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.

Purchased 2005 Armada in may by June vehicle went into service because a noise was coming from the rear side. 2 attempts to fix and part was replaced. August 2005 taken to dealer again because of shaking while braking, and front rotors /pads were replaced, and rear rotors resurfaced. January 2006 vehicle taken back to dealer because there was a grinding. Apparently the problem were the tires that needed balancing and rotating. Another problem was the liftgate, it did not want to open and close automatically. My car has been in the shop for 3 days and they still did not know what the problem could be. As another consumer mentioned the stability of this vehicle was very poor, I have swirved sharply to the left when braking at 50 mph or more. According to the Nissan service they have not found anything wrong with this.

Purchased a 2005 Nissan Armada in December 2004. Noticeable shaking in steering wheel column when braking. This usually occurs when braking from speeds greater than 40 mph. Took the car to the dealer where I purchased it from and they acknowledged that there has been an issue with steering wheel shaking, which the service advisor explained, is due to rotor becoming heated and warped. He said that they have a temporary fix for the problem - changing brake pads, rotors, and installing a bolt somehwere, and that Nissan was working on a permanent fix. I wish I new about this issue before I dished out the big bucks. Hopefully, this problem does not pose a deadly hazard in the not to distant future.

Brake system seems unsafe. The rotors are making some serious noises, and the vehicle only has 5,000 miles on it. Vehicle is 2005 Nissan Armada.
