re: Transmission Problem?

It seems like the service dept. was able to work out the stalling issue I had with my Nitro. No more incidents since.

As for the brake issue, what are cold winters?

Mine does that too, it is pleasing to hear that I am not the only one with these issues. Has anyone heard about a brake recall on the Nitro? My cousin said that she heard about it on the radio last week and called me immediately.

25-30mph shuddering

Has anyone else noticed when going up hill right around 28mph the car shudders at all right around 1900 rpm's or it might be 2900. Its just a constant shudder only at those speeds and rpms. Just curious....

Anyone having problems going in reverse?

We've had our Nitro since New Years Eve and it has almost 1000 miles on it. I absolutely hate this vehicle, it bounces, misses, and has stalled on me twice. The first week we had our Nitro it drove so smooth and then all of the sudden it started missing, I thought it might have been bad gas, but it hasn't stopped. When I back up it's like it doesn't have enough power to go and that is when it died on me. Also when I back into our level gravel driveway I have to push the gas really hard and then it's like it jumps into gear and then of course it starts throwing gravels everywhere. I have an appointment with the dealership tomorrow, but I'm really worried that it won't help because most of the problems aren't consistant. I'm not good at describing vehicle problems and my husband rarely drives it so he hasn't experienced any and has no idea what I'm talking about. Has anyone else experienced any of the same problems or can atleast help me describe it to the service person?

Re: Anyone having problems going in reverse?

havent had that problem but any problem u have should be recorded in the vehicles computer. and when mechanic hooks his computer to yours it should bring up codes telling him what has happened. dont worry they'll fix it.

re: Transmission Problem?

My Nitro 3.7 seems to have the surging issue as well and it has about 200 miles on it (I bought it four days ago). Glad to know there is a fix out there.
The SLT seems like a great value for the price, my only option was the full size spare, stickering for less than 25K.
