May 08 took truck in for oil change complained of brakes making noise. I was told brakes look fine. Aug 10 car made noise as I was turning left, brake petal went all the way to floor before it would stop. Dealership said calipers were worn out and sticking. Truck has 48000 miles they said brakes were being eaten up by calipers. They want $1,800 to fix truck. I could not get a straight answer on why calipers would malfunction this early. I call Nissan to complain about calipers, I was told it was out of warranty and therefore they could not help me.

September 25, 2007 my 2006 Nissan Armada 4X2 lost braking power. I was traveling on a quiet road near the Nissan dealership so I took my foot off the gas and rolled to a stop. Deland Nissan said the delto sensor malfunctioned and had to be reprogramed. They also replaced the brake booster. I was told by the service manager, bill warfield, that this has occured to other owners and is the solution given by Nissan. The problem has been rectified on the 2008 Nissan Armadas. Ther is no recall, even though this is occuring to other Armada owners. This is a life threatening defect. How can Nissan be made to recall these vehicles before someone is killed?

In the past 6 months intermittently the brake light comes on and the brakes pulsate when pushed on and there is no control of the brakes. I took it into the dealership yesterday when it started again and it turned out to be the vdc unit needed to be reprogrammed. The computer gave them the code C1179.

When pushing the brake pedal I was getting a bad shaking vibration in the steering wheel and front of vehicle was pulling real bad to the left. I took my vehicle to the Nissan dealer where it was originally purchased upon picking my vehicle up the Nissan service advisor informed me that the rotors were resurfaced and new brake pads were installed. He also stated that this was a problem with the 2004 & 2005 models but was not suppose to be an issue with the 2006 models. It has been 2 months now since I had this problem and I am getting the same problem again.
