Hey guys, probably this is already done before but in case it hasn't, how about we say why we love our cars??
When I was shopping for an suv 3 months ago I found this site and I notice a lot of negative comments and description of problems but I think more of us have very positive feed back and experiance with our cars so to help and balance a little bit and inform to who ever is looking into buying and Armada just say what you love of it the most. :cool:
I'll start by mentioning the number one reason(for me): is different than most suv's (seem everybody owns the same boring ford or gmc suv), lots of room, power and I just love how it looks, how about you??

I will say i must turn more heads here in sacramento than ever. My 05 SE armada doesn't have the cadillac escalade status, but it isnt your typical yukon/suburban. I love when people walk by with thier significant other and stare at the truck. They stop and ask themselves, "what kind of truck is that?". I have complete strangers tell me as I step out of the vehicle, that I have a nice looking trucking. What attracked me the most was the huge interior space. I personally love how the sides of the truck above the wheel well's flares. It gives it a real beafy look and the truck is a monster. I love it to death. Its my very first truck ever at the age of 30, and I have to say i have been quite pleased so far. I've only had it a month and my family and I love it.

The power, the tranny, the Towing ability, the handling..... Friday I had to tow a car down I64-I77. This is the WV Turnpike which is Very up and down and lots of tight turns and swooping curves. Was going to Charlotte, so also had to go over Fancy Gap in VA. For 645 mi round trip I averaged 64mph including two gas stops on this very tough to tow on road. Got 11.5 mpg on the way down and 13.3 on the way back with the empty trailer. This is a great tow vehicle. I do hate the rattles, the cowl shake over bumps and frost heaves; the crappy brakes,etc. But the thing performs like a champ. Now it needs to be built properly.

I can haul three kids, two dogs and a ton of "stuff".

When my wife drives with the kids on I-5, I know they are as safe as they can be.

Even with the brake problems, I fully expect the powertrain and other components to last as long as Nissan's are known to last (312k on a Quest)

For me, the first time I stepped on the gas pedal, I was sold. The Aramada feels light and nimble. Sounds great right off the showroom floor. And, it's not rebadged Tahoe/Yukon/Escalade/Suburban/whatever.

0-60 in 7secs. Not bad for any SUV or car out there.

The looks and the powertrain did it for me. Regardless of the issues with the early ones (like mine) it's still the best in class in my opinion.

First off was the power train and engine with the great towing specs. Also I felt I got more bang for the buck. It seems the basic SE was more fully loaded than anything Chevy or Ford had to offer. You have to pay for the extras. Then when my dealer subtracted ALL of the options and started dealing off the base price, I was more then convinced.
