2008 Dodge Nitro SXT 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


You can actually see the fuel gauge move in this vehicle. I have owned vehicles in most all styles & from all different car companies over the past 40+ years. Up until I got this nitro with the 3.7 v-6, I have always loved Chrysler products. I was even a loyal Chrysler man back in the 1970's/ when "build quality" was just a word in the dictionary at Chrysler. Overall I am unhappy w/ this vehicle. I should have gotten the hemi, as it could not drink any more gas than this 3.7 does. This vehicle get the worse fuel economy of any of any vehicle that I have ever owned or driven. The 3.7 is also low on power, if you intend to make a pass, you better plan ahead & allow lots of room.

Best Features

Has a great sound system - looks good -

Worst Features

Footwells are small. Seats are hard & uncomfortable. You can see the cheapness in the components used to put this vehicle together. Is not the carpet supposed to fit? also there is no lockable compartment inside the vehicle.
