2011 Dodge Nitro Heat 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I recently rented a 2011 Dodge Nitro in a 10 day trip from Las Vegas and up into the mountains of Utah. The good - the car did not overheat, it was reasonbaly comfortable and roomy. Gas mileage was about what is rated. The bad includes the following: Under the load of two adults, two kids and two suitcases, the engine stuggled each time the air conditioning was turned on. The temperature conditions were between 70 - 100 F. Each time the AC unit was turned on under any load you would get a studdering similar to an alternator going out. I found thid quite annoying and would try the larger engine model before buying this. Try before you buy!

Favorite Features

Fairly roomy. Good turning radius. Good visibility front, side and back.

Suggested Improvements

Better power delivery with AC on - engine studders when under load in hot temps. Head room a bit low on entry. I am only 5'10"" tall and I had to lean down each time. Adjustable lumbar support in all models.
