2008 Nissan Armada | new car review

If there is anything that Nissan’s full-size SUV, the Armada, would call home; we would like to say it’s nothing but the vast desolateness of the Empty Quarter – only in such a vast expanse will this SUV look in scale. Everywhere else, it looks huge and intimidating. This is…
