The full-sized Armada SUV is roomy enough for eight passengers. It also offers a refined powertrain with plenty of power for quick acceleration and generous trailer towing capability. Still, there's no escaping the fact it is a large and heavy SUV. Furthermore, it hasn't had a redesign since its 2004 introduction and is showing its age, despite updates that have made its ride quality more civilized and quieted the cabin.

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.
