NEVER AGAIN! Lets start out by saying I am not happy with Dodge for not standing behind their product and promises. 2008 Dodge Nitro with under 50,000 miles now need a NEW ENGINE!! I was pleased with Dodge for acknowledging there was a problem with the vehicle and offered me a warranty to have the problem resolved. I am still having the same exact problem, only a few months later. Had to have it towed and now Dodge says the "higher up" have decided not to assist. Thank You Dodge. NEVER AGAIN!!

I've had my Nitro for just over one year and driven it 39k miles. I haven't had any problem with it and I get over 23 miles per gallon highway. On weekends it hauls my boat to the lake and back (50 miles)and never complains. I find the ride comfortable and it fills all my needs. My Nitro works for a living and isn't pampered by any means. Up to this *************** me well. It also helps that it looks fine.
LOVE my NITRO

It is the greatest SUV i have driven,next to my 1982 Jeep CJ-7. It beats anything japan has.
Best car so far

We love the Nitro. We were just about to buy a Subaru and luckily tried the Nitro and changed our minds.We had a Durango and only had minor problems so we went with Dodge again. This car drives itself! My only negative comment is it is a little difficult to get out of the back seats.
OH BOY IT MY NEW BABY

I JUST PURCHASED A 08 NITRO R/T WITH SUNBURST ORANGE.. BEST BUY I EVER MADE.. I HAVE OWNED PONTIAC FORD AND CHEVY TRUCKS AND A JEEP RENAGADE BUT THIS SUV IS THE MOST SMOOTH AND COMFORTABLE RIDE I HAVE EVER HAD . I PROMISE TO KEEP IT FOR 6 YEARS. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK DODGE ....
I Love This Car!
This is the best car I ever owned. It's unique styling turns heads and it has great visibility. The ride is smooth and the interior is very roomy. I have to say this is my all time favorite vehicle. I never took a second look at a Dodge until I saw one of these on the road. Dodge has a winner here! It's fun to drive and I feel very safe.
UNIQUE DESIGN AND WELL BUILT
THE DODGE NITRO, SURPRISIGLY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. I PURCHASE ONE OF THESE CARS FOR MY DAILY DUTIES FOR MY EMPLOYER. SINCE MY PURCHASE, MY EMPLOYER HAS PURCHASED 3 ADDITIONAL DODGE NITROS. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME, GO AND TEST DRIVE ONE. THE DODGE NITRO, GETS 2 THUMBS UP.
I love my Nitro
I really love my Nitro. Thr only complaints I have are the small windows....really difficult to use the ATM or drive through tellers without taking off my seatbelt and opening the door to use it. I wish it got better gas mileage these days but overall no real complaints.....I have a small convertible so I use that more in the summer with the outrageous gas prices. I am not going to bash my Nitro, I am happy with what I have and take really good care of it. It's a tough car and really looks like it kicks butt!
I purchased the Nitro in December 2007, honestly on a whim. I was having warranty work done on my 2006 Dodge Caravan and saw this and drove it home that day. It was quite a bit different going from a seven seater to a five seater, but it is a true five seater. I can fit both my kids w/boosters and another booster comfortably in the back seat. The only problem I personally have with this vehicle is getting into it. I'm fairly short (5 foot 3 inches) and I have to really duck to aviod hitting my head on the door frame. The drivers window is very small, which makes using drive up ATMs and drive thru windows awkward. When test driving the Nitro this is something that a buyer should really check out.
