I was on the highway and the brake light came on. When I was exiting the ramp I heard a loud noise and the brakes were grinding. I had to swerve out of the lane to the shoulder because I had lil to no brake power. This is not the 1st time this incident has happened to me. I don't know what the issue is but Nissan needs to resolve it fast because the next person may not be so lucky. My truck is currently at the dealership now do to the brake issue and of course they are unable to detect the problem. I am replacing the brakes and rotors and hopefully that will help elevate the problem. Someone needs to do something and fast before someone is fatally affected by this issue. I will never buy a Nissan again. If this issue does not stop I will be trading my vehicle in and not for another Nissan.

On the listed date above our family was on en route to our vacation destination, traveling in our Armada with camper in tow. While going thru the mountains in Virginia we had lost all power to our transmission causing us to pull over onto the shoulder of the expressway. After some time we where finally able to get towed to a dealership in covington. As soon as the service manager looked at the vehicle he new exactly what had happened. He explained that the tail pipe had disconnected from the muffler and that the hot exhaust burned up the wire harness that controlled all the power to the transmission. This they had seen and fixed 4 to 5 times at this dealership. My complaint is that the piping from the muffler some how eroded away and disconnected allowing the exhaust to burn up the wire harness, as well as the hose that supplies the compressed air to the air shocks. This to me is a very serious safety issue. Fortunately we were in the right hand lane and no other vehicles were near to cause a potential accident. We were able to get over safely although we had lost all transmission power going up this mountain. Not sure if anybody else has reported this safety issue. But Nissan must know about it based on the service manager seeing this that many times. Why would one have your electric wiring running so close to a potential hot source that could disable your vehicle while driving? I recently was talking to a coworker who has a 2004 Armada and told him about what happened to us. He had said that he just had his tail pipe welded back on but had it done at a muffler shop so this was not documented at a dealership. He had said that he could smell something burning but he had no other issues. He was lucky and he may want to check it out because of the experience that I had. Please look into this because I feel it is a serious safety issue.

Bought this 2005 Nissan Armada new in 2005. Since the day I bought it the drivers door has been very noisy and opens slightly when at highway speeds and hit a bump. Dealer says they cannot duplicate he issue and it is normal. Also have had the truck in 5 or more times because front end shimmy makes steering wheel shake at highway speeds. They have balanced the truck everytime and still has not helped. Only 25,000 mile on the truck and all these problems. They need to replace the drivers door and find the issue in the front end making the steering wheel shake. Not happy!
