2006 Nissan Armada LE 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Rides great, has plenty of power. I pulled a 60 Cadillac with this rig from TN to NJ, figure 7500 lbs with the trailer and she would cruise no problem doing 75 mph. Also, using your high beams and horn it's very easy to intimidate other drivers including 18 wheelers. Couple issues with quality control/reliability. Factory radio dies after the 50k warranty was up and was a $500 repair. In addition, the driver door weatherstrip and the trunk weatherstrip are falling apart and the vehicle is only 3 years old.


Favorite Features

plenty of horsepower, truck has an aggressive unique look.


Suggested Improvements

Better quality control on out sourced components. Stereo and weather stripping should not be falling apart during the first 3 years.

2006 Nissan Armada LE 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I am stunned reading these reviews. I have had more small problems than ever. Windows rattle, sunroof rattles, cheap plastic interior creaks all of the time, ride is a little rough, poor fuel economy. I have been to the dealership as much as an employee. A friend has one, and notices the same annoyances. Funny, when I get in it, I still love to drive it! Trips to the dealer are killing me though. Too many annoyances for something in this price range. Nissan has to do better than the plastic interior in this vehicle. If noise does not bother you, this is an excellent vehicle. What is with the cable driven windows?


Favorite Features

Navigation, Power, Sound system.


Suggested Improvements

Better material quality interior, Change window drive system. Have a switch to soften suspension, heated rear captain's chairs.

2006 Nissan Armada SE 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

We are very happy with our Armada and in fact are thinking of buying another when this lease is up. We also tested the Toyota Sequoia, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade at the time of purchase -- the Armada was best due to styling, comfort, interior/exterior amenities, and most important, the ease of changing the seat configuration! Car has performed great, gas mileage is not super but acceptable compared to other similar-sized SUVs, and I would (and do) recommend the car to others in the market for a larger SUV.


Favorite Features

Seat configuration, automatic lift gate, back-up camera, GPS, display config.


Suggested Improvements

DVD moved to another location other than center storage unit (difficult to change disks for kids while moving or if you stow much stuff).

Review

We have owned the truck since new, it now has about 220k miles. Im going to give the truck overall an f, The amount spent on repairs is really high, specifically for things that should have lasted the life of the truck. 2) at less than 60k miles the exhaust manifolds warped. This was an obscene $3600 repair. 3) Factory radio/cd player died in less than 3 years, a $800 repair. 4) Radiator had to be replaced at less than 100k miles, almost $1000. 5) Dealer screwed the car up and ruined the fuel pump while doing factory warranty work on the gas gauge. They then refused to acknowledge they caused the problem. Truck went in running fine, came out limping home, could barely go


Favorite Features

COMPLAINTS continued. 20 mph. $1200 This happened at 190k miles. 6) Wire in automatic trans got loose, truck wouldnot start. $600!!!!! again at about 200k miles. 7) Ac repairs are now $1700 and still does not work right. 8) Truck, cause it weighs 3 tons eats tires and brakes like french fries. You will not get 40k miles out of a set of brakes or tires. Front pads have been replaced at least 6 times. She is on her fifth set of tires. 9) factory gps system died after about 5 years, i never had it fixed. 10) the dealer service areas are incompetent and dishonest. They charge obscene rates and if they cause a problem they will not take ownership.


Suggested Improvements

IN summary: Including oil changes and everything repairs were about $13k for 220k miles. This was way too high. 11) if u go over the mileage on a lease they will make u pay for every extra mile, even if u want to go into a new leas Btw, it's no surprise that nothing breaks during the lease period. It all happens after 50k miles Brakes and tires people expect. BUT 9K in one time repairs? The exhaust manifolds alone were $3600. I would have given the truck a passing grade if the one time repairs were $3500 or less, not $9000 dollars. Nissan use to mean quality and reliability. For $57k in 2006 dollars, one would expect a truck to last 200k+ miles with a minimum of repairs.
