A Great Ride- Dodge Nitro

2011 Dodge Nitro SE

My Dodge Nitro runs great! I have had the vehicle for almost 2 years now and have not had any major issues or problems with the vehicle. My Nitro is very reliable to take me anywhere, from work to out of town trips. I have driven the vehicle over 1000 miles on one road trip, and I was so pleased at how reliable it has been. I love the added amenities of the sun roof, large hatchback trunk, and fold-down back seats. The car is easy and smooth to drive, with comfortable seats and great AC/Heat. I would recommend this car to anyone in search of a comfortable, reliable vehicle.

My 2011 Dodge nitro gets great mileage.

2011 Dodge Nitro

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.

- Mickey D

Very reliable and good performing car.

2011 Dodge Nitro SE

I purchased this vehicle from a family friend who had used it as a company car 3 years ago. Since then, the car has not given me any issues. It was my first vehicle and I have had it for a little over two years, although the gas seems to drain fairly quickly, I do love the vehicle. It is a big car seating five, and is very comfortable and cozy. Not once have I been presented with a major issue, and have driven it nearly 220,000 miles.

Great vehicle for outdoors user

2011 Dodge Nitro Heat

The driving is really smooth but the one thing that I would really like is cruise control the vehicle does not have cruise control. I like that the back seats do come down and if has more room into the back it is perfect for when I am going out fishing with my family or just have my dog with me the one experience that I have you is bad wiring my back tailgate light is not working and I cannot seem to find anybody to figure it out.

Nitro's secret shock. Trim is not labeled, just stripes on the hood.

2011 Dodge Nitro Shock

Purchased it new and have owned it 8 years now! Until recently I never had an issue and now it is only the a/c not getting as cold. The mileage is not the best with 18 why & 15 in town & the low profile tires get less than ideal traction but the turn radius is about as sharp as it gets!! It has a 3.7 v6 with plenty of get up and go, heated leather seats, sunroof, navigation panel & more! Love my shock!

- Sandra H

It is a SUV but drives like a truck.

2011 Dodge Nitro

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.

- Rachel S

This vehicle was my father's, I think of him every time I get behind the wheel.

2011 Dodge Nitro

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.

- Laura T

Dodge nitro is a solid ride.

2011 Dodge Nitro

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.

- Casey H

I really love my Dodge nitro.

2011 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.

- Julie C

Good compact value sport utility vehicle.

2011 Dodge Nitro

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.

- Dawn S

White 2011 dodge nitro. Very nice!! Good for camping and fishing.

2011 Dodge Nitro

I haven't had too many problems just a little wire problem like when I turn my blinker on my inside light comes on.But it exhilarates pretty good not bad on gas. Never had problems starting or overheating. Switches gears smoothly.Car came with 3 free months of satellite. Comfortable not too big nor too small. No special features.

- Jessica N

It is a truck, so it is really hard on gas.

2011 Dodge Nitro

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.

- Kelsey J

Most reliable vehicle I have ever owned.

2011 Dodge Nitro

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!

- Lori R

Good in winter climates on handling.

2011 Dodge Nitro SE

Reliability has been a little above average, a few minor maintenance items required. Dislike the tail and brake lights burn out regularly. Sometimes a rough ride due to size of tires. Things are like are the size and spacious seating, good vehicle in the snow over the winter months. Overall happy with the vehicle.

- Delisa S

Body style looks good and is nice SUV.

2011 Dodge Nitro

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.

- Annette M

2011 Dodge nitro pros and cons.

2011 Dodge Nitro

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.

- Ashley C

Great back seat storage options!

2011 Dodge Nitro Heat

I have had a lot of repairs on my nitro. Have had to replace brakes, spark plugs three times and shocks. The gear shift has also been replaced due to factory recall. I have gotten great use out of it. I love the back row storage and space this vehicle holds. The stereo system is very nice and sounds great.

- Hannah M

Very spacious. One of my favorite things about it.

2011 Dodge Nitro

I have had it for 3 and a half years and haven't had anything major go wrong. It is very reliable and comfortable. There are very little blind spots and very spacious. The suspension is a little rough compared to most but it is a minor detail I have been able to overlook. Does fairly well on gas mileage.

- Brittany A

4 wheel drive. Satellite radio. Spacious.

2011 Dodge Nitro

I love this car. It is awesome in the snow with the 4 wheel drive. Plenty of space for trips and even more with the roof rack. The back seat is also spacious so no one is cramped. I have had trouble with the radio working. No one can figure out why. There's not even any static it is just no noise.

- Rebecca O

Perfect blend of Jeep and Hummer

2011 Dodge Nitro SE

I really love my vehicle. Performance is great, very reliable. Unfortunately Comfort is not the greatest, rides pretty hard and seating is hard especially in the back. The bottom of the back seat is not very wide for being a SUV. Tether points come in very handy for hauling and securing cargo.

- Kris L

Hood does not latch, seals on inside around the door does not stick well.

2011 Dodge Nitro SE

The hood latch gets stuck and you have to make sure after you pop the hood you unstick the lever, if you do not the hood will not shut (this has happened more than one getting the oil changed at the dealership). The heater has gone out twice, the trim on the inside of the door does not stick.

- Rachel W

My car is like a sporty small SUV which is perfect for me.

2011 Dodge Nitro

I love my cars features like the heated seats, sunroof and touchscreen radio but the gas mileage kills my wallet. A 30 minute drives takes about half a quarter a tank and it takes almost $50 to fill it up, but other than that I absolutely love it. Do not buy if you are a broke college kid.

- Cory T

I would like a sunroof, heated seat, heated steering wheel and better radio.

2011 Dodge Nitro Heat

I want a more newer SUV with more features like a sunroof, heated seats, heated steering wheel, better radio. I do like my SUV I wish I had a newer one. That's it. I hope that I will be able to get a better SUV. I hope I will be able to earn enough money from taking this survey to get one.

- L L

Overall I like the look and durability, but hate the rough off road ride.

2011 Dodge Nitro Shock

I love the look of the truck. The durability of it. The comfort of it. However it has a very rough ride. You feel every little bump. Also there are no vents for the back seat, which is inconvenient, for air conditioning and heat. The dashboard could've been a little more exciting as well.

- Lori S

2011 Dodge nitro four wheel drive.

2011 Dodge Nitro

I love my Dodge nitro! It has always been a very reliable vehicle. Over the past seven years we haven't had to do much to it other than annual oil change, wipers etc.. I put new tires on this past year. Overall it is been a great purchase. The gas per mileage on other had could be better.

- Lori R

Cool 2011 Dodge nitro review..

2011 Dodge Nitro

My 2011 Dodge nitro is the best SUV that I have ever purchased, its great on gas, it has a cute shape, kind of like a range rover. It has power locks, alarm, nice stereo system, its the manufacturers stock, bit the speakers sound great, Sirius radio equipped, moon roof, and so much more.

- Nicole W

My vehicle is great quality, built To last. It is the perfect family vehicle.

2011 Dodge Nitro

I like that my vehicle is big enough for all the family things we do with our kids and its great for vacationing. I also like that my vehicle is roomy and very comfortable for travel. For a suv the gas mileage is great. The handling and power behind the engine also make it fun to drive.

- Mech S

The dodge nitro 2011 is a very nice car and it looks good.

2011 Dodge Nitro SE

I love the way it drives. It is good on gas. It is very spacious inside. It should have another outlet to charge your cell phone. There is only one in the whole car. The back seat does not let down. I wish the side view mirrors were automatic. It is a very good car and it looks great.

- Fawn R

Is just a very spacious car and I love it.

2011 Dodge Nitro

My vehicle is very spacious, love the leather seats, it is a big enough car for my kids, I just do not like it because how when we start the car it sounds like it does not want to start, like it is the alternator or something like that, that is the only problem I have with the car.

- Danielle K


2011 Dodge Nitro Shock

My SUV is reliable and fuel efficient, it has a very comfortable interior with all the necessary options for a comfortable drive. It handles well on the road and has plenty of pick up with it's 4.0 litre engine and it's 6 cylinders. Just an all round good driving experience.

- Wayne L

The amazing 2011 Dodge Nitro Heat

2011 Dodge Nitro Heat

The dodge nitro heat is a very nice SUV! Whether you use it for a growing family or hitting the beach, I feel it can do it all! Honestly I feel it's the next best thing to having a Jeep Wrangler! I use it for everything! Great on gas mileage, not too many mechanical issues!

- Andrea V

Sharp looking dodge nitro

2011 Dodge Nitro Heat

It rides very rough but it gets the job done. Looks sharp especially when it is clean. I like the option I have because it is all fiberglass with no plastic on the fender wells like some of the models. As long as you keep up with maintenance this vehicle is very reliable

- Buck D

Its alloy tires. It has z black metallic paint on is which is very nice.

2011 Dodge Nitro

The only problem is I wish they made them in a 7 seater. It's very comfortable sits up high and I love the alloy tires. it is very spacious inside and has a lot of trunk space. And the back seat also folds down if needed. It is somewhat a gas hog but I still love it.

- Jamie C

Nitro the best way to shop

2011 Dodge Nitro SE

My knee hits the dashboard a lot. But other than that, it drives good and I had it for 3 years and I have had no problem with the car I keep the oil changed all the time. New tires and I run to los angel all the time. Air conditioning is good comfortable seats

- Maria U

Great family vehicle with plenty of room for all my Children's belongings.

2011 Dodge Nitro Heat

It has been very reliable. It is comfortable and has enough room to fit my two children and their necessary equipment. Great family vehicle. Large trunk. CD player, aux port, power windows and locks. The 4 wheel drive is great for weather changes and off roading.

- Danielle B

Nitro love- sporty and practical, every family's dream.

2011 Dodge Nitro Heat

Drives and maneuvers well for it being a mid-size SUV. It fits well with our families needs, can comfortably fit 5 people or move a piece of furniture. Perfect size, easy to drive and park. Fun to drive! Love the sporty exterior and that the gas mileage is great.

- Dawn D

Good handling feels safe to drive.

2011 Dodge Nitro

This is a very good and comfortable vehicle. Good mileage, has sunroof and is roomy. Hold road very well, and great for long distance driving. Only problem is the tires are pretty pricey to replace, but once that is done, they last a good amount of time.

- Jill H

Never buy this car. It will be a waste of your money and stay away from dodge trucks.

2011 Dodge Nitro

I have had nothing but problems with this car since I have gotten it. Two tire pressure sensors have gone out, my engine light would not go off and now the abs and trac control light wont go off. I hate this truck and so glad they don't make it anymore.

- jeremie a

Enjoy driving my dodge nitro heat.

2011 Dodge Nitro Heat

For a family of 4 it is a great size and trunk space. It is roomy and easy to drive. Few years back there was a recall for airbags but still enjoy safety features. One thing, though and it's probably with larger vehicles is the amount of gas it spends.

- Berta S

Dodge nitro 2011 sxt review.

2011 Dodge Nitro

Great for a first time vehicle! Just enough room for a mom with one child! I wish the back seat was a tad larger. I love the style and different packages of this vehicle. I really wish they still made these, because I would definitely buy another one.

- Lexie R

Carries all our stuff if you're careful and pack well.

2011 Dodge Nitro

Loved The Dodge Nitro since seeing the 1st ad on TV. Took us 4 years to get one, the last year made. But--there's no legroom in front, it ROLLS on hills even though an automatic, and you have to keep pressure on gas pedal just to keep current speed.

- Sally L

It is a great vehicle year round.

2011 Dodge Nitro

I love my Nitro - fully loaded, leather interior, easy to handle no issues. I did have to replace the air conditioner and it kept producing hot air however the repair shop got it fixed after months of taking it back time and time again.

- Melissa M

It's getting to be higher mileage and has more than just regular maintenance done

2011 Dodge Nitro

I really enjoy the sportiness of the vehicle. I love the color of my vehicle however where I purchased my vehicle unfortunately patched it together just to get the sale so I'm stuck having to mix minor things that add up.

- Elizabeth M

It is a good value for the cost.

2011 Dodge Nitro

What I like about my vehicle, it is sporty, roomy, great power, and reliable... What I do not like, it is rides like a jeep, gas mileage isn't too good, and the air system doesn't rotate too good..

- Jennifer W

Roomy and handles well but poor gas mileage.

2011 Dodge Nitro

I like my vehicle because it drives well and has a lot of room. It is also easy maintenance and dependable. But the biggest flaw I do not like is the gas mileage is horrible for my vehicle.

- Michael H

Minor replacements of battery and blinker are difficult due to the tight space in the engine.

2011 Dodge Nitro

My clock always loses time. I've had to replace the battery two times. It hasn't needed any major repairs yet. It drives comfortably. It is a bit tight in the back with my three children.

- Holly F

Great vehicle with minimal problems.

2011 Dodge Nitro

Overall I enjoy this vehicle. I would say my biggest problem with it is the amount of blind spots there are and it is kind of a rough drive. But it is comfortable and very spacious.

- Kira P

It is no longer made by Dodge, probably for a reason

2011 Dodge Nitro

Car has been reliable for the last 8 years. Does not have cruise control because that does not come standard. The axle seals tend to keep leaking which is my huge complaint.

- Melissa S

reliable and not very expensive

- E u

It is okay nice looking but not fancy inside.

2011 Dodge Nitro

It is not big enough for my family. It is a nice looking SUV. The flat flaws are there is no vents for the ac in the back for the kids so it gets hot back there some times.

- Stephanie Z

Only has little side vents in the rear for the heat.

2011 Dodge Nitro

What I most dislike about my vehicle is the lack of electrical plugs in the back of this particular nitro. Only one is located up front. And the stiffness of the ride.

- Charles E

Twenty inch rims model kind of looks like a range rover.

2011 Dodge Nitro
