Something to make everyone feel good about..
I guess despite the brake problems and rattles on Armada, folks still think Nissan is doing quality work. Excerpt from the article is below, read the full article @ http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7865748/

Nissan delivered five first-place winners and got the highest overall quality scores. The Nissan Maxima sedan tied with the Ford Five Hundred among large cars, while the Nissan Titan was the top full-size pickup. The Nissan Murano was the top crossover, the Nissan Armada was the top large SUV and the Infiniti FX35 was the top near-luxury SUV.

Wait a minute, it's not April 1st!!!!

I'm in a battle with Nissan service right now regarding my Maxima, they refuse to pay to replace a catalytic converter, even though my manual clearly says they are covered for 8 years or 80,000 miles. They claim that the front cat is covered by the powertrain warranty, the rest by the emissions warranty. Since I have 64,000 miles, I don't qualify. $950!!!!!!!

Nissan service SUCKS! Good thing their cars are so good, or I wouldn't own one (or two).

Thats a sight for sore eyes. I've had my car for a month and a half and I think its time to enjoy it. I've been to the dealership 5 times for various problems. Keep in mind yall, we see the worse of the worse on here when reading about problems. It doesnt matter what forum you go to, theres gonna be issues about the product that is talked about. Its a melting pot for problems. So despite all the criticism about the brakes, squeeks, etc, The trucks we have are awesome.

I agree, despite the issues (particularly with the '04's) the Armada is an awesome vehicle. I'm just about there with mine- the new brakes feel great and as soon as the parts come in for my front two windows I should be all set. It's taken a long while, but finally some peace!

It's nice to own a vehicle that turns heads and performs as well as this vehicle does- particularly when towing. Plenty of room for passengers, it rides nice and smooth, and this MSNBC article makes me feel a lot better about the resale. I had high hopes when I bought it, but after the problems I thought for sure resale was going to go through the floor. But I guess overall Nissan has pulled it off with the Titan/Armada.

This is concerning. I love my Armada but there are definitely fit and finish issues. Rattles are totally unacceptable from a $40k+ vehicle.
I'm no mechanical engineer, but Nissan has got to put more effort in to resolving this. Example, the rear overhead console is held in by 4 screws and the rest are clips. The clips are not strong enough to hold this huge piece of platic up and ends up rattling like crazy. How hard is it for Nissan to add 4 more screws instead of clips to hold this up. A $1 fix causes them millions of dollars in labor costs and complaints from customers.

The window noises, I've heard everything from bad geometry, to greasing the rails, to rubber channels around the windows, and the rattling has spread from one window to now three of them. It's hard to enjoy all the positive aspects of the Armada when things are rattling in your ear constantly.

I can deal with the brake issue because Nissan is acknowedged it and had come out with a fix. I assume Nissan feels the rattles aren't as important so they haven't tried to hard to fix it. But I can tell you from someone who drives a lot, it is more than an annoyance.
