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.Nitro_93727 said:Yes, it seems sometimes it keeps jumping up a gear and back down, almost like a vacuum line is leaking.. And sometimes in a parking lot it shifts hard into 2nd only doing about 10 mph..
I test drove a Nitro this past weekend. The turn signal "weirdness" you describe is actually an engineered / planned thing. The idea is that you need only tap the signal stalk lightly once to get 3 pulses from the signal lights...like when you're going to change lanes. No having to hold the stalk part way on, and no "idiot" driving with the signal blinking while you have no intention to change lanes.NitroMama said:2) The dang turn signals stick! You can put the left blinker on, turn the corner and the lever goes back to the center spot but the blinker keeps blinking, so you try to turn the right one on, move the lever back to the center spot and the right one keeps blinking! Weirdest thing!
My Nitro SLT just died for the first time while making a sharp left turn into a parking lot, only 169 miles on it. =\ Which is the proper code to get this problem fixed?sdoormannn said:yes i have had mine now for 3 weeks,same problem, there is a fix out for this , just got mine fixed,if u call dealership and give them these #'s they will fix it under warranty= tsb#18-037-06,
