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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles
Front brake began pulsating at 5000 mile. I brought vehicle to dealer who turned rotors and replaced brake shoes with thicker shoe. Brakes are again pulsating at 11,000 miles. I believe the vehicle brake components are not sufficient for the weight of the vehicle.

Brake rotor warping issue that has been brought up by many owners. Rotors were turned and it needs it again 2500 miles later. I requested that the rotors be replaced but request was denied. It seems that the braking system on the front of the Armada is not sufficient for the vehicle weight. I am going to take the vehicle in again for the same service this time demanding that the rotors be replaced. Nissan should be forced to change the size of the brake rotors, pads, entire system if necessary.

Rear collision due to brake failure. The brakes are too weak and vibrate. The dealer replace the brakes pads, then a week later the front break disks were replace because still vibrates. It solve the problem for approximately. 2,000 miles then the vibration starts again.

Consistent failures on brake system. Rotors and brake pads need to be replaced every 3000 miles. Shortage or parts forces ownder to drive vehicle around with severe shudder in the steering wheel and brake pedal, potentially causing driver to loose control in heavy braking conditions.
