2011 Armada has a rattling bumping sound coming from the back end

Asked by Jul 10, 2011 at 09:53 PM about the 2011 Nissan Armada Platinum

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just got this Nissan last week. I am going to take it in to the dealer this week and have it checked out but I was wondering if anyone else had this happen to them. It would help me to know what I am talking about when I talk to the "professionals". The rear end is making a bumping/rattling sound when I slow down and when I go over an uneven surface. You can actually feel the bumping through the car as well as hear it. It just started doing it yesterday and like I said I have only had it a week.  I traded in my 2004 Armada for this one and was loving how quiet it was. My 2004 Armada rattled and squeaked all over the place. I don't want to have that happen again. Thanks for your input.

Check spare tire and exhaust hardware. Also check jack and lug wrench, sometimes they aren't secure and can rattle if they are located in the rear side walls of the cargo area.
