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

problem #1

Nov 012006

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,100 miles


4WD light would engage intermittently. Stayed on for the duration that the vehicle was on. This has happened 3 times at approx mileage: 1530 miles, 3650 miles & yesterday 10/31/06 at 9:15 P.M. pst 6880 miles. Brakes & rotors failed at 2200 miles. Replaced by local dealership. Brakes severely screeched at 5500 miles. Local dealership service said "we forgot to tightened up a few bolts on your brakes". at 6750 miles, severe brakes problems. Brakes lights came on, brakes locked up w/ car severely lurching forward when applying pressure light pressure. Drove to the dealership as is without turning off the car. Noticed that problem was serious & gave us a loaner vehicle for 9 days. Local dealership said they have never seen this failure code before on any Nissan vehicle for a brake issue. "delta strokeforce" local dealership was unable to repair the problem; drove it to a neighboring dealership 180 miles R/T. the neighboring dealership re-programmed the internal computer & assured me the problem was fixed. Tonight 11/01/2006, brake light came on & brakes failed again with my wife & kids in the vehicle. Could not make a stop off a freeway exit & just about put her foot through the floorboard trying to do so. Brakes engaged suddenly skidding the tires through the intersection. Mileage at time of incident 6927. It is now at 6930; my wife & I will be driving it to the local dealership in the morning.
