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


Review

I can't say enough about my new SUV. It is just superb. Well built and designed. The ride is awsome.


Best Features

Driver's side seat slides to front and back as you open the door. It's like you are the lady at the fancy restaurant and the car is the waiter that helps you as you sit down :)


Worst Features

Sound system could use a better design to interface with external equipment. (like Apple's iPOD)

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Solid vehicle, nice design, handles well, beautiful smooth and quiet ride.


Worst Features

Bad placement of electric seat controls. Air conditioning doesn't seem to sufficient for vehicle. Bad brakes and VERY bad gas mileage.

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


Review

The design of the Armada sets it apart from all it's competition. Moving away from the boxy sameness that the American automakers have had for the past 10 years, the Armada stands as a refreshing design with great road "presence." The comfort of driving is excellent with a very generous interior, superb quiet at highway speeds, excellent acceleration, and a tow capability of almost 10,000 lbs. Many creature comforts are included and the interior has the feel of a first-class seat on a 767, including excellent rear leg room. The gas mileage is typical for a large, heavy vehicle but a small price to pay for the many advantages a vehicle this size gives for hauling cargo and passengers.


Best Features

Excellent power and acceleration. Very quiet interior at highway speeds. Smooth ride. Generous interior dimensions for all passengers. Take charge appearance.


Worst Features

Larger beefier front brakes.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Fun and easy to drive (with the stereo cranked up to hide the noises)


Worst Features

I'd like to see future models with a split back seat for more flexibility.

Review

After driving a very reliable 2001 Ford Expedition for 89,000 miles it was hard to make the change but then I drove a Nissan Armada. It handled so much better and had so much more power it was fun to drive. It looks bigger but handles like a smaller SUV. It gets better gas mileage and is no harder to park than the Expedition. Hopefully its resale value will also exceed my expectations.
