You'll Like The 2010 Dodge Nitro If...

While the 2010 Dodge Nitro derives much of its appeal from its bold exterior styling, it still offers all the versatility of a typical compact/mid-size SUV. Generous rear-seat legroom and a handy slide-out cargo floor help sweeten the deal.

Super roomy, rugged vehicle.

I love my car. It runs great even at 150, 000+ miles, I can take it as far as I want without any worry about it breaking down. There’s a ton of room to fit whatever I may need in there (I recently got a love seat that I was afraid wouldn't fit, but it fit great)! The only issues I have is the lack of four-wheel drive which is almost a must where I live, and there has been an issue with the heating system that is very expensive to fix.

- Shelly S

Discontinued, the truck is great, reliable and has lasted 8 years.

Nitro is discontinued. I love my nitro, it has thus far been a very reliable automobile type, no bells and whistles, it is sturdy, and cool to look at. It is a truck. What else can I say, I love my truck, cannot get another one, since they discontinued it. My nitric is stone white and it was the heat edition. Seats 5 comfortably, no bells, just plain, I was not looking for bells, just a reliable safe automobile.

2010 Dodge nitro. Worth a second look.

Reliability is top notch. After 8 years (purchased new) it has needed nothing aside from regular maintenance (oil changes, new tires, tune ups etc.) it still drives like it was fresh off the lot and the gas mileage has never begun to slip. Overall I would recommend this vehicle as it has outstanding reliability, styling, and a great road feel that really makes you feel in control.
