Armada 8-cyl

  • 131,000 miles


We were left stranded on 2 occasions (3/11/14 and 4/22/14) because the fuel display read at least 1/4 tank of gas when, in fact, we found the tank was empty. Once in the middle of a windy road on a bad curve, the other in a parking lot. This is the pertinent recall that is associated with our vehicle from the website: Report receipt date: Mar 03, 2010 NHTSA campaign number: 10V074000 component(s): Fuel system, other all products associated with this recall: Vehicle makemodelmodel year(s) nissanarmada2005-2009 we have spoken with the dealership where our vehicle has been since Monday, 4/28/14, and the corporate/regional offices for Nissan. 2 diagnostic tests have been run, and did confirm that this is the issue with our vehicle. The corporate office will not approve the repair for our vehicle and now will not return my calls from Wednesday and today. We have been given an estimate from the dealership and have been told they have also been notified this repair will not be covered by Nissan regardless of it being the exact issue covered under the listed recall, and our vehicle is a 2005 Nissan Armada. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

My vehicle is experiencing the exact same issue as reported in NHTSA campaign number: 10V074000. My fuel gauge stops working at about a quarter of a tank, and I have a high mileage vehicle. Somehow, my vehicle is not under the recall.

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

My 2005 Nissan Armada has the problem described in NHTSA #10V-074. Nissan claims my vehicle is not part of the recall even thought the recall is for 2005 - 2009 Nissan Armadas. It is very frustrating to have a safety problem, learn that the manufacturer is aware of it and has a recall, but to be told that it doesn't apply to your vehicle. Clearly it does, because I have the exact problem described, "issue can cause the fuel gauge to show that the vehicle still has some fuel, typically about one quarter tank, when fuel tank is empty."

The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Armada. The contact stated that while driving 60 mph the vehicle ran out of gasoline in the middle of the highway.

  • 143,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Armada. While driving approximately 50 mph, an unknown warning light began flashing on the dashboard and the vehicle slowly began to lose power until finally stalling. The contact was able to coast off the roadway. A tow truck was called who added more gasoline to the vehicle. The vehicle then resumed normal operation. The contact drove to a local fuel station and refueled the vehicle. The contact stated the fuel level gauge would indicate the fuel tank was one half full when it was actually empty. He was able to locate NHTSA recall campaign id number: 10V074000 (fuel system, other: Storage: Fuel gauge system) but when inquiring with the dealer, he was told his VIN was not included with the recall. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 143,000 and the current mileage was 144,000.
