problem #3

Dec 012009

Armada Offroad V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


Like many others, the brake light comes on, then when trying to brake, the brakes grind and act as though they are not going to stop the vehicle...I pull over when I see the brake light go on because I know what is going to happen next...Once I turn off the vehicle and restart, the problem goes away. I notice it more during bad weather which has me thinking it is some sort of faulty sensor for the ABS/Brakes. Cold, wet, snow, ice seems to create more problems for me...who wants the brakes to fail during bad weather especially. Because it is sporadic and not predictable, technicians say "well, if we do not see it, we don't know what to look for." How about checking the ABS SENSORS and other technical items associated with them.

Why hasn't Nissan listened to our problems and find a solution...this is not normal and not safe...First chance I get, I am trading in my Nissan for a smaller crossover - and not a Nissan.

Armada SE V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles

This is an occasional problem, and though I tried to get the dealer to do something about it while it was still in warranty, they could not reproduce it. About every 6 months or so it does this and causes quite a scare if it happens while in traffic.

I wish Nissan had taken this more seriously to find the root cause.

Armada SE 5.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,000 miles

My current issue is with the VEH SPD SEN/CIR AT. REC VALVE BODY. The dealer told us the cost of this fix for the parts and labor for the valve body was 1675.00. They told us the repair would take 5 days but the part is currently on backorder and could not be obtained. I do have a transmission place I have delt with for other vehicles I would use and they are unable to get the part either...it seems it is in such high demand. I have delt with Nissan on a slew of other issues and am just completely frustrated. I have a file as thick as a novel on all the issues and repairs I have had with this vehicle starting with the brakes at 3000.00 miles. I had these brakes done 4 times before they decided to fix the inadequate size of the pads which resulted in me having to purchase new rotars because they cut them each time. I have also had issues with the brakes shuddering which I never actually had fixed completely...they were at a loss every time I mentioned the problem and ended up reprogramming the computer twice and finally saying that the abs signal was lost from a worn outher tie rod end causing the wheel to lose contact with the speed sensor. Needless to say I still have the issue intermitedly but I have had the vehicle for 8 years. I have researched the internet and found a ton of people having the same problems and the fix is not what I recieved for sure. Summing things up in the eight years Ive owned the vehicle I have had numerous brake issues causing me to actually loose brakes, a fuel gauge that went out causing me to loose power on the expressway because I ran out of gas, a drivers side power window problem because of a faulty seal allowing water in my door, a hatch handle that pulled off, and recently a transmission problem that also caused me to loose power as my vehicle siezed up and died on the side of the road. This car is a LEMON!!! that Nissan doesnt seem to stand behind or want to fix properly.
