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


Bought this 05 model in 12/05 preowned with 16K miles, in immaculate condition. No brake problems at all. We have had it 18 months and it now has 39,500 miles. It literally has never been in the shop, and it still drives perfect. Wife's daily car and she loves it. I am impressed every time I drive it, to the point that I want one also. We're considering a new '08 with all the extra options (roof, 4X4, DVD, nav). I loaded it with 4 adults, 2 kids, too much luggage, roof luggage rack, trailer hitch rack and drove it 80+ mph on West Texas Interstates for 1,200+ miles round trip to NM. It surprised me how smooth, powerful, and stable it was. Still got 17.3 mpg

Best Features

Have owned 2 Suburbans, and Armada drives great and has more leg room. Smooth and powerful, yet handles well for a brute. Feels solid and in control. Wife loves the way it looks. I like the way it drives. Power hatch is nice touch. Don't hesitate to buy one. '08s are even nicer inside.

Worst Features

Doors should automatically lock when put in gear. Most Japanese autos don't do that. Not sure why. Power fold 3rd-row seat would be nice.
