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.

General Comments:

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.

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.

Put it in drive and push on the pedal!



General Comments:

It was between this and the Expedition. My brother in law has a Tahoe and I do not like it. The Cadillac and Toyota were seriously expensive.

Bought this, and no buyer's remorse so far. It's fast and well built. Hauls the family and all the groceries with no complaints. It's a great winter vehicle; pretty much unstoppable with studded snow tires.

It likes the gas station, but that's to be expected with this type of vehicle; it does not work on magic.

I'm never buying another Nissan, or letting my family buy one


The vehicle had lots of recalls.

The ceiling console came crashing down.

General Comments:

The vehicle is now 4 years old. One morning my wife was taking my kids to school, when the kids started screaming. The top center console from the ceiling came crashing down. I called the Nissan company and told them about it. I asked what they can do to fix the problem. They told me they can't do anything about it. So I asked to talk to the manager, and the rep told me that I can't talk to him. Since when did a company became so big that they don't back up its products, or won't let you talk to a manager?

2005 Nissan Armada SE gas


Overpriced, poor support. Last Nissan ever


Numerous electronic glitches had me at the dealership every couple of months.

Brake rotors gone at 20K miles, apparently a problem with all of these Armadas and Titans.

Wheel bearing is most recent, just out of warranty and no help from Nissan.

General Comments:

The car had me at dealership more often than any car I have owned in many many years. I take very good care of my vehicles, and shouldn't be at the dealership this often with any car, never mind one that cost $51K (MSRP) when I bought it. Some "glitches" were never fixed as dealership; just gave up on it.
