Had never heard of one. They replaced but it has broken 2 more times since then. They should take them out the market. The first was the doors not opening from the inside. I would guess 5 miles at max. That was very upsetting to me since he was about to work on my Dodge Nitro.
I couldn't sell it with a good conscience to an individual knowing what I know. It was knocked down to 9999 and had almost 29,000 miles on it. The service writer went through my Nitro, writing down all the issues and told me most of the issues are well known for Dodge and Dodge product are garbage. The engine has a whistling sound to it - no one can tell me why and there is no repair. On the test drive the Nitro seemed to bog out or misfire, it backfired 3 times, and had power fluctuations when using power windows and almost stalls in reverse. Doors would not lock when pushing button on the door. The finance person asked me if I wanted the Nitro for the window price.
There is also a noise coming from the front end that I've had checked and was told they can't find anything. I am so glad I did! My car was in their service for 13 weeks and was driven back to the dealership over an hour away for me to pick up. The first brand new car I had ever purchased and from the second I bought it, problems. The pass the buck method. From the first time I put the key in the ignition the car started and stalled immediately. Also, the cd player does not work and has never worked since I've had the car. Now I say we, but they ended up not putting me on the loan.
The rear view mirror dimmer is wonderful. I told him I'm not signing anything until the Nitro gets fixed or I'll either pick another car or go elsewhere. I got an excellent deal on it. Cheap leather on steering wheel was worn. No check engine light, no transmission light, no winding sound!. That is very dangerous and I don't recommend it since it blew the muffler apart and I almost crashed into the car parked across from me in the parking lot.
The recall began on March 27, 2017. I told them it was the alternator. I saved and saved wanted this car so bad. I was told, and verified on car fax, that the vehicle had never been in an accident. Everyone with Dodge Nitro issues should seek a lawyer and proceed with legal action. I personally uncovered all deception and gathered all evidence to hand to my lawyers to take to court.
I just got towed off the freeway for what I suspect is the Alternator. This vehicle has been more troublesome than I ever intended it to be. Keep in mind I gave the keys to my Eclipse to them so they could check it out for appraisal. Then I informed him of the auto fraud. I was told too late. The parkway is directly across the street from the gas station.
I've had a 2001 4-cyl Stratus and a 2006 6-cyl Stratus. It got so bad one day that it made the sound from the radio stop working. It had 22 miles on it when I purchased it. My Nitro had so much water it sound like an ocean wave going from the front to back seat. I put one cd in the player and it got stuck.
The windows in the rear did snap! He then told me the eclipse belongs to the bank now. An innocent everyday object such as a drinks bottle or a folding chair can be suddenly transformed into a lethal weapon with potentially disastrous consequences. In nine monthsI'm under 3000 miles. They asked me where my wheel was because they couldn't find theirs. The Nitro has about a 20-18 gallon tank. When I returned the indicator read 14. I havent had any problems with the car since the day I bought it and I've put about 50,000 miles on it.
I also have the issue with the light flashing while in motion, usually in the freeway, gas spills out when pumping to full, the siding is lifting up by the door, my ac broke, compressor, glove compartment falls out when open, doors won't lock consistently, cd player doesn't always play. Either Dodge has a terrible product or really terrible mechanics because what they fix just keeps breaking and once warranty is up it's just, 'oops sorry, normal wear and tear. Both spray nozzles have cracked beneath the hood. On the on ramp he hears the winding sound start. They put these vehicles like a plastic car kit, when the glue that holds them together wear off they fall apart from engine to exterior and interior.
Biggest complaint is the wipers! Chrysler and Dodge owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Have you changed the air filter? All of my driving was in city. Gas constantly overflows while filling up. We immediately got the oil changed and it was actually at the same place the previous owner used. Please tell me how and if I can avoid any further issues.
