I've had my Nitro for about two months now. I love everything about it except the gas mileage, I'm getting about 13mpg, not good. But I love sitting high and how roomy the inside is. I have the base model and it has plenty of power for passing cars on these houston highways and handles great while jumping curbs, although, I don't think I can offroad in this car. I bought it cuz i fell in love with the exterior design, and I'm not regretting it.
I've owned my Nitro RT, from new. I bought it on Oct. 31, 2007. It had a couple hickups with the HVAC system. Okay. virtually every part of it was replaced under warranty. Aside from that, I've put 112,000 miles on it and had only a few small things break. Window regulator. Window button. Key FOB. I was looking at other new SUV's like the Highlander and Murano, and have decided to keep my Nitro. It's worth putting in the $3,000 of 100,000 mile maintenance on. The biggest down side to the Nitro? Suuuuuuper chinsey interior. But I guess that developement money was spent on better mechanics. I'm super happy with my RT!
Love the way the cabin sits. The button on the emergency brake shakes, and there seems to be an air leak that makes the cabin noisey, especially at high speeds. Drives great in the snow. Gets lots of compliments.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
