissan Armada LE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Bought fully loaded 2004 Nissan Armada. Quiet yet powerful V8 engine, fun to drive, great acceleration. Duriong last Xmas, I drove it to Mexico from Minneapolis, MN - not a simple problem. Best features in the class: DVD Navigation, lots of computer settings you can adjust, nice leather with heated seats. Much better than Toyota Sequoya or Ford Expedition. SHIFT_drive!


Favorite Features

DVD Navigation - love it, Tire pressure monitoring system - no other cars have that; BOSE entertainment system has lots of power, wireless headphones keep your kids busy on the back while you are listening to what you want on the front. Oh yea, 18" rims are great.


Suggested Improvements

Nissan service has not been that great - tried to fix the overhead, broke the sunroofsome others. Select your service company very carefully. Hope Nissan fixed the interior rattles....

2005 Nissan Armada LE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The Armada packs a punch. The 2004 Lincoln Navigator I drove last year was comfortable and stylish, but doesn't compare in the performance department. The Armada tows my bass boat through the Smoky Mountains with ease. It's first off the line at traffic lights. Handles well for such a giant. Entertainment system is tops.


Favorite Features

The technology package with a reverse monitor makes parking a snap because of the well-designed projected guide lines that appear on the screen (something missing on my wife's 04'Toyota 4-runner with the same feature). Power liftgate with convenient rear post control is great. Roomy consoles!


Suggested Improvements

The factory equipped brake pads do not hold up under hilly conditions (replaced at 6,000 miles). Like the Toyota and Lincoln, the CD navigation system disk provided by the manufacturer is very outdated. The front seatbelts are awkward to locate.

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


Review

This vehicle has serious brake issues! I have an 2005 model and at 2000 miles of city driving, the wheel and pedal started to vibrate. Now with 3000 it is so bad it is embarassing to drive with friends. Nissan was just "turning" the rotors but now have developed a new brake kit however the dealers in my area are clueless when the will get the upgrade. Make sure you get an upgrade before you buy!!!!!!!!! P.S. nissan says this upgrade will work...only time will tell.


Favorite Features

looks, towing capacity, engine power and sound, room


Suggested Improvements

fix rattles on door and reliable brakes and better gas mileage

2005 Nissan Armada SE Rwd 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I was hesitant to buy a 2004 due to problems mentioned on edmunds, and I'm glad I waited. The 2005 is indeed a very nice truck. Gobs of power; merging onto the freeway is a breeze. Interior cabin is very quiet, surprisingly so at freeway speeds. Lots of interior room; front seats (leather) are firm and supportive, middle bench has lots of legroom, and the kids prefer sitting in the third row, so I assume it's pretty comfy back there as well! Bose stereo sounds great. One concern is the underpowered brakes; steering wheel started shuddering after about 3k miles, mostly city driving. Dealer serviced brakes at no charge, all is well again. Overall, I love this truck & have NO regrets.


Favorite Features

Exterior style - I think it looks mean, my wife thinks it's "cute." Powerful engine - this SUV is fast! Interior space - a lot. Bose system sounds great.


Suggested Improvements

Beef up the brakes! Quick wear of brake pads makes alloy wheels grimy just days after a car wash. Backlights for steering wheel stereo controls. Scuff resistant plastics for interior.
