Get ready to shell out huge $$$ for repairs
By vfabrici on


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


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

Best 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.

Worst Features

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.
