I am 5 ft 2, the driving part of this SUV isn't the problem, its the outside mirrors. Left turn or right turn it doesn't matter I lose view. I have been trying for a month to get Chrysler and the car lot to help me remedy this, I can't get help, I do have case numbers with both, they say there are no replacement mirrors and they can't put a power seat in, so now I must drive a car I'm scared to drive, this is truly a problem that should be in a recall! So nothing bad has to happen and then they put a recall out. Please don't contact me, I've already talked to everyone
I've had SUVs for years and this is my favorite. I researched and drove a lot of SUVs before purchasing and overall, the Nitro just fits what I like perfectly. It looks great inside and out, it's unique, functional, it's comfortable, and fun to be in and drive. Mine is fully loaded, which makes it even better.
great towing capacity, easy to fold down seats, reversible cargo tray, very nice stereo, 20' wheels, the back- up 'park assist', lots of storage, clean modern styling, easy to clean interior surfaces, very comfortable seating
This Dodge Nitro is definitely one of the best vehicles I have ever purchased I read a lot of information on them and a lot of it said it was a bad SUV to purchased just based on the bad fuel mileage, I wanted to yell at these people who wrote those, "its a freaking SUV of course the gas mileage is crappy your looking at an SUV for more room, so more room means heavy means it takes more gas to move the thing really!" for that matter from my research the gas mileage on this SUV is with in 1 to 2 of every other SUV so why do people complain it's very comfortable it works well when you have a baby who spills her drinks all the time and its easy to get both her and me in and out of. Its a great SUV.
The fabric helps with a messy baby, the size, and the towing.
I think one thing would be, nope I pretty much love my nitro
I have had this vehicle for almost six months and I have had zero problems out of this vehicle. Lot of cargo room when you fold down the rear seats,plenty of leg room in the rear and in front. The 4.0l engine has plenty of power for me.I love this vehicle. Buy the Shock model with the 4.0l you will be happy.
Satellite radio leather seats that are very comfortable, 20" wheels and the ride with the suspension that comes with the shock model.
Little better Fuel Economy. But on average, I am satisfied.
2010 Dodge Nitro Detonator 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
First it's great looking. I have the Detonator Yellow with some chrome trim and the 20" wheels go real nice with it. I think it handles very well. I come from a tuner car that stuck to the road like glue and was impressed at how the Nitro handled some of my everyday driving maneuvers. There is lots of interior room and all the seats fold perfectly flat. The Nitro's premium sound system has a great sub woofer. I have the 4.0 5-speed shiftable transmission and when I need to pass someone I step on the gas and mission accomplished. I think this Nitro fits a certain style and others who say they don't like it probably shouldn't have bought it to begin with! I give it 2 thumbs up!!
I like the entire vehicle. I wish they had the Shock the leather seats, this was the ONLY Nitro on the lot. They sell as quick as they get them in.
If your complaining about gas mileage buy a Smart Car not a suv. You can't buy a SUV then turn around and complain about poor mpg.
