Only had it 2 days with 89,000 miles on it ,so far no complaints. I will be using it to tow a 28 ft travel trailer that weighs 4,745 lbs. It has a towing pkg with tow mode capable of towing 9,000 lbs. I purchased a 3 yr 36,000 mi warranty with it,so we will see how it goes. They put $2,700.00in parts and labor in it before i purchased it. New tires,headlight,cupholder,evaporator,etc
I bought this car used, a 2010, with 85000 miles. I went from only owning Lexus vehicles, to this one, and I have to say, I love it - it's perfect. People complain about mileage, but it's a big car, so it is expected to be poor. I average around 14 to 15 MPG overall. Summer its higher, winter it's lower. I traded in a Lexus RX because I wanted something with 3 rows of seats, with a third row that is actually usable. I looked at the Ford Expedition, Suburban, and Yukon, and none of them seemed to have a third row that anyone over the age of 5 could fit into.
People note this car rides similar to a truck - and that's because it is one. That said, I think it rides very well, and is responsive for such a big vehicle. Moreover, the Armada is fast - much faster than you would expect.
There is ample room for 2nd row passengers, and tons of cargo storage throughout. I have the Platinum version with bucket second row seats - so there is a console between the two seats. DVD entertainment works well. Heated steering wheel is awesome in the winter.
In fact, I towed out a Ford F250 this winter that found itself stuck in the snow - and did it with great ease.
As a whole, I would totally recommend this vehicle. It's great for family, or to fold down all the seats for hauling stuff. Tows 9100 lbs - more than any truck in it's class. I haven't had it long enough to rate reliability, but so far, it's been great - no problems.
