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.

2005 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

When driving and when the brake is applied to stop the brake light comes on and the brakes sound like they are scrubbing and the brake petal goes to the floor the vehicle slows a little but it is still rolling. The vehicle then has to be put in park, the engine then has to be turned off. You then have to wait a few seconds and restart vehicle. If this is not done the light doesnt go off and the braking is the same. Also the front passenger door lock works randomly. I have this problem also with my infiniti G35 which is also made by Nissan, I have two friends that own Nissan vehicles that experience the same problem with their door lock on the front passenger side.

I own a 2005 Nissan Armada, and I believe this vehicle needs a recall. This vehicle has a rear door that lifts up to open. The locking mechanism is defective, and when it breaks, the rear door & window are impossible to open. I have researched this problem on numerous Nissan Armada forums online, and have come across hundreds of other owners with the same problem, and not just on 2005 models. These are just the complaints that made it to the website, which means there must be thousands of others out there. If this vehicle were in an accident & passengers in the rear seat needed to get out through the rear door, they would be trapped. There is an emergency release lever on the interior of the door, but when the lock breaks - this also becomes inoperable.
