OK truck not better than a Sequoia
By John on


2009 Nissan Armada LE FFV 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Wanted a Toyota Sequoia but ended up buying this one because of it is 4K cheaper. Never own a SUV before and will never get use to drive a car/truck this big. Yes it has all the creature comfort but it drive like a truck. With gas price moving up again this look like a mistake to get one. If you really need a truck to carry 7 or 8 adult then this is not going to be your first choice. This truck has higher clearance so it is good for offroading...but who will take this 50K machine off road? Before you decide to buy one make sure go take a test drive. Did I mentioned that I felt it was a mistake to bug a truck this big? Maybe it will grow on me. Thus far I'm still driving my 10 yrs old van.

Best Features

Comfortable first and second row seats. Decent engine. Quality built and fit...definitely better interior than a highly rated Sequoia. Beautiful and strong front profile. Useful rear view cam. High clearance for Chicago streets pot holes but wont fit in many underground parking lots.

Worst Features

Third row seat is a joke. Only a preteen and baby can seat there comfortably. Second row seat should slide to make way for third row seat instead of fixed. Put in six gears box to improve gas mileage. More color palettes instead of same old boring color from first generation.
