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 4WD 8-cyl

  • 88,000 miles


I own a 2004 Nissan Armada. About 2 weeks ago while driving the red airbag warning light turned on and would not turn off. I just had it serviced today and was told that the front crash zone airbag sensor being that it is located outside of the front radiator grill ends up rusting out from the elements of our weather. Therefore it needed to be replaced. The car is out of warranty so therefore it was billable. After doing some research I came across a Nissan recall from January 2009. The NHTSA campaign id # is 08V690000. This recall was for the exact same problem with the crash zone sensor rusting out from snow/salt in the northern us states but was only limited to 2005-2009 pathfinders, frontiers and xterra vehicles. I feel that my vehicle should be included in this recall due to the fact that it is the exact same problem listed in the recall and I live in NY state which obviously has winters with snow and salt. The recall issued a redesigned sensor to correct the problem at no cost to the vehicle owner.

1) 130lb female adult sitting properly in the right front passenger seat is unable to engage the airbag system. No matter the seating position, e.g. upright, slouching or otherwise, the indicator light shows system is disabled. 2) vehicle was taken to local Nissan dealer who was unable to diagnose a solution, suggesting that a greater weight was necessary to engage the airbag. 3) comparable vehicles, and Nissan documentation show that weights under 60 lbs should disable the airbag feature. Nissan is deficient and negligent in allowing this vehicle to be operating with a known serious defect.
