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 #2

Jun 232005

Armada 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles


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.

problem #1

Mar 112005

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,100 miles
Everyday driving on good roads and bad roads and while hitting bumps or any imperfection in the road steering wheel moves side to side. Not the whole column just the steering wheel. One time, while holding steering wheel near bottom wheel jilted to right and caught my hand in opening of wheel to where I could not gain control right away. This steering wheel shake happens all the time, even on the highway, where vehicle does move to the left or right depending on which wheel hits the bump or hole in the road. Dealer said this is normal in the steering. The steering is just very loose and sloppy, even at highway speed, where it is suppose to get tighter. Vehicle was brought to dealer on 2/19/05 for the problem, and they found nothing wrong with the steering, only the brake system and replaced those parts. They said this will solve the problem. But my problem is with the steering, and a repair of braking system will not solve the steering problem, that will just solve the shaking problem when I stepping on the brake, S not while I'm driving along roads. There is 2,600 miles on the vehicle, and I don't feel safe or comfortable. It always feels like the vehicle has a shock or stabilizer problem. I hope this can be looked into seriously before some one looses control and has a major accident with serious injury before this problem gets resolved. I am writing this so all 2005 Armada owners will know there are not alone or nuts about this problem. It does exist regardless what the dealers say. Thank you.
