2006 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

Armada 8-cyl

On August 11 2010, while I was driving with my 2 kids 6 and 2 yrs old, my 2006 Nissan Armada caught on fire, my kids and I were able to smell like something was burning, but we were not able to see any smoke or fire anywhere around us, it was about 5 minutes later that my daughter was able to see smoke coming from under the truck, , she said the smoke went by her window, I looked thru my mirrors but I was not able to see anything, I looked at the temperature gauges on the dashboard everything seemed to be working just fine, so I told my daughter if it was our car burning I supposed there would be an indicator that would tell us that something was wrong with the vehicle, about 3 minutes later my daughter said she saw smoke again, so my first thought was to stop and check, make sure we were ok, I stopped a soon as I was able to get off the road and parked on a safe place. I stopped about 2 mins later after she told me. I turned the motor off and got out of the truck, , so I decided to go around and checked everywhere, when I started walking towards the front of the truck, right on front of the hood I could smell like burning very close and very strong smell, and the next thing I see as I knelt down right in front of the truck is the fan on fire. I could not believe what my eyes where looking at, so my first reaction was to go back in he car and get my kids out of the burning truck, right away she started to unbuckle her 2 yr old brother. We started running to get away from the fire, while I was calling 911.after the investigation it was determined that the fire was caused due to a manufacturer defect that the truck had on the cooling fan. That truck had a recall on June 2008, of which I never had a notice of. Until this day im still waiting on any kind of response from Nissan.I bought the vehicle brand new so I was hoping that Nissan would take any responsibility for it, since they endangered our lives. And I the vehicle was a total loss.
