Nitro review of 2009 Dodge nitro I have had this car for 5 years. It is a nice car.

Brakes are shot, interior is rough and cracking plastic parts but dependable. I like that it is red and I also like that it is a nice big vehicle SUV-type. I also think that it is really nice because the outside has chrome but that is also deteriorating which I am sad about.

Spacious, comfortable, and reliable black Dodge nitro.

My Dodge nitro is spacious and the seats are very comfortable. The only problem I have had so far is that at almost 100, 000 miles the abs brake system and traction has stopped working and needs to be replaced. The tire pressure sensor also stopped working fairly early.

- Ashley S

That it is a great looking car but it has a lot of issues.

I love my car. I love the size and style of it. Unfortunately I'll probably have to get rid of it soon. It's been having a lot of issues lately. The newest issue is that the air conditioning isn't working and it will cost over $1000 to fix.
