2007 Dodge Nitro SXT 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


I bought the Nitro for the great styling, high standard feature content, and room inside. After 3 days the satellite radio quit, took 4 weeks to replace the antenna, worked 5 days and quit again. Throttle response is horrible, push the gas and wait 1 second then it revs, makes it very hard to modulate with manual transmission which is unacceptable for a computer controlled engine. It reminds me of my old slant 6 Volare. Engine pulls willingly, but doesn't seem like 210 horsepower, gas mileage not quite up to rated but close. Engine rough and a bit noisy, not up to today's standard of refinement. Center console too wide, nowhere to put your feet but under the pedals.

Best Features

Interior room, head-turning looks, excellent traction control system, a great overall value.

Worst Features

Improve the throttle response as well as overall NVH from engine. It could use a little better dampening in the suspension for a more controlled ride. Improve the footwell room and put in a dead pedal.
