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.

2004 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

Armada 8-cyl

  • miles


Fuel sending unit does not accurately indicate the fuel level. This was brought to the attention of the Nissan service dept in henderson Nevada when the car was new and with every vehicle service or repair since - most recently in June 2011. I was initially told it was normal due the type of fuel indicator. Now I see there are recalls on other Nissan Armadas but different years and on other Nissan models. This could create a serious safety issue if I am unable to detect my fuel level accurately. Nissan refuses to stand behind their vehicles. They know it is a problem in their vehicles and will honor a replacement on some vehicles but not others.

Fuel sending unit does not accurately indicate fuel level- this was reported when the vehicle was new - estimated date above. Was told by dealer it was not a problem. Nissan is recalling on other models and on the Armada but only on specific years but not the 2004. This could be a potentially dangerous situation if I run out of gas and the gauge is still reading that there is gas.
