We bought our Nitro from the Dodge dealer in Aberdeen and they were excellent throughout the process. We purchased this car as we wanted something different (after 3 years with an OK but oh so dull and unreliable VW Touran), needed a tow car for my rally car and it offered value for money in terms of standard kit. We looked at a lot of 4x4s with the main issue with the others being the bland looks of most of them. We have now had the car for a month and are very pleased with it. We have found it to be not nearly as bad as the reviews would suggest. Yes the ride is a tad bouncy and it is thirsty (28mpg to date) but otherwise we have found that the car handles quite well with direct steering with a very good turning circle for a car of this size. Although the engine is a bit gruff at low speed when at higher speeds it is smooth and quiet. We also find the interior of a better quality that that suggested with so far none of the trim rattles that were evident in the Touran from almost day 1. Time will tell if we remain satisfied with the car but so far we are pleased that we took a risk on purchasing it despite the reviews !
