Summary:

Faults:

Nothing.

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.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Previous carNissan Armada

Summary:

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

Faults:

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?

Previous carLincoln Navigator

Summary:

Overpriced, poor support. Last Nissan ever

Faults:

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.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
