Well I have started experiencing the brake problems others have(juddering,vibration) about 100 miles ago...My Armada has about 3900 miles on it. I called my local dealership(Visalia,CA) and right away the tech knew what I was talking about and scheduled me to get the rotor and pad replacement. He stated that this is the "final fix" and was advised by Nissan to do this w/ all Armada's regardless of any previous brake "fixes." I am also experiencing rattles in front driver door and rear windows are both making unusual motor noises when rolling up or down. Both problems are going to be addressed...I will post later on the results.

.......the only thing that upset me is that I am not being assigned a rental. I have the gold preferred ext. warranty but the dealership said..."Nissan unfortunately does not provide rentals on warranty work,"....BS!!! I thought so I called Nissan Consumer Affairs and again was told the same thing by the Rep...Is this true???? I have read on other posts that rentals were given out.

Check the paperwork of your warranty, the vehicle must be in the shop for a certain number of hours for you to qualify for a rental.

This again is a dealership discretion item. The dealerships can use their "goodwill" budget and get you a rental. Yes, Nissan does pay for it.
I was given a rental for everytime they touched the brakes included when they only turned the rotors and replaced the pads.
But the service writer has to take an extra step in filling out a piece of paper.

I don't think it is discretionary if you have the extended warranty from Nissan. It specifically states that you are entitled to a rental car for warranty repairs. The number of days for the car is dependent on the number of billable repair hours.

New 2006 Armada

Has anyone heard if the 2006 models are having the brake judder problem? Nissan bought back my 2004, but I love the Armada and would purchase it again if I knew for sure they have fixed the problem.

Does anyone know someone who has the '06

New Brakes

I live in Miami and we just went through WILMA. My MADA had only a few minor scratches but the day after the storm my Service Engine , VDC and the slip light on the dash came on. I took it to the dealer they asked me if I felt any pulsating in the brakes. I said "NO". The tech took my MADA for a spin and the TECH advised that he was going to have the brake kit upgrade put on my MADA. The front rotors were replaced with the new upgrade and pads were replaced. The rear rotors were resurfaced and they received new pads. The MADA brake upgrade is great and the pedal feel is good. Also I do not believe there is a lot of brake dust with the new brakes. My MADA had 12,700 miles on them. I was the only one who went to the dealer that day so I had two mechanics working on my MADA.

Just got the new rotors and pads on the "final" brake fix two days ago. The braking feels really good. Better stopping power as well.

The question is, should I do the break-in or just go easy on the break for the next 1000 miles? I spoke to the service advisor and he told me I don't have to do any break-in, just drive like normal.

I personally didn't have a break in and the dealer said nothing of this.
Still no probs.
