Buying a Dodge Nitro

Hello !

I'm going to buy a Nitro and i have been searching everywhere for any problems with the model. Im not looking for a singel problem like "once my brakes stoped working". What im looking for is a problem that maybe never ceace to exist.

Like for an example: Now im driving a Pegueot 407 SW which has big troubles with the ignition coil. I have changed differend ignition coils everytime and a while ago i changed them all at once, but still they continues to break.

Is there any problem like that with Dodge Nitro ?
Or maybe anything else that i should know before buying one ?

Welcome Olsson!

Get your Nitro and enjoy!

Like every new vehicle there were some issues with it back in its first year of 2007. Those problems were mainly addressed with recalls and TSBs, so if you purchase one that was Dealer serviced and covered by warranty there should be no issues if you do purchase a 2007 model. Models from 2008 through 2011 had few problems and again if they received Dealer servicing you should be just fine. If you can find a brand new 2011 Nitro you are set!

Good Luck and for myself I am very pleased with my R/T and the 4.0 engine and drivetrain and would recommend it.

Let us know what you purchase.......

I recently bought a 2011 dodge nitro SXT fully loaded with 20 inch wheels , my gig entertainment package and racing stripes, with chrome package. No problems at all so far I'm at 4000 kmh. If you are buying one I would recommend any year 2008 and beyond.
