Wheel Shimmy Problem Ruins This SUV
By KD on


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


While this is a great SUV there is a major problem that ruins the drive. This truck has a wheel shimmy problem like nothing I have ever experienced before. It began a week after we bought it. The SUV has been in and out of the shop ever since. I have heard every excuse from the dealership as to what it is, how it was caused and how they have fixed the problem. Yet back into the shop it goes on Saturday for another "part" that was on "back order" to correct the problem. (Yeah right!) It shimmies going down hill (I live on a hill), it shimmies at speeds above 50 mph, and now it has worn out the left front tire (a huge Wrangler) while leaving the other tires untouched. What a shame.

The look of the SUV.

Worst Features

Fix the wheel shimmy problem. It ruins the truck's drive, is difficult to handle and will someday end up killing someone. If I could turn it back into the dealer I would. I am sick of going to the dealer every few months only to be told how they will fix the problem THIS TIME. Sure you will.
