Had to Laugh

Had to laugh on that one. Probably based on trips to the stealer for repairs. We know that we've had some brake issues and '04 stuff as well. The funniest thing is that they don't mention the Armada at all. Most of the others would mention any vehicles sharing badges and mechanicals, like Ford/Mazda, guess the Armada didn't share the same electrical issues (??) as the Infiniti. Maybe some QX guys can shed some light.

Go Armada/QX56! -- WORST rated vehicle by Consumer Reports -- over 50 % of owners had to drag their sleds to the trashbag dealers for REPAIRS.

Oh for all you mada junkies: feast your eyes on this direct quote from Consumer Reports:

"According to the newest data from Consumer Reports, Nissan Motor's full-size Infiniti QX sport utility vehicle has the worst ratings possible for the reliability of its electrical system, brakes, body integrity, power equipment and body hardware. It is 300% less reliable than the average car, and a QX owner must feel the way an owner of an E.M.F. model felt: What's going to go wrong with my car today?"

Love my mada about as much as a wife who would screw the whole neighborhood.

Dude, you've already lost any bit of credibility you had. Sound like a weeping GM marketing guy maybe, cruising forums of the market share takers.
Really, you paraphrased, it wasn't Armada/QX56, the article was on QX56, have you no shame? Oh thats right, maybe you're in marketing.
Sorry about your wife.

I have not seen the Consumer Reports, but from the responses here, it seems as though the QX56 rating does not translate to the Armada.

And, I have to say that with all the cars I have owned over the years I can't think of one that has not been to the dealer at least once. Including a BMW X5 and an Infiniti G35. But, I would still recommend most of the cars...

I think, perhaps, the more money you spend, the less patience you have with problems and having to go back to the dealer. (And yes, this is from personal experience) :rolleyes:

Exactly my point my Qx56 didnt have any major problems like GM SUV's but since it was a first year model it had little annoying noises and that brake problem(which was fixed by the dealer on the first try).

Hmmm....nobody's (press)talking about the reliablity of other manufactuers when they put a completely new design on the road. It took years for ford and chevy to redesign there full size SUVee's and I still chose the Armada over the new Expedition. The New Tahoe/Yukon looks promising but I have no plans to trade. Nissan made a bold move with the Armada/QX and the results are pretty impressive. Give this bad boy a couple more years and chances are I'll get another one.


As for Suenissan....well...why bother.

I agree. It seems as though Nissan has made giant steps with improving the problems unearthed in the '04's with the '05. And, it seems that there are not a lot of posts, as of yet, of problems with the '06.

If Nissan keeps true to form, I would bet in a couple of model years the Armada will be a more solid performer.

Maybe Nissan, and or Consumer Reports can put a shot to the bow via a nice lawsuit for libel on "Suenissan" for putting out a completely false accusation, quotation regarding the Armada. I'm sure he'd be the first person to sue someone if they printed something about his company that wasn't true. Should be worth $100K, oh wait, maybe $250K, maybe $250 million, actual damages don't matter right?? How about a Finders fee??? Hmmmmm??? Where is that excess CO when I'm in need of a good dillusion?

Oh yeah, sorry to hear about your wife "Suenissan", although I'm sure your neighbors love her and your Armada :D

Look at the Lincoln's review, pretty bad too!!!

"With a projected reliability rating that is 181% lower than that of the average car, Ford's Lincoln Navigator sport utility vehicle is the least reliable car on the market, according to Consumer Reports"

Troll.
CR's "data" is based on '04s, not '06s. They had brake rotor problems just the way Toyota did on their Sequoia. Toyota took 4 years to fix and didn't honor the warranty. Nissan took 18 months to fix and all are covered 100%.

CR rates current models, '06s, based on past problems without distinguishing how bad the problem is, or if the maker addressed the problem. The "problems" in the grand scheme are minor and have been addressed. CR is a crock.
