i have now been in to preformance nissan in duarte 8 times withing the past month, i feel like i work there now, in fact im there right now getting my Front Passenger seat checked out again for falling apart, they have tried to fix it, they have replaced it, they have done a BULLETEN what ever the hell that is on it, and now there are trying to fix it again. I have now reported this problem to nissan and have lost faith in my armada by calling it in as a LEMON, now there going to launch a full investigation like CSI or somthing and get back to me by the end of the work day tomorrow. What do you think will happen to my OHHH SO FAITHFULL ARMADA, and its faithless captain?

The 8 bad visits may be a reflection of the dealership service rather than the ARMADA itself. I would try a new dealership and keep the faith.

I can understand frustration when you have to go the shop to fix little problems. Lord knows my '04 was in the shop A LOT when I first bought it. The main lesson I learned is to GO TO ANOTHER DEALERSHIP. I can't stress it any more than that- it made a huge difference in my case. Now my Armada is (mostly) fine and drives like a dream. All of my problems were small.

What specific problems are you having? You don't mention it in your post. And I'm curious, who's the captain if you aren't?

That sounds ridiculous. Its a chair, not rocket science. Sounds like you have a bad dealer. I'd find a better shop in your area and just get the sucker fixed right in one trip. It almost sounds like they are milking you for hours. :rolleyes:

Come on down to Douglas Nissan in Huntington Beach, CA. I have had great luck with the dealer. They have fixed all of my TSB's and did my brake fix on the first visit. I deal with Jeff in service. Tell them Kevin from Omaha Steaks sent you. On some visits where they need my truck overnight, they set me up with a rental car from Enterprise.

Give them a call , it will be worth your drive. I had bad luck at Connell Nissan and then went to Douglas and I was very happy.

714-842-6666, ask for Jeff in service.

Nothing but good advice from all man. Remember all dealers are idependant and only follow guidelines from the factory. That's why the haggle you so much for good feedback on the surveys so they can get kuto's and cold hard cash from the corp.

Mista,

Seriously, call Douglas and see what they can do for you. Its only 40 minutes south. I know because my mother in law lives in West Covina. If they need your car any longer, you can get a rental and have your Armada fixed. End of story and complaints.

I feel your pain Mista! Mine has been in the shop 14 times now (2 dealers). Four of those times have been for the same two problems (backup sensors and 'cigarette lighters') and guess what??? Still not fixed! I also have been on the phone w/ Nissan USA 4 times now and it really hasn't helped much.

We are scheduled to go in next week for Fix #15 to replace the steering wheel and the back hatch (which was broken at some point when they were trying to fix the backup sensors). Now the driver's side door & overhead console are rattling like crazy too.

We are seriously considering starting the lemon process. As much as I love the look and feel of the Mada it is really becoming a nightmare.

Yea i did, but Preformance is the closest one to me with the best service department, el monte is ok but not as good and glendale just sucks. I got no where else to go
One of our tenants used to be a tech at Performance, according to him, they had the lowest satisfaction score of any dealer in the LA area (this is about a year old). I haven't had the best experiences there either.

I had mine bought back under the Lemon Law cause my Armada lived at the dealership more than it did in my driveway.. Luckily I have 3 cars so it was not that much of a hardship, but one would think a vehicle that cost $43K wouldnt fall apart everytime you get in it.

Just for the record my Buyback took 4 months from start to finish.. Good thing I have a lot of free time at work.

Maybe we should give him a break, he bought a Tahoe after all. :duh:Maybe some sympathy is in order.
The thing about GMs that kills me is you can't tell if your looking at a '05 or a '95 cause they all look the same. Bland.
