Still loving it!

2008 Nissan Armada SE 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 5A)
16,000 miles later and we remain quite impressed overall. The gas mileage average to date is 14.8. A few issues required a trip back to the dealer (rt ft strut blown, bad coolant cap leaking), but everything has been resolved to our satisfaction. One quality note: the alignment from the factory was awful! The truck darted around over bumps and handled horribly at first. I performed an alignment myself. It made a HUGE difference in the truck's composure! The front AND rear suspension is adjustable. Request that all be adjusted and get a final printout! The Armada serves our needs to a "T". I have no reservations in recommending it to anyone needing a large SUV!
Strong and responsive powertrain (this thing flat out rolls on demand!), good balance between ride and handling, Bose sound/XM, good overall interior design and comfort, multi function computer has handy features and information.
Chassis not fully sorted out (gets ruffled around the edges/shudders over larger sharp bumps), the gray dash/door trim on the SE looks cheap (why not the brushed finish as on the center console?), abrupt wind noise around front door frames with sharp cross winds, OEM tires will be worn by 25K miles.
