2005 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

My wife was driving the 2005 Nissan Armada when it totally shut down. Luckily she was in a parking lot and was able to get out of the lane of traffic. We took it to the dealer, and he advised it was the ipdm and is typical issue with Armada. They replaced but since there were no recalls or service bulletins, I had to pay for the repairs. I'd like to be reimbursed as it appears this is a known issue.

The vehicle unexpectedly shut down while I was driving on a highway at 65 mph. The engine shutdown completely but the electrical parts were still functioning. Luckily I was driving at a time when there was no traffic so I was able to coast to the side of the road. I waited for about 5 minutes and tried to re-start the vehicle hoping that I could at least get home. After about 20 minutes and a couple of attempts, the vehicle did start but stalled and shut down again a few blocks from home while I was driving at 35mph. Again I was able to coast to the side of the road and tried to re-start it with no success. At this point I had the vehicle towed. The Nissan dealership changed the ipdm and supposedly fixed the vehicle. I picked it up and after driving only 10 miles, it would not start back up. I took it back to the dealer again and they came back saying that now the catalytic converters had to be replaced and informed me that both the ipdm and catalytic converters were a common issue with the Armada. Sounds to me like a recall should be in place for this. I can only thank god for helping me to stay calm when the vehicle shutdown and that neither my kids or I got into an accident on the freeway. What makes this matter worse is that there was no warning! no engine light or anything to warn you of the failure or danger!

For the past two month when starting my vehicle grey smoke comes out of the back of the car. I also have to replace the oil in the car every couple of days.
