I did get this car pre owned and have had it 6 months already had to replace two tires, one had issues with the tread the other blew out on me. The water pump already went out, I am having issues with the window sprayers and the rear passenger power window went out also.
I just got back from a trip up north and my experience was amplified by the Nitro. The ride was smooth, comfortable, not bad on gas, plenty of storage room and I mostly enjoyed the stares. The Nitro went up steep inclines without hesitation and maintained steady smooth shifting patterns. It was very comfortable I never once even thought of having to get out and stretch my legs. All of the electronic supportive options (extra 12v/120v plugs) entertained all passengers along with the easy to use front AUX plug option for MP3 compatability. My only concerns with the vehicle so far is: noticable surface rust (has been in salty winter condidtions for two years only) on the underbody mostly but most concerning right under the "bump" side stripping which everyone can see on the side of the vehicle. other concern: this engine 2.7 liter stays HOT for excessive amounts of time. We went in our hotel and came out 3 hours later (outside temp was a cool 68 degrees) and the engine at start up still read @ normal operating temperature (half way mark). Other concern: slight vibration in low torque situations like right before it wants to upshift (feel it right through the floor). Overall if the vehicle maintains it's current operations I would love to keep it around for 10 years if possible. But seeing as though it's showing signs of weakness to rust, in Wisconsin it wont last long... :( I really love this ride.
Love this car.

Love my Dodge Nitro. The only drawback is it doesn't have cruise control.
