I've driven the 2008 Dodge Nitro for over a year! Has performed very well. No problems!
This baby was my Mother's Day gift for 2007! Needless to say it was and still is a looker. I was coming out of an Isuzu Ascender and wanted something sporty and cute.Handles well and is responsive but with the low profile tires you feel every bump. 4 wheel drive great for midwest winters.Fully loaded with heated front seats and sunroof for Mom and the VES so the kids can watch movies in the back. All this standard for my R/T in Inferno Red. HOT!
Its a car that can get you in one of those compact parking spots in the parking garages. Its ride is smooth turns beautifully. Headroom legroom for the tall ones in your family. Heat, ac blow wonderfully. I enjoy my car
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.
