Review 1 of 3

Price Paid:  $33000.00 from Warnock Dodge

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 SXT

Strengths:
drives smooth
very roomy
radio system
the options
the my gig system ( nav, mp3, dvd, hard drive, etc)
easy to handle

Weaknesses:
gas guzzler

Summary:
I have owned my Dodge Nitro for almost 5 months. I love the choice of having all the options especially with my navigation and the outlet in the back seat. It drives unbelievably smoothly and it's a hot car. I would enjoy a bigger trunk but this size isn't bad. I'm only 17 years old so i don't need a large trunk. The gas isn't the best with this suv but what suv is amazing on gas. other then that i absoutly love my nitro.

Review 2 of 3

Price Paid:  $22000.00 from Westminster Dodge

Year / Model Reviewed:
2007 Dodge Nitro SLT

Strengths:
Part time 4wd is great! Roomy and comfortable! Great style, the Nitro is like no other!

Weaknesses:
Gas mileage is not great (17 mpg). Also, there is no area for storage in the back. It needs a net or a cubby hole somewhere to store fluids and things like that.

Summary:
I've only had my truck for a month but I absolutely love it! I drove the Nitro a year ago and was immediately sold on it, I finally broke down and bought it last month. It is such a smooth ride and is extremely comfortable! The truck is the perfect size, not too big, not too small and feels very roomy inside. Everyone stops me and asks me about it and says how different it looks from any other truck on the road. I read all kinds of negative reviews and still bought the Nitro anyway. I disagree with all the negative reviews! The engine has plenty of power and I have no problems accelerating! There were two recalls on the Nitro and they have been taken care of, recalls happen all the time, especially on new models! I hope to drive my Nitro for a long time, and having a Lifetime Powertrain is a huge incentive!
