Dodge Nitro 2.8 CRD SXT 5d Auto (2008/58) - Owner Review

There is a lot of space inside the car once you squeeze into it. The sound system is very good but the factory fit radio is not compatiable with any extra equipment such as hands free kits.

Driving it

2 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The handling is ver poor. The hard suspension feels every bump in the road and creates a lot of roll. The car understeers on bends and the traction control has to kick in very frequently.

What's it like to park?
Easy to park due to the light steering and rear parking sensors. The sensors do allow a lot of space behind you when the alarm kicks in so take some getting used to.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
The front bumper and front wing became detatched. The belly plate under the engine fell off. Alloy wheels corroded and have been replaced under warranty after just 10000 miles.

What's most practical about your car?
There is a lot of space inside the car once you squeeze into it. The sound system is very good but the factory fit radio is not compatiable with any extra equipment such as hands free kits.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The pull out boot floor and the parking sensors.
