Engine noise requires ear plugs
By Bob on


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


I own an SLT with the 4.0 engine. It emits tremendous engine noise (sounds like piston slap) under light to heavy loads. Per dealer and factory this is normal for this engine. It is totally not acceptable for comfortable driving. In June the factory rep. stated there would be a fix by way of a service bulletin but this has never occurred. All other facets of the vehicle have been very acceptable.

Best Features

Looks, power and economy (18-21).

Worst Features

Just cure the engine noise in the 4.0 engine.
