Love this car.
Love my Dodge Nitro. The only drawback is it doesn't have cruise control.
2007 Dodge Nitro
This car is a great drive and handles well. Has the R/T package as is a little hard to keep in the speed limit.
Depends on how you use it
For towing this vehicle does a reasonable job - certainly not a truck though. Trailer sway is a significant obstacle due to the short wheel base and a larger safety issue on highways in states like TX where people go 10 mph over the 70 mph speed limit. For city driving the 3.7 L engine is weak, get the 4.0 L if you buy. On on-ramps or other areas where you need power there simply isn't much there for rapid acceleration. But the brakes work great; for avoiding deer that's important. Reminder: this is a 4 speed transmission so you don't get smooth shifts. If you need to do an evasive maneuver to avoid the kid on a cell phone swerving - this vehicle is not for you. Very spooky experience feeling the vehicle almost lose control at 70 mph cause a kid brought his car quickly into my lane. Loose handling at highway speeds is the issue here. Cabin noise is significant and annoying for cellular conversations. If you have a larger dog (40+ lbs) be careful with the door paneling as scratches occur easily even if rover just sticks her head out the window a bit. A nice pro is that oil changes are not too difficult once you find a method to reach your hand up into the underside to change the filter. A huge plus is that this vehicle held up excellent in a 3 car accident. My wife got hit from the front and back side at 40 mph by a car + a SUV (that's a lot of force) since the other woman's SUV didn't brake well. Our SUV took over 6000 bucks in damage but my wife didn't suffer any injuries so the Nitro took the hit. That is what a SUV should do. The woman in the car wasn't so fortunate; heavier vehicles like SUV's have a advantage even with a painful gas bill. We'll take pain at the pump over bodily injury pain.
