2011 Dodge Nitro Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Nitro
My 2011 Dodge nitro gets great mileage.
I have had my vehicle for six years now and only had major trouble out of it once. So in all it is an awesome vehicle. The downside is it does not have to many features and its not roomy. It is just a regular old vehicle. The problem I had was when my fuel pump when out. They claimed my warranty would pay for it but it didn't. Also I had to replace my door and window on driver's side. Boy was that difficult. It took my husband almost 4 months and he still didn't get finished. I pretty much like my nitro but the longer I have it the more I wished I had got something else.
It is a SUV but drives like a truck.
Drives great, very reliable haven't had any problems with the vehicle yet. I think the windows are smaller than the average car so I don't really like that, it makes it harder to see out of especially when backing up. Very roomy inside especially the cargo area. It is great for traveling, holds all our luggage. Plenty of legroom and also holds 3 car seats with no problem. Gets decent gas mileage.
This vehicle was my father's, I think of him every time I get behind the wheel.
My vehicle has been fun and reliable. It has a sporty look with the red stripes and I feel safe and comfortable in it. I have had to replace the tires and the battery, but, other than that, I keep the oil changed every 2, 000 miles and it runs like a top. It was my father's vehicle and he has since passed. So, I value this SUV very much. I would encourage anyone to own a Dodge.
Dodge nitro is a solid ride.
Very solid vehicle, have had no major issues, there is a lack of foot room in the front seats and the seats are not the most comfortable either. Definitely drives more like a truck than other SUVs I have driven, but I have enjoyed driving this vehicle. I do not have any extra “bells and whistles” but I still am happy with the choice I made when purchasing it.
I really love my Dodge nitro.
Our nitro is very handy. It's not too big for when driving in the city and not to small for going on long trips, very comfortable. I thought it would be a bit top heavy but it corners nicely at a fast speed. It also has plenty of power when needed to pass cars! And it gets great gas mileage. My first trip I really ran it good just to see and got 18-20 mpg.
Good compact value sport utility vehicle.
I enjoy the sporty look of my vehicle. Comfortably fits 3 passengers and great for grocery shopping to store items all the way in the back. Downfall is having to almost stop while going over train tracks or speed bumps because of vehicle shaking and bumpiness! After few years buttons on door that control windows keep. Snapping off.
It is a truck, so it is really hard on gas.
It is too big for my liking. It is always a tire problem, and is also really hard on gas especially in the summer time and when it is really cold outside. But overall it is comfortable for the other passengers. There is a lot of trunk space and a lot of nice compartments in the car as well. Also the brakes are horrible as well.
Most reliable vehicle I have ever owned.
My 2011 Dodge nitro has been a very reliable vehicle. I love the way it looks. I love the way it rides. It is been one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. I keep up with the maintenance of it regularly like oil changes and filters, etc.. Last year was first time putting new tires on it. It is been an awesome vehicle to own!
Body style looks good and is nice SUV.
The nitro has some issues the plastic fenders the accelerator issues and the heater and ac does not properly work. The nitro should have made all models four wheel drive. It also can flip over very easy the Dodge copied the Jeep and only made nitro certain years. It could've been better built since it is Dodge.
2011 Dodge nitro pros and cons.
The car drives very well. Only problem we have had with it was the tailgate not registering that it was closed, but was an easy fix. Handles very nice, but seems a little touchy for my taste. It has cruise control but when I am driving on the highway it does not want to speed up as fast as I would like it to.
