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

problem #1

Jan 282006

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 29,795 miles


Today I took 2004 Armada through a touch less car wash as I have done many times before. The upper rear high mount brake light housing, actually a body part of the vehicle, came off during the exiting of the car wash. This happened when the blower blew the water off the Armada and blew this housing down onto the rear window. Upon inspection the plastic rivets that hold the housing in place had sheered off, and the wind blew the unit down onto the window. The unit came down with enough force to break the back window and did infect scratch it. The only thing preventing the unit from coming completely off and becoming a projectile object was the wiring. It appears that the auto mobile maker is aware of this, but does not warn consumers, and will not repair this design flaw with substantial anchors. In a roll over this could come off completely and become a projectile object. Additionally, until I am able to get this fixed I am riding around without benefit of a rear brake light as required by federal law. I have been told by others, Armada newsgroup, that this is a common problem with these units, and that Nissan refuses to accept the liability. We have paid a lot for these vehicles, and do expect a reasonable amount of safety.
