Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

Armada 8-cyl

  • 1,000 miles


Brake jutter, grinding, shaking when braking. ABS vdl slip brake lights up on dash--unable to turn off. Stopping vehicle and restarting corrects the problem sometimes; other times the light stays on. Brake pads originally replaced early after purchase in 2005 when the vehicle was still under warranty. The vehicle is rarely driven--there is approximately 36K miles on the vehicle--but the problem has been persistent over the years when driven. Lately, I have been driving the vehicle more often and the problem is continuing and it is more apparent that there is a problem with the vehicle brakes. I am also experiencing problems with the lift gate as it recently stopped functioning when pressing the key fob or either of the switches inside the vehicle. I began opening and closing the lift gate manually and now it will not close securely, I.e., it is not getting that final seal when closed. In addition, the front passenger window no longer goes up or down and does not work when using the driver's or passenger switch. Finally, the driver's seat does not reset to the position programmed when the engine starts and turns off. I decided to research the internet today and was quite surprised to see that there are so many others who are experiencing the same problem with their 2004 amada. Called a local Nissan dealer today and they were well aware of the problem. Just as so many have written all over the internet, the dealer suggest that you bring the vehicle in when the brake light issue is displayed so that they can perform diagnostic test.
