2005 Nissan Armada LE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)
A Nissan Failure. Very poor in quality, poor braking system. Rotors are too small and warp between 3k-4k. Sunroof leaks and rattles. Rattle sounds through out entire truck. Poor radio reception and navigation system will not work in cold weather until vehicle reaches warm temperatures. Also though your wheel alignment may be fine the steering wheel itself becomes off centered. My Armada has been in the shop for all of the above problems 16 times in the first full year. Not where a new vehicle $40K+ belongs unless it's a Lemon, the Armada is a lemon. The truck has already lost $20K in trade-in value. Thats a big hit just to get out of this and in to something more reliable.
Power, Power, Power! Handles well and great Bose system. Navigation System is wonderful.
Brake fix are a must, Nissan should consider it a safety hazard. Quality of this truck needs to be better, especially for the price.
