I took my baby to the dealer for rattles, steering wheel shake on the highway, brake jutter, pulling to the right, wind noise in the back and cabin booming.

I got a call today to pick it up! Wahoo!

Here's what they said.....
remachined rotors
replaced pads
replaced "certain" caliper hardware
rebalanced and rotated tires after road force testings
ordered foam kit for rear wind noise (I have to take it back for installation)
they did not even address the cabin booming or rattles

The service writer seemed to be confused about the rear window wind noise and cabin booming. I has to tell them that they were two seperate issues. I guess I'll have to bring the TSB (again, I brought it yesterday and gave it to the service writer) for them to fix the cabin booming when they install the foam kit for the rear windows.

I guess I will mention the driver door and dash rattles when I get there since they must have overlooked those things. They never even said anything about fixing the rattles when they called me to pick up my car.

By the way, I have to mention that when I told them about the cabin booming issue, the service writer said it may not be cureable. That's when I pulled out the TSB and said, "Are you saying that this isn't cureable?" response came back.

Thanks for listening. I just had to tell someone! My wife just says uh huh, uh huh! Useless!!!

Well, I have to say that I am glad that I am not the only person having a problem with their Armada. Initially when I took it in, the service mgr insisted that it was the way I was driving the vehicle that was causing the problem on my brakes. I finally switched dealerships and am up to about 6 brake jobs on my '04(purchased at the end of '03). Did I also mention that I am over my 36 mile(or 3 yr) warranty mark and have not paid for any of the work thus far. The last time it was in the dealership I wanted to rent the Infiniti (brother to the Armada), but when I went to pick it up, the rental agency advised me that it was still in the shop for a brake job and was not available.
