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.

Multiple occurrences - while driving, the brakes begin to grind, stutter, and stop working. I had to downshift in order to slow the vehicle, and pull over. The brake light will illuminate as this occurs. After stopping the vehicle, it must be completely turned off for a few moments, and then it will go back to "normal." This has also occurred while exiting the freeway - not safe! airbag light is constantly on. Many of the electrical parts are not working. We thought Nissan would be the best vehicle to buy. But have had nothing but major problems. Please send recall for brakes and airbags

9/22/09 - airbag light staying on - dealer found code B1034 "crash zone unit fail", found short circuit inside crash zone sensor, replaced crash zone sensor, cleared code. 9/29/09 - airbag light on again - dealer found code B1034 again - crash zone sensor failed. Found short circuit in air bag diagnostic unit - removed center console and replaced air bag diagnosis control unit, cleared codes. 10/23/09 - airbag light on again - dealer once again found code B1034 - called Nissan tech support, spoke with someone named mike. Was advised to replace both the engine harness and the main harness, removed steering wheel and steering shaft, removed center console, removed glove box, removed dash, and removed crossbar, installed new main harness, installed new engine harness, performed front end alignment because steering wheel and column were removed. Found open circuit in wire of the main harness, cleared code. Not sure if related but at the same time the sunroof switches starting working backwards and not opening automatically so reinitialized sunroof. 1/23/10 - airbag light on again - replaced bulb Sept 2014 - airbag light on again - dealer found code B1034 again!!! short in crash zone sensor - replaced sensor - cost $487.72 at what point does Nissan accept responsibility for the defect"?? in addition to above, have had issues with the battery not lasting more than 2.5 years. I just replaced it for the 3rd or 4th time in 2012 and am told that it is drained and I need another one?? related? I think so. Brakes - I've seen numerous complaints about people pressing down the brakes and having them not work and they make a grinding sound and vibrate. I've experienced this twice but the dealer says they can't find anything wrong?"

Armada 8-cyl

  • 48,400 miles
I just bought a used 2008 Nissan Armada le (48000miles) with tow package and hooked up to my small enclosed trailer (1800 gwr). I went into my house for less than 5 minutes and when I returned to the truck I saw it was completely bottomed out in the rear. I started the truck and the compressor came on and auto leveled out, but within 15 minutes of driving it was completely flat and caused severe handling issues. This is very dangerous and could lead to an accident. After doing some research online I saw that this is extremely common and Nissan has a service bulletin out but will not recall there faulty air lines that run from the compressor to the rear air bags. People all over have been shocked at Nissan's failure to address the problem and not finding a permanent fix. I have seen people with brand new models claim the have had the whole system replaced multiple times and the leak still re-occurs leading to the air bag failure. This is what the lemon laws were written for so I hope someone pursued it. I hope writing this helps all owners get this problem resolved and I urge anyone that owns a Nissan Armada to look and listen for the compressor running. It's not too obvious of a problem until you attempt to tow but you will see the rear sagging and the compressor turning on frequently. For more info research it here www.clubarmada.com/forums/show thread.php?T=12815 and the technical service bulletin for Nissan is ntb10142.
