Ive got a Tahoe right now and hate all the problems. Been reading the forums and notice all the problems with Armadas. Does anyone know how the 2006 Armadas are doing as far as problems go? My other choice is a Toyota Sequoia, but I really like the power and look of the Armada. Thanks

First of all, welcome to ClubArmada!

The '06 Armada has been significantly reduced in problems like rattles, brakes, squeaking noises, etc. I have an '04 Armada and it's not bad at all. Since I'm not legally allowed to drive it yet (i'm 15), but I must say the power is amazing (I drove it yesterday around my block) :D The interior is spacious and comfy. The DVD Navi. is incredible aswell as the DVD player. The looks of the Armada is wonderful and bold and really stands out..believe me, you'll be getting a lot of head turns;) It's a very unique SUV since not a lot of people have them compared to the everyday Ford or GM car. Also, if you're into modding your car, www.burtmanindustries.com has lots of mods for the Armada like rims, grille, and what not which will make it look even better. :cool:

06 here also, 7500 miles, and loving every minute of it. Only problem is, I think the gas tank has a hole in it, every time I get in it to drive, the tank is empty. :)

There were more problems with the Toyotas than the Armadas first year. The problems were basically cleared up in '05. The Toyota is the worst one to buy now as next year they come out with a new body for the truck, and probalby soon thereafter for the SUV, and the resale will plummet.
Compared to the Tahoe, you will have far fewer problems. Problems are exaggerated on sites like this because you have thousands of people posting. Its frankly one of the most reliable Full Size on the market. The current Toy would be first, the Armada second. BTW, the current Toy isn't really full size. Its 7/8ths size with a small underpowered engine, which is the same size as the base V8 in the Grand Cherokee. Slow. Next year they come out with a bigger motor. Wait until the first year blues are gone though as even Toyotas have similar problems first year. :hi:

I bet the 07 Tundra/Sequoia will be full size and have some real beans under the hood. Toyota is not the kind of outfit to let Nissan or anyone else one-up them for very long.

Most problems for this car was only normal first year problems and even those can be solved quite easily. My 04' Qx was a little rattley at first and a few trips to service department got all those problems cleared up and now its rattle free. But You can never forget about the power or space this thing has lots of room and its really versatile, The second row is huge BTW.Bout' a month back I was parking the car (I park for my parents, im only 14 btw) and it was pretty wet and i was going around a bend at like 2-4 mph and i put my foot down, i felt the inside tire break VERY loose then in a spilt second both tires get grip and BOOOM i was jolted forward with a satifying surge of power. Had a big grin after for the rest of the day. And On a trip to Davis my Dad cruised at 70mph (steady, no braking) and we had 3 people in the car and A/c on, we averaged 20mpG the whole way. The dam good looks just wraps the whole package. Either Qx or Armada you cant go wrong with either.

I have an 06 also, currently at 7,500 miles. The only problem I've encountered was the squeeky passenger seat which I resolved easily with a screw driver and some locktite. I prefer to avoid going to the dealership for help regarding small problems such as this. It's just less stress for me that way and besides, atleast I know what has been done to my truck. Over all, I'm very pleased with my Armada and to this day, I still get alot of complements! So choose wisely and buy the beast!
