Had some problems with the brakes, had to take it for service 2 times. Fuel economy could be much much better but for a big V8 should be expected. Some noise in the back but once again SUV, should be expected. Overall I would say a good solid SUV. Ton of room for a large family. Navigation is great. Cargo room is very convinient. Power liftgate helps. SVT is a great feature to have, keeps the truck on the ground. Had the truck since February, goes through snow like knife through butter.
Navigation, Sound System, ROOM, 4X4, Powe everything. Rear View Camera <-- Get this 100%.
Gas Economy caould be better. Some interior padding could be better for noice. Engene noice on high RPMs is a bit high. BRAKES, BRAKES, BRAKES.
Just traded in my '04 Armada after two years of making payments on a Dodge Neon because my Aramda was always in for service. Too many problems to list - brakes were repaired two different times and still didn't work properly, radio crackles, sunroof leaks, brakes!!!, squeaks and rattles which drive me nuts. The interior always had something rattling. Residual value after two years was disappointing losing over $20000 of the purchase price. Nissan knows there are problems but doesn't take care of the poor souls that have '04s. Hopefully the 06 model will address some of the concerns. Very happy in my new Lexus!!!!!!!
engine, size, power liftgate, power venting rear windows, access to thrid row
fit and finish, doesn't compare to vehicles of the same price from GM and Ford as far as interior quality of materials. mileage of 12 and 15 very disappointing
It's only been two months for us, but aside from the dismal gas mileage, this vehicle has been all we hoped it would be. There is an annoying click, or, slight hitch in the driver and passenger power windows as they go down. Not sure if that is common to other Armada's. A bi-fold thrid row seat would be prefferable to the current 'all-up' or 'all-down.' It would just give you more seating and cargo options. If I had to guess, I'd bet that Nissan corrects this for future models. But its eye-catching good looks and thoughful features like a power liftgate, rear sonar, mud lights, and fold-flat 2nd & 3rd row seats have made it very nice. Oh, did I mention the power? Wow...
Room for the kids and more to spare! Rear sonar, folding 2nd & 3rd rows, auto everything.
Make the 3rd row a split bench for even more seating and cargo configurations.
Beautiful vehicle! WOW. I did however have it in the shop within 2,000 miles. There is a KNOWN defect on the braking system in the 2004 & 2005 Armada's & Titan's that Nissan has chosen not to share with the customers unless it becomes a problem. Supposedly there are no parts available to make the repairs on the brakes at this time, so they are temporarily turning the rotors to keep the vehicle from "skipping" when attempting to stop. GAS mileage is horrible. If you enjoy spending time at the gas pumps, then this vehicle is meant for YOU. All jokes aside, it is a beautiful vehicle. I just wish they had shared the braking problem with me when I bought it.
