2007 Dodge Nitro SXT 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I love this vehicle! Plenty of head and leg room! My kids can stand up in the back without touching their heads to the ceiling! Lots of room! This vehicle handles really well around corners and into small parking spots. Cargo room, you can get lots of stuff back there. We bought a liner for in the back. If there would be any spills then it stays on the liner and not in the Nitro! The radio/satellite/CD have great sound and are centrally located and easy to reach. Comfortable seats. The exterior is very impressive! You get lots of looks at it and people asking what kind of vehicle is that??? LOVE IT!


Best Features

Lots of room! The exterior look!


Worst Features

Day lamps, better gas mileage.

2007 Dodge Nitro SXT 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Since purchase, I've had no major problems but a few concerns. The 1-2 shift is harsh when cold, a slight whistle sound from the AC system and the glaring lack of a rear AC vent for a vehicle of this size annoys me. Gas mileage hovers at 21MPG but only when driven like a baby carriage. Everything else is fine and I'm impressed considering the price I paid.


Best Features

Exterior looks no doubt draws many compliments. Wide 3-kid across seating in the back is terrific and the cargo capability is nice. Solid build structure gives confident feeling.


Worst Features

Smaller engine or lighter weight to improve gas mileage would be nice. Add rear seat AC vent for comfort and upgrade transmission to 5 speed.

Review

We have had the Dodge Nitro for almost a year. It is sharp looking and has a roomy interior. We have not had any problems with this vehicle and love to drive it. We have two young kids and they can stand up inside when getting into their seats. Lots of cargo space. It has lots of power for a V-6 engine. Great sound with the CD/Radio/Satellite. We tow with it and the tow/haul button is conveniently located. The only thing I would say that I thought would be better was the fuel economy. It gets the average gas mileage. As a family it is safe and drives well for an SUV. Hope this helps you out on making your decision to get one or not!


Best Features

The very roomy interior, the impressive looks on the outside! Everything is conveniently located for the driver.


Worst Features

Day lamps, Fix the black paneling that comes off easily. Cover or something that covers the lower radiation grill in the front. Anything can get in there!

2007 Dodge Nitro SLT 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought our Nitro as a program car with 20K on it. We have had several small SUVs previously, a Honda CR-V and most recently a Santa Fe, but this fits our purposes better. The fuel economy is around 20 in the city - because we drive reasonably. Have not really had it on the road. The economy improved when we had the transmission flashed (it did hesitate between 30-40 MPH). There is a TSB out on this issue. Yes, it rides a bit more truck-like than the other SUVs we have owned, but we don't seem to mind that because it is still comfortable and steady.


Best Features

Being able to select 4 wheel drive - not wait for the whim of the car's computer. Carrying capacity. We have horses and can put 300-400 # of bagged feed in the back and the car doesn't squat at all. It is a bold design but our other vehicle is a RAM 2500 - so we like the look.


Worst Features

Daytime running lights needed!!!! More storage generally, especially under rear floor would be nice. Of course, better fuel economy would be nice. Bumper guards. The design makes if difficult to know where your bumpers begin and thicker rubber guards, front and back would minimize scrapes.
