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.

Consumer has had numerous problems with the brakes and air condition on 2004 Nissan Armada. When the brakes were applied, the consumer felt a vibration, the pads and rotors were replaced. The rear strut, window and moon roof were leaking. The rear ac pipe and O-ring were replaced to rectify the problem with the air condition not cooling. The hatch struts were replaced due to excessive play.

Bought new Armada in November 2004. It has been at the service center at bankston lewisville twice now. Repeat problem with brake failure and steering wheel shaking. Unibody creaks all the time. 2nd row seat belt failed twice, which threw my baby and her car seat into the back of the driver's seat!!! dash and consoles rattle all the time. Wind noise is horrible! dealer said they will work on it. I called Nissan Consumer Affairs and are waiting for a response from a regional specialist.

Poor braking system been to dealer will not fix. Brakes are to small to stop Armada properly. Needs bigger rotor and pads. Dash rattles very loud will not fix. Poor paint on blizzard Armada.

I purchased a Nissan Armada in April 2004 and two months later had to bring it to dealer for repair as the brakes were shuddering causing tremendous shimmy in the steering wheel. The dealership, Nissan thousand oaks, did not replace the "warped rotors", instead "switching" them around and replacing the brake pads. The additional problem of a rattle and squeaking sound from dashboard resulted in the dealership realigning the dashboard properly. Two months later I was back at the dealership to fix the brakes again. This time I demanded that the inferior rotors be replaced with higher-quality rotors. They replaced the factory-installed rotors with new rotors (told better quality rotors) and they also had to replace the brake pads again. Additionally, there I was experiencing an intermittent problem with the A/C; it would sometimes run very hot air. They checked it out and found that the clutch fan needed to be replaced; this part is on order and I will have to return for installation. Also, I asked them to once again fix a squeaking and rattling issue that seemed to be coming from the dashboard again and also intermittent failure of the stereo controls located on the steering wheel. According to their mechanics, the sound problem and stereo controls problem did not occur while my vehicle was in their possession. A week later, August 12, 2004, I had to return to have the clutch fan replaced and this time I also requested that one of their mechanics drive the vehicle with me so that I could point out the squeaking issue. The mechanic heard the sound problem this time and I am told they will try to fix this issue. I have not had a problem again, as yet with the stereo controls on the steering wheel.
