I sure am sorry to read all these impurfections. My 04 Mada' is by far not perfect but as with most assembly line products shakes rattles and rolls will occur. I have only one and its comming from the half circular plastic cap over the spedometer panel. Other than the light for the drivers side window locks going out I've had nothing but enjoyment for my Smoke 04'Armada. Hope everyone gets what they deserve and want, best of luck.

P.S I'd love to see some more pictures so please everyone start posting, especially in the Gallery. :p

I need to get me a camera and take some pics of my baby.

Starting a positive thread is probobly a good idea, especially for those who love their Armadas but tend to get carried off into the dark side... cough

I agree, it's pretty easy to read about problems and start to worry.

Every time I fire mine up I like it more. Except for the rattles that Nissan should have taken care of prior to sending to the dealers; I'm generally happy with mine. It's nice to drive an SUV that has some balls.

I'm starting to see a lot more of them around town. I think they are going to become the next Soccer Mom fad vehicles. I think the Suburbans have fallen out of favor somewhat with the Soccer Mom crowd. The Hummer H2s are too expensive to justify and they have cramped interiors. And last but not least, most of the MiniVan Moms have worn out their vans and want something different. It will be interesting to see if the Armadas catch on.

I think that is my biggest pet peeve. I see so many 'Moms' around here with 8-9 seater SUVs, 1-2 kids, and never a spot of mud. Nobody even owns a boat around here! People slow down to 5mph to go over bumps in this town, and the looks you get for driving around a little muddy, it's crazy. There's nothing like being stuck behind an 80-yr-old individual going 40mph in the fast lane, driving with a Hemi or a Vortec 6.0. :(

Great idea to have a positive thread. It's easy for sites to focus on the negative. Yet, there's so many good things about these vehicles.

Not braggin', but no problems with my Armada after 4 months of daily use - none, nada, ziltch... well, you get the picture. Might just be the luck of the draw, or not. I'm averaging right around 13.7 MPG on regular fuel. Not great, but not too shabby either.

I've had several occasions where wifey and I have used the big Nissan to take relatives out to dinner, etc., and they've all been very impressed by the room and comfort. And, my Armada has turned out to be a great foul-weather vehicle with good balance and control, very solid on it's feet.
