The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Armada. While backing out of a parking space, the steering wheel became difficult to maneuver and an unknown clicking sound was heard. In addition, the gear shifter was placed in the drive position, but the vehicle rolled backwards. The vehicle had to be restarted in order for the failure to cease. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the engine failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 115,000.

We purchased our car used with 53,000 miles on it. Upon reaching 60,000 miles we heard some knocking and periodically smelled exhaust in the cabin while driving. We took it to the dealership for diagnosis and was told that both exhaust manifolds were cracked and needed replaced. We were also told that Nissan did extend the warranty for this issue on some 2006 Armadas to 80,000 miles, however the time period had been too long for our car to be covered. I contact Nissan Consumer Affairs directly and was told that there was nothing that they could help us with, and were not even willing to tell me if this is a known issue with this year and model of vehicle. I have seen several complaints from other consumers with the same year and model online, and it appears there have not been enough issues yet for Nissan to take any really responsibility.

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

  • 118,000 miles
I had my mom, aunt and 2 small kids in the truck we were on the way to drop my mom off at her home. Once I pulled up in front of her house we noticed the truck smoking. I got out of the vehicle and looked under the hood. I observed wires burning from that point I closed the hood so that the vehicle could cool off. I then walked my mom to her front door as I walked back to my vehicle I observed my truck on fire. I immediately rushed to the vehicle and got my kids and aunt out of the vehicle. The fire department was called and responded within 7 minutes. By the time the fire department responded my truck was in full flames.
