Sorry, but Nissan has a terrible history of fixing anything. The Armada is a poorly designed vehicle, except for the engine and tranny. The rest of the vehicle is sub par for a truck of this size. Brakes are terrible; Suspension springs break prematurely; A/C lines located in an impossible place....who ever heard of having to life the body off the frame to get to them? The wheel bearings are weak and have to be changed fairly regularly;; the evaporative canister in the rear has a valve that breaks and they charge you $353. for it; The ABS system comes on when it isn't supposed to causing braking problems which are very dangerous. They fool around with re programing the controller and try to get everyone to pay an "analysis fee" beforehand, then try to get you to buy a brake booster to fix it, which is a big crock. They tell you they perform safety inspections on your vehicle but don't do it. I could go on and on. Never again will I give Nissan any business....and don't think Toyota is any better either...witness the lousy quality of Toyotas also for the last four years. I'll stick with GM in the future, maybe even Ford.
The vaunted Japanese, who everybody was fauning over in the 1980's are now making junk folks....let's face facts.

Oh yeah? Try looking where they go over the rear axle....and don't county on a/c to get you through the summer. I too have an 04 which has been loaded with problems and shear manufacturing defects. I'll never buy Nissan again.
You must be the luckiest guy on earth, if you really own an Armada from 2004.

Sorry, I fixed the picture link. Here it is. It is kind of hard to see, but it was the small line on top of the frame rail. It rubbed against the line just next to it. Sorry I never got any repaired pics.

Dodged a bullet..... Steelership fixed with o-ring. Over the phone quote was 860.00 w/o looking at it. After some testing 270.00 for O-ring. How long will it last? That's the next question.

$270 for an O-ring? I assume that included system re-charge too? Regardless, glad to hear you got her fixed.
