I stumbled upon this site just now and can't believe how many others have had the exact same issues with their Nitro as I have. Snapped door handles, wipers that just quit (at the worse times), window motors that went out (a yr into owning the vehicle), uncarriage leaks from the front and rear, TERRIBLE gas mileage, dashboards lights that would all go out and vehicle stall. I was in a bad situation when I got the truck and pressed for time so I wasn't able to research this thing like I should have. If I could go back, I NEVER would have purchased this truck and the moment I am able, I'm getting rid of it!
1st there is a recall on the wipers, 2nd plastic door handles wont last long if you pull on them to hard to much, yes there is a lot of plastic in it, 3rd i believe there is a recall on the stalling too. Whenever you start having issues with any car start doing research online to see if there are recalls and or how to fix the issues.
