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.

2006 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 292010


  • 59,637 miles


2006 Nissan Armada vehicle dynamic control and brake lights come on and brakes failed. The problem first occurred as I was driving on a straight, flat street at about 40 miles per hour. Pressing the brakes causes a loud crunching noise on the front that sounded like the brakes being chewed up. It has happened about four times in about a 6-month period before taking the vehicle in for the recent recalls on the fuel and some under the vehicle problem. Since that time the problem occurs constantly. I took the vehicle back to the dealer and they ran test 59637 which showed code C1189 booster defect. It also states that is "unsafe to drive." I could not afford a $1,200 repair job so they said that they could reprogram it to see if that would solve the problem, and it did not. I contacted Nissan Consumer Affairs, and they refused to do anything about it because the warranty had already run out. I complained because this is a safety issue and because I have since learned that there are hundreds of the exact same problem experienced by other Nissan Armada owners. It is a safety issue, and it should be addressed by Nissan. By the way, this is my 5th Nissan vehicle and I had never had any just major problem. I know that if you own a vehicle that you are going to have to have it repaired periodically. But I believe that this one needs to be addressed by Nissan.
