Armada perfect full size SUV for large family, great tow capacity.

Vehicle is very roomy for a family. Includes 3rd row seating. DVD player in rear for children, easy parent controls from front. Drives well comfortable ride. Always reliable we have had the care for 5 years and have never had any issues. I put tons of miles on a vehicle always travel and on the go. Excellent reliability.

- Kristen H

A great all around vehicle.

I love my Nissan armada. It seats 8, which is a must for a family whose kids are involved in sports. I love that it has 4 wheel drive so we can take it to the snow in the winter. It sits high so I have great visibility on the road. I feel safe with the construction and design of this vehicle.

- Mandi F

Nissan Armada is perfect for families

I really enjoy my Nissan Armada. We bought it certified used and have not had any problems with it at all. If you like the power of a truck, you will love this SUV. It's comfortable with its third row seating and has many other features that my whole family loves.
