2011 Dodge NitroLacey Charles - Baltimore, MD08/06/2017
I purchased this car back in march after my car was totaled. I found a great deal on a 2011 heat with very low mileage. I love this truck and haven't had a many problems! Would highly recommend to someone in the market for a nice SUV with a huge price tag!
Great deal and better buy
2011 Dodge NitroAdan Beas - Los Angeles, CA08/08/2016
The customer service was great and made sure all my questions and concerns were answered.
There isnt much that I can say negetivley about my car. It spacious, quite, family and animal friendly. Its just an all around great car. I have not had any problems during the time that I have owned it. So far it fits perfect for a person like my self that travels 30 min to work everyday. Its very reliable and very easy to control.
Dodge Nitro Overview
The Dodge Nitro is a stylish compact SUV that stands out against the competition with big wheels and an aggressive stance. The Nitro gives off a strong retro design vibe. While only produced for a few years, it remains one of the most distinctive vehicles you can buy.
Dodge Nitro History
The Dodge Nitro was produced from 2007 through 2011. Boxy and substantial, it is built upon a sturdy, truck-like platform. The Dodge Nitro was initially introduced with the SXT as the base trim, but that model was renamed the SE in 2009. In 2010, this was renamed again - as the Dodge Nitro Heat.
How It Drives
Because it is smaller than many other midsize SUVs, the Dodge Nitro was praised by expert reviewers for its competitive maneuverability. However, even after Dodge altered its suspension in 2009, the Nitro's ride quality still below average for its class. Fuel economy is pretty decent for its size, but it may be inefficient compared to other midsize SUVs. The Nitro excels at looking good on the road, but not a whole lot else.
Used Dodge Nitro Value
The Dodge Nitro looks bolder than most of the competition. The engine options, unfortunately, do not enable the Nitro to perform well against other compact SUVs. The interior doesn't fare well either; other SUVs have more comfortable seating options and a smoother ride. Unless its untraditional design is more important to you than day-to-day performance, you may find more value in purchasing a used Honda CR-V or a Toyota RAV4.
Design & Performance
The Dodge Nitro's small size enables it to maneuver on winding roads very well.
Rear-wheel drive is standard with all-wheel drive available as an option.
The Dodge Nitro's base trim level includes standard power accessories and a feature-rich cabin.
The Dodge Nitro SLT trim level builds upon the SXT with cruise control and an overhead display.
Powertrain & Engine
Dodge offers a 3.7L V6 engine as the standard powertrain option for the Nitro. Typically, this engine is paired with a four-speed automatic. If you are disappointed with the acceleration capabilities of this engine, then, try the 4.0L V6 engine instead. It's available as an upgrade and enables a smoother, more powerful drive. The 4.0L V6 engine is installed with a five-speed automatic transmission in all cases. Despite size and power differences, both of the Nitro's engine options produce similar fuel efficiencies.
Body Style & Interior Comfort
The Dodge Nitro has a retro-styled body design.
Its small SUV model is built with truck-like design cues.
All Nitro models seat up to five passengers comfortably.
The interior can be disappointing compared to other cars in its class.
