how reliable is the armada compared to other suvs?
I have a 2004 Armada with 134,000 on the clock and I have only had regular maintenance on mine. It has a timing chain so don't have to worry about that. Manifolds tend to crack as they have on mine but that is not a big deal to me. There are a lot of aftermarket manifolds/ headers you can get though. The brakes on the 04 and early 05 tend to warp and there was an upgrade rotor that should have been applied. I have put some r1 concepts slotted rotors on mine and have not had any warping problems. Other than that all I have had to do to since out of warranty which for me was since 60,000 miles was just oil changes and diff tranny and transfer case oil changes and the serpentine belt which takes 10 minutes to do. So overall it has been a reliable vehicle for me.
