The Nissan I've Been Waiting For
By Steve on
2005 Nissan Armada LE Rwd 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)
I traded my 2002 Tahoe 5.3L. What a difference! Not only is the fit and finish far superior, the Armada is also roomier, faster and more powerful. I love blowing by those weak SUVs on the uphill grades of California's freeways as they struggle to make the grade! I realize the unfortunate trade off is gas mileage. This thing guzzle fuel like crazy. I'm guessing that Nissan will release the hybrid version in 2008, one model year after the Tahoe '07 hybrid. I'll give'em a year to work out the bugs and come back for my 2009 Armada hybrid.
Styling, power, speed, well-appointed interior, power liftgate.
Brakes suck! Bose stereo is best in class but still not good. Electronic climate control should be available for a vehicle with a sticker over $40K.
