As a first timer here, it is refreshing to see that I have not come across this problem among the members at Club Armada. I bought my '04 Armada LE 4x4, new and untitled on 3.28.05. When I arrived home after the purchase it had 96 test drive miles on it. My test drive was more than 40 miles and I didn't notice any problems. The first day, & 100 miles, I noticed very subtly when putting it into drive the gear taking a few seconds to catch. The next day, & the next 100 miles, I drove up a pretty steep hill, reversed down a bit and put it into drive to go back up the hill. When it was in drive it was rolling down the hill like a manual trans. I had to press hard on the gas for it to catch and it squealed the tires and left skid marks. From that point on it became more noticeable with each time I had to put it into drive. I had to press hard on the gas for the drive to catch. I called my husband, to see if it was in 4WD or something that with the push of a button it could be fixed . . . my kids are forever climbing into the drivers seat playing around (w/o the ignition started). Just to make sure I wasn't quacked, I tried it in my driveway, backed out, put it in drive and again - had to press hard - screaching tires and skid marks and this time, disapproving neighbors. Took it back to the dealership that evening, 3.30.05, had it less than 48 hours. Diagnosed as needing a whole new transmission. Has anyone ever heard of this happening? I'm pretty sure it is a late production '04, but still has obviously sat for awhile. Could sitting for months have been the problem? I tried trading it for another, returning it and inquiring about a 3 day rescind policy. No. However, I was able to get a new '05 Armada vs. the Quest they offered as a loaner car . . . we have four kids and the sedans were not an option. Glad the dealership pulled thorugh with the '05 Armada cuz it will be 2 weeks tomorrow that I have had this loaner. While I don't think I will have anymore trans problems (maybe I am being naive) I am concerned that other things will fall apart on the car. And I mean other than the common brake, window and noise problems. Anyone experince this??? I love the get-up-and-go the truck has, especially when you compare it to my other choice car, the Sequoia. And I love the smooth, quiet ride compared to my Land Rover Discovery. And of course my husband loves it for the roominess over the Rover and the power over both. Any knowledge, experience, insights, winning lottery tickets would be most helpful.
