  • My wife has 20k miles on her RX330 and her rotors went bad, the dealership replaced them without question. The only problem she had was that they promised her a Lexus loaner and when she got to the dealership she got a Grand Am from Enterprise tha…
  • My wife just called me from NYC where she is on business with her RX 330, she said that when she puts on the brake at higher speeds the whole car shakes. She asked if I could make an appt. with Lexus ASAP. I just got off the phone with them and th…
  • My wifes 04 with about 40,000 miles had the same problem they needed to replace the"shock absorber" that holds the hood open. All done under warranty during routine maintenance.
  • My wifes 04 RX had this same problem I would bet your rotors are warped.
  • We are picking up our new RX 330 this afternoon at 2:00PM, we are getting a Savannah with Tan Leather, the MSRP was 41,468. We are trading in our 97 Maxima with 120,000 miles, KBB around $3K, we are paying 34.5K with our trade, I think we are getti…

  • I have the Thule Evolution 1600 it works fine, it maybe a liitle long but all in all no problems.
  • We just received a letter from our dealer Lexus of Northboro MASS, they are offering a buy back program where they would purchase your vehicle back for 100% "market value" for exchange on a new Lexus vehicle. Has anybody else received a similar let…
  • Dogmike, We purchased a Thule Evolution 1600 (16 cubic feet)they have bigger and smaller we bought this one because it opens on both sides and is very easy to switch from car-to-car, it also is the right length for our skis. The unit was a bit pric…
  • I to have recently purchased a car top carrier for our RX330 I did it for two reasons:1. we already have a Town and Country van so we did not want another big vehicle 2. we wanted a car with AWD, The car top carrier gives us a great deal of flexabi…
  • My new RX330 is replacing a 97 Maxima that I thought handled very well, but this car handles better and I do not have the Perf. Package, I am very happy with the handling but I ahve never owned a BMW or similar type of vehicle. At the thousang mile…

  • Yes my sunroof does the same thing when it is open I close it a tiny bit and it does get a little better. I am living with the problem because I do not use my sunroof that often.
  • Yes that is based on my 3 year anniversary. I am starting to feel the "judder:now but I will tolerate it for a little while until hopefully the permenant fix is available.
  • I just called 800-nissan1 to see if the mileage mattered on the brake judder TSB. I was told that the brake warranty for my truck was extended until 12/29/06 regardless of the miles. I think this is very good news so basically I have another 1 1/…
  • My brakes are only noticeable on the highway at high speeds and then hitting the brakes. I realize my warrenty is up soon if I continue to have issues I will probaly trade the vehicle in for either a Land Cruiser or Seguoia. My Continentals seem t…
  • I finally am starting to have the brake issues so many of you have had. I have 32,000 miles on my truck and the rotors are warped- is this covered under some type of TSB or even my warranty? Thanks for your help.
  • I let my truck run down on gas until the yellow light came on. I then went to a gas station and was only able to put 10 gallons in it, it was a little less than half full. I spoke to the dealer and he has never heard of such a thing The gas nozzl…

  • I guess maybe I am having an issue with my gas gauge, I believe others have also had issues with their gas gauges. Is there a TSB for the gas gauge?
    in Nissan Armada Comment by btill1 May 2005
  • Has anybody else had this problem when I go to put gas in my Armada it does not let me fill it up all the way. The Armada has a 28 gallon gas tank and if I am close to empty it still will only take about 20 gallons and then the gas nozzle shuts off…

  • The same problem on mine it took me a little while to figure out where the tear came from, as stated a very poor design. Maybe if it was good quality leather it would not have ripped.
  • Does any body know if you can hook up an IPOD through the auxiliary jack and how it sounds? Thanks, Brian
  • I too like Tiggerguy have had very minor problems with my Armada, I have 20k miles on mine now, I picked it up last XMAS eve so I am coming up on one year. I did have some driver window problems which took 3 visits to the dealership to rectify, but…
  • Yes my problem was finally resolved after 3 visits to the service department, at least so far I have not had the same problem. I am fairly confident that the problem has been corrected. To be honest I am not sure what they did to repair the window…
  • I already had a Thule Evolution 1800 before I purchased my Armada, needless to say it did not fit. What I did was purchase another roof cross arm $80 for the rear rack so i had two cross bars on the back, then I drilled holes into the bottom of the…
  • I agree with what you have said I to love my Armada, but I have had the drivers side window come out of its track 3 times, making it inoperable. This has been highly frustrating, I am nervous that every time I put the window down I may not be able …
  • I just dropped off my Armada for the third time in the last 2 months for the same issue the drivers side window keeps coming off of its track and thus makes the window inoperable. The amazing thing was that a Titan was pulled in right behind me at t…
  • My Armada has 15,000 miles on it with no major issues except my drivers side window has failed again. This is the second time it will not go up all the way, I am lucky it is summer time The last time was only a couple of weeks ago and they replace…
  • I have 14,200 miles on my Armada my mileage is improving to where I am pleased with it. I drove up to the White Mountains in NH over the weekend and in mostly highway driving averaged 17.2 MPG. While in the White mountains we took a trip over the K…
  • I to test drove both the Armada and Sequia, and to my surprise my wife liked the Armada better for two reasons the 2nd row captains chairs and the fold flat 3rd row seat. If I were you I would wait to hear what Toyota is doing with the 05 Sequia be…
  • When it rains it pours, after finding out that I may have the resonance issue by way of a rattling in my sunroof. I was out last night and my drivers side window would not go back up all the way. The window would go down no problem and then go bac…
  • My rattle only happens when it is open and it seems that it is coming from right in the middle of the sunroof. I am going to wait on this I can live with it as I don't use the sunroof that often and it only happens when I go over a very rough secti…
  • This is a new one I believe, I brought my Armada in today for oil change and tire rotation also for a rattle in the sunroof. One technician looked at it and could not hear any rattles from the sunroof but did add foam to the rear center console. I…
  • My Armada has 12k miles on it, I will be bringing it in for oil change and tire rotation tomorrow, I have had no major problems except for sunroof rattle which will hopefully be fixed tomorrow. One other thing I noticed over the weekend is that my …
  • Upton Massachusetts
  • How often is everyone doing there oil changes, I have done them at 4k and 8k the next one at 12k when I will also rotate the tires. I have 11k miles and no problems with my Armada, I love everything about it except for the gas mileage (which I knew…
  • I had it installed at my first oil change I thought it would help the noise but it really did not. Like you I just end up closing the sun shade, I also had the moonroof adjusted at the dealer and that did help but it is still noisier than I would l…
  • I have Thule 1600 that I have put on the top of my Armada (with some modifications to the car-top carrier). I have not had any resonance issues with it on or off. I have an LE with sunroof package I also have a wind deflector for the sunroof, whi…
  • So regarding chazmans decision why don't you tell us what he should have done? What is your point!
  • What did you trade it in for?
  • Like berisimus I have my fingers crossed that I will not have any resonance problems or other major issues. The only issue I can say is that my moonroof was delivered out of alignment, corrected on the first service. I have 5,500 miles on my LE wit…
