There are much better SUVs out there

2007 Dodge Nitro SLT 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
When I bought this car, I was actually looking for a Jeep Liberty. I saw this car and liked its looks. It was brand new and one of the first R/T models available in the city. I decided to give it a try. It has had three recalls already. Had to take it back to the dealership at least four times. Its not fun to drive, the speed-shift is awfull. Not enough space for your feet. The plastic used inside looks a little cheap. Constant problems with the central computer. The R/T model sure looks nice bus performs and handles terribly. Take a look at the latest consumer report for new cars 2009. It doesn't have one good thing to say about this car! Can't wait for my lease to be over!
Stiff and snappy ride. Very noisy. Lacks agility. Foot space is awkward at best. It has the worst blind spot I've experienced in a car. Definitely not reliable.
