The Armada is a competitive entry among the large SUVs we've tested. It's very roomy and relatively agile for its size. The third-row seat is useable by adults and cargo room is almost minivanlike. The strong powertrain makes it quick, but fuel economy is a paltry 13 mpg overall. Complaints centered on the stiff ride, limited visibility, and insubstantial interior trim. Side- and curtain-airbags are standard.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
