- Acceptable comfort, good acceleration, storage, fold down seats.
- Breaks and rotors needing replacement (2006 LE model) at 14,000 !
Purchased As New
Was impressed with it when first purchased, until we began having problems with the brakes. VDC light on, brake light on. Dealer said we need new rotors and pads with the vehicle having only 14,000 miles and they handed us an estimate of nearly $900.00 to do this!
Despite having their best extended warranty, along with the maintenance agreement, this is the out of pocket they expect to be paid with such little mileage.
I would not purchase another one, because this does not seem to be a problem that has been solved, nor are they interested in solving. After "service" they didn't even top off the fluids!
It was the first Nissan we purchased, and it will surely be our last....read morehide

- Quality, looks, handling, styling, ease of controls
- Gas Mileage, Cruise Control functons need to be lit
We got a great end of year deal on our Armada. We have 2 kids and there is plenty of room for bags and other things. We have the captains chairs in the middle row and I wish I had the bench seating instead. Only for the kids. Gas milage is horrendous but I knew all of that before purchasing the vehicle. Test drove the Sequioa, Expedition, and Tahoe before settling on the Armada. The looks just drew us to it....read morehide

- very roomy interior, nice power, sharp looking
- climate controls, roof console vibrates, fuel economy bad
I bought a dealer demo 06' with 6,000 miles on it. I love the looks of the vehicle and always buy Nissan's because they are a quality product. I have a 00' Frontier and it is a warrior truck with 107,000 miles on it. I love the interior room of the vehicle and the power and pick-up is great. It is a big vehicle but rides and handles excellent. The exterior design of the vehicle is very eye appealing and puts the other big SUV's to shame. The only real concern I have is the center roof console with the DVD and storage compartment seems to rattle quite a bit. The climate controls take a little to get used to but overall they are tolerable. I was prepared for the bad fuel economy from the get-go so I don't consider it a big issue. Overall I fell in love with the truck and waited patiently for a couple years to get it. Now that I have it I am not disappointed at all and look forward to many years of driving around my "BIG RIG"!...read morehide

- looks/easy to drive/handling/features
Truck is my first SUV, runs great, has awesome features, dvd, auto lift gate (open/close), very roomy for family and friends, DVD plays great while driving, superior sound system(LE). Would definitely recommend to anyone. I have compared to other big suvs, no contest...

- Effecient 4WD in desert/sand, internal space good.
- Could not find any
After four months of experiencing Armada LE 4x4 2006, I can say it is a great value for the money. It is according to my expectation fits all my requirements for family and for joy times. I am amazed how effeciet its 4WD system, specially in free sands.
I have two points that I would like to share here. First, it is a 5.7 lit engine car which makes its feul consumption very high, so it is really not a day-to-day ride. Second, even the LE trim is not desinged to be a luxurious car, so do not have a higher expectation.

- Comfortable. Very heavy truck, makes you feel safe. Nice looking overall
- I would like it to be faster from 0-30mph. I must admit it is a little doggy.
My biggest complaint is that the interior roof of the truck is not supported well enough to accomodate the add-on features of a DVD/sunroof. It vibrates so badly that it is difficult to see the TV screen. My kids don't even want to watch it because it gives them a headache and/or hurts their eyes. So much for the $1600 DVD feature.
My other issue is the tiny handle to get into the glass in the gate. It is too small. The other issue is the door handles. Frequently I get a pinch because of the delay in the retraction of the handle after I open the door in the rear seats....read morehide

- Luxury, Sporty, Good Fuel Economy, Safty Vehicle, Smooth Ride, Excellent body style-sleek SUV.
I recently purchased the Armada SE RED BRAWN. I call it my cotton-candy because its very sweet both on the rode and for my pocket. I would compare this SUV to any one on-market including the Benz, Hummer and BMW. This SUV is very comfortable with plenty of leg room from the front seat to the 3rd-row seat. The fuel economy is very good compared to other SVU. The diamond dynamic body stucture is awesome. I really enjoy the BOSE and also the 305 Horsepower that no other SUV an touch so far.
My husband just added 22/inch chrome wheels and a grille which really destingush its look totally. JUST LIKE CANDY!!!!!...read morehide

- extremely comfortable ride, feels "tight", powerful in performance and look.
- Does consume more gas than smaller engine.
It is huge in size but does not feel too big when driving it, even for a woman. It is comfort, and power all together. It has a classy design. I come from Belgium where the most popular car probably is the mercedes benz. I'd without doubt would rank the armada in the same class when it comes to looks, performance and comfort....read morehide
