My brake judder will be cured next week because I got my official letter from Nissan stating that since I have taken the truck in 3 times to be repaired, I qualify for the "fix" . Did any one else get a letter, and the "brake judder fix" yet, and did it work?

I did and it works great...better than new. You'll have tons less brake dust and the brakes have a much smoother, "silkier" feel to them.

I just bought a new 2005 Armada; it may have been manufactured earlier in the year. It soulds like, from looking around, that it could have the brake problem. Any way to find out for sure (other than experiencing it) - inspection, or published dates, or...?

new brakes

According to Nissan, the "new brakes" are on Armadas with vin numbers newer than 5n1 aa08 xx 4n 736646, this roughly corresponds to anything newer than June 05. The vin # is on your dash.

Got the brake jutter fix a couple of months ago. Called dealer, made appt, took 3 hours to fix. I didn't get a letter, but the tech told me it was a bulletin, and would honor it as warranty work. New rotors on the front work great.

Thats only for the new Torque Member. It does not include the new rotors. Mine was built July 05, has 600 miles and is covered with brake dust.

I've been reading up on the Armada for months and eventually purchased a new '05 two months ago. Became aware of the brake issue reading posts here but was optomistic about the vehicle. After only 1700 miles, with conservative braking I might add, the brake 'jutter' has begun and become very annoying. It absolutely floors me that a new vehicle would need brake service at less than two thousand miles. I'll see shortly how the dealership approaches it.

I didn't get the letter, but I got the judder at 2200 miles. It's at the dealership today. The service advisor told me it's getting new front rotors, new pads all around, re-surfacing the rear rotors and some caliper spring upgrades....

I'll let you know how it goes. Hopefully it's..... :noworries

I have an Armada with 5000 miles on it and purchased it in April. I had been looking at the tires and noticed feathering on the front right tire. Today I brought it in for a wheel rotation and alignment and also mentioned a slight vibration in the steering wheel around 45mph during braking, but it wasn't bad at all. When I got it back, I signed a second work order/receipt for the brake fix. I did not expect it. They told me that my truck was built in the month of March 2005 and may not have gotten the upgrade at the factory. I was totally happy. I could have lived with the slight shaking, as long as it didn't get any worse, but they just changed it out. I saw the total bill for the upgrade and it was close to $800 in parts alone. I thought that was cool, all for $20 and some change. Just thought I'd share. However, I don't feel anything different with the braking. We'll see after a few hundred miles. :)
