Should I Buy a Nissan Armada?
If you are on a tight budget but need a good 3-row SUV, this model would be a reasonable choice. It offers a high-end interior packed with standard features and supremely comfortable two rows of seating.
But if well-rounded performance, spacious third row, and ample cargo area are your priorities, you’d better consider another vehicle, for example, the Ford Expedition, Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban, or the GMC Yukon. Also, the Armada’s fuel economy is poor, and handling is rather ponderous.
