I was very happy with my new purchase, I have my new car for about about month an 2 weeksnow! the car drive great and the nephews love it. Everything was good until one day I got up and the car would not start. Long story short I took it to pep boys and they said the batteries are dead. i was shcok with having a pre-certify car everything would check out good. I do plan on calling Carmax and see if they will reimbruse me. thanks
Our 2008 Armada is a true beauty and a dream come true for my family. Road Trip Time!!!!! The color Pewter is very different with its pleasant mocha reflection. It rides like sure luxury and fits our family of 7 very comfortably.
I've been driving Ford trucks since 97. Regular, extra, and crew cabs. 4.2 V6, 4.6 V8, 5.4V8 engines. From stock to mild after market add on products. In my opinion they are very good trucks. For multiple reasons I needed to get out off my truck and into an SUV. I tested the Yukon, Tahoe, Expedition, Aspen, and the FX 35. After I drove the Armada I knew this was the SUV for me. Because of the body design I wasn't to convinced that I would even like the Armada. From the side it looks a little weird at the door pillars. But once you get in there is plenty of room in the first and second row for 6 foot plus passengers, one of the reasons why I chose the Armada over the others. The main reason is the engine and its rate of exceleration, OMG! To me this SUV is more sport than utility although it does that well too. I've had both second and third rows down to haul gear, I've had all three rows filled with passengers, and a combination of the above, and no matter what the Armada takes off like a rocket. You will never have a problem jumping in to traffic with this SUV. I've driven it up to 100 mph and the suspension gives a smooth and stable ride. Want to know about MPG, I live about 8 miles south of Downtown L.A. CA. and I made it to the Hotel Rio in Las Vegas, NV. with just under half a tank left doing 70-90 mph. I never did that in any of my trucks, not even the V6. I'm not going to lie to you, I miss my Ford truck, but the more I drive my "08" Armada, I feel I made the right choice to make a change.
