Unexpected dead battery

One of the most common and annoying issues that people report about their Nissan Armadas is that they can unexpectedly have a dead battery. The unexpected battery drain can sometimes happen suddenly and unexpectedly while the vehicle is in motion causing the vehicle to have a loss of power while driving. This sudden loss of electric power can put the driver and others at risk of a collision, especially on busy freeways. The cause of this unexpected battery drain can sometimes be linked to improper battery cable connections, a faulty alternator, or simply Nissan using a poor-quality battery.

Backup camera and collision intervention malfunction

The Nissan Armada comes with backup collision intervention. BCI is a technology that uses sensors, radar, and cameras to detect dangers and obstacles in the vehicle’s path while it is reversing. Some Nissan Armada owners have reported that their BCI is defective and that it is not properly recognizing dangers while the vehicle is in reverse, causing collisions. Also, the same people reported that the screen that displays the backup camera will periodically blank out when they are in reverse.

Transmission issues

Issues with a vehicle’s transmission are often expensive and difficult to fix. With the Nissan Armada, the transmission issues should be addressed early on to prevent larger problems in the future. The documented transmission issues that many Armada owners experience include gearbox jams and faulty gear shifting. Also, some Armada owners have reported that their gearbox gets stuck in “park” and will not shift into gear. This could be because of a problem with the body valve, a manual shift sticking, or the condition of the transmission fluid.

Automatic emergency braking failure

The Nissan Armada comes with an automatic emergency braking system that is designed to brake hard if there is something in front of the vehicle that the driver is about to hit. The idea is to prevent rear-end collisions and to stop the vehicle from hitting a pedestrian or another obstacle that the driver may not notice to stop in time. Some owners of the Nissan Armada have noticed that the automatic emergency braking system can sometimes sense something that is not actually there and cause the vehicle to activate the emergency braking system erroneously. This sudden and abrupt braking can cause collisions.
