2013 Nissan Armada 5.6
Very spacious, capable and powerful family vehicle as long as you're not concerned about fuel cost
Upon delivery some harness wasn't plugged in and the A/C only came out on the floor vents; was taken care of right after being noticed... no problems since.
We had a 2012 Pathfinder just before this, and decided if we're going to drive a 4WD SUV & deal with terrible mileage, we might as well have the room of a full size.
The truck is extremely powerful & has a ton of torque. Only ever used it one time for towing; it was just a pop-up camper & the truck acted as if wasn't even there.
The room inside is great! The third row is actually usable, and with it folded down there's a ton of storage / cargo space. The second row has plenty of legroom, and the storage cubbies in all the doors fit plenty, which is useful for the kids on trips and in general.
The ride is pleasant enough, but you'll know you're in a truck and not a cross-over. Handling is acceptable for a vehicle of this size. Went from NY-FL for a family vacation... it was a very pleasant experience, even in the snowy conditions in NY... the truck was very sure-footed and I just used the 4WD sparingly.
Overall it's been a great vehicle and I have no regrets; very family friendly (except the smaller kids can't really reach the rear door handle from the outside due to the placement of the handle), but I love the look and performance otherwise.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Great value on those SUVs, especially the used ones. Great deals in southern California and its sister the Infiniti QX56. But for those with less money, a real sleeper big SUV has to be the early, fully loaded, mint condition 1985-1998 Chevy Suburban or its sister GMC model. Gas has put a damper on buying these great big SUVs. But for someone that needs a local hauler, they can't be beat.
