We're back! This is our 2nd (well, 3rd) Armada. We technically don't count the 1st one. We bought a used Armada back in 2011 and found out when we got home that it had been painted. Never buy a car in the rain! Our second Armada was a 2012 SV. My wife loved it but wasn't 100% comfortable parking it. She kept it for about 2 years and wanted to go back to a car. She then wanted to go back to an SUV so we bought a Honda Pilot. Never again. That was our first honda and it will be our last. Too many things we didn't like about it to list. About a month ago, we purchased a brand new 2019 Armada Platinum. They were almost giving them away with all the rebates and discounts so we couldn't hold back. We couldn't be happier. Glad to be back in the Nissan family again. We opted for the Captains chairs in the back. Our kids love it as well. Nissan has done a great job with developing a smooth ride. Sits and rides much better than other large SUV's. The one negative is the gas mileage but my wife drives less than 5 miles round trip each day.

Thanks! I forgot to mention a very important piece. Our kids like to name all of our vehicles. I remember a few years ago there was a kid in the little league world series who introduced himself as "I'm Big Al and I hit dingers". So as we were thinking of names, that came to me. The first couple days our kids kept talking about how big it was so it just fit. We named it "Big Al". My wife is not crazy about the name but she's getting used to it.

We got our 2nd one 3 days ago! Like you, 2019, the discounts were insane! So we bought new rather than the 2017 “unknown issue” used armada on the lot! So far she’s been fun! Tons of new technology to learn. Struggling to get homelink to link with my garage door openers which are old. Followed directions and still nothing. I’ll keep at it though! Enjoy your new ride! And love how it’s also your wife doing all the driving! Mine loves it and I get the payment!😂

That's exciting, congrats. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as we have. I haven't heard of any issues with setting up the homelink. We have a Genie opener and it linked up the first time. Hopefully, you'll be able to get it set up. You'll have to share some pics with us. My wife says she's driving hers till the wheels fall off.

Cost a ton so hopefully they both drive them until wheels fall off! I’ll keep paying the bill!😂
