Pros:

Name It! EVERYTHING!!

Cons:

Had to drive a rental for 1-day to have the Brakes upgraded.

Review:

Took it home for overnight Demo and have not been able to get out of it yet. It is a Truck, not a car or mini-van. I've had far fewer problems with my Armada than any other Truck that I've owned.

Pros:

Kick ass SUV with room in the 3rd row for 6ft 250 lb guys

Cons:

Resonance

Review:

I did an extended '05 Armada test drive from a dealer who gave me the keys and said see ya later.
Overall it was an impressive vehicle in every way. The only problem that would put me off buying one (besides price) is I noticed a very pronounced "helicopter effect" at around 77mph. A very low frequency (~40hz) resonance oscilation that would make extended hwy trips bad news. Other forums have noted this issue too. To have a resonance at such a nice crusing speed is a real shame and a deal-breaker for me. Such things are harder to control in larger vehicles, but it's still a disappointment.

Pros:

engine and trans, interior space, looks great

Cons:

few rattles, engine knock during start

Review:

I've trading in a lot of new vehicles lately because of quality, most recently was my 04 Yukon all wheel drive fully loaded for this armada. I'm here to tell you Nissan is way ahead of the game on craftsmanship and attention to detail, few problems but nothing worth trading in my armada.

Feel the power!!

BREAKS. Insist on them changing yours. They are bad!!!

Review:

I have had my Armada for 32 days. It is a beauty, and I feel on top of the world driving it. I got talked into a used one by the dealers for a "bigger discount". I would have liked a 2006 better. It has 20,000 miles which is very low, but not new. Was told it was owned by a sweet old couple who traded it for a smaller car. Lie! I found the Enterprise rental reg. in the glove compartment. I complained about the brakes squeaking and was told they were checked and perfect. Lie! It is in the shop right now getting the rotors and brakes replaced due to a horrible sound coming from them. And the wiring is being replaced due to a recall. So much for the 100 point inspection before buying a used car! I have been at the dealership once a week since I got it trying to get the ticks out that should have been done before selling it. They had not even detailed it yet. Besides the dealership lying about a lot, I love the big Armada and so do the kids. Bottom line, buy a new car! Then you know what your getting and the history of it.

Pros:

A lot of room, smooth ride, awesome power and still an eye catcher. Even the gas mileage is o.k. for such a monster.

Cons:

None

Review:

Great for long trips, very comfortable ride, almost too comfortable. Kids love it too! My hometown dealership has been great dealing with the TSBs and I did not even buy it from them. Thanks Sonora Nissan!
