Failure Date: 01/12/2013

As documented in the NHTSA complaints for multiple models and years. My Armada (that I happened to buy for my wife's birthday just 8 months ago), like thousands of other 04-06 Armadas, titans, and qx56 has the random abs incident. This is a serious safety concern that I can't believe has not been recalled. Nissan knows about it. Dealerships know about it. People that have had their complete abs systems replaced are having the problem just a few years down the road. The abs system activates under normal, dry road conditions. The pedal goes to the floor, the vehicle loses almost all braking power, you hear the abs grinding and feel it pulsating the brake pedal. The abs light comes on, some times the "vdc off" and "slip" lights come on. It's documented on vehicle related websites by hundreds of users. . Read more...

Failure Date: 06/02/2012

The brake failure occured while driving on a city street at 35mph, it acted like the abs system failed. This happened on a Saturday. I called the Nissan dealer we purchased it from the following Monday to get an appointment to have it checked out. The dealer got me in the next day and the tech said the brake master cylinder and sensor was defective and it needed to be replaced. The service manager for the dealer said the part was $700. 00 and labor was $400. 00-500. 00 but it would only be 80 percent fixed. The problem was a defective brake master cylinder and Nissan has been aware of this since 2004 but has done nothing for anyone who owns a Nissan vehicle with this problem. It was not covered under warranty. After I contacted Nissan consumer relations they stated a replacement or fix for this safety problem on my vehicle was declined due to expired warranty. T he warranty had expired by time not miles. The Nissan rep said it was unsafe if the brakes fail any time the vehicles driven. The Nissan rep said based solely on expired warranty any repair service would be at our expence.

While driving low speeds the abs system failed and numerous indicator lights lite up on the dash cluster panel. The brake pedal itself was vibrating and required more effort to stop the vehicle. During the issue, turning off the vehicle completely and restarting usually resolves the issue until the next time. This has occurred over 40-50 time. Contacting the dealership resulted in a $500 bill to flush the brake system and re-surface the brake rotors. The issue still persists.
