Pros: the car seat is very high
Cons: not enough of sound proof meterialI bought this car new after I notice that this vehicle was very noise in the cabin every sound that this suv make is heard and that is only problem .
Great Automobile with uncomfortable seats
Pros: road feel and safty
Cons: driver and passenger seatsIf I had spent more time in the drivers seat, I would have ordered the optional seats at a much increased cost or not ordered at all. The detail to engineering is commendable and the performance is even beyond what I had expected from a quality diesel engine . Unsure of options now available to inprove comfort to driver and passenger.
Great little car ... and cute, too
Cons: The only weakness I can see is that the paint is very thin, thought the color is great.I love this car. It's fun to drive and very comfortable, with better seats than Honda or Subaru (our last two cars). It has a fine Garmin navigation system, and true keyless operation ... and the sound system is much better than H & S, too. We're at 3200 miles now, and getting about 29 mpg avg.
Canada screwed up a good product
Pros: Electronics are nice
Cons: RattlesThe Lexus RX line has been the benchmark for all to follow until now. My new RX 350 looks nice, fit is good not excellent, ride is rough if not down right poor and the worst problem are rattles. I mean lots of rattles. Little to no quality control. Buy a Honda CRV and save a lot of cash.
Pros: The look
Cons: Didn't get to drive it enough
Advice: Find a goood dealer who listens I know one in san diego area. Bryan Williams Toyota/Scion of El CajonHandles very well has great power. Roomy and spacious.
Pros: The color (inferno red pearl coat) and the style of the exterior
Cons: The interior materials and quality
Advice: Look at all your options and decide what kind of suv your looking for.the 2010 nitro should not be confused with non truck like suv's.the ride and handeling of this suv is firm and can transmit jolts to its occupants when the pavement is any thing less than smooth.Though the front seats are comfortable and the dash layout and controls are easy to reach and use,the interior plastic should be brought to par with its competetors. I don't think the dodge boys were trying to make a posh suv but one that was rugged and had truck like ability and tough looks. The 3.7l motor works fine but could use a five speed trans and 3.55 gears instead of the 3.73 that came standard in my vehicle that is a 4x4. this would help the mpg's. Overall I like this suv and if properly maintained it should last a long time. This is a utility/truck suv that has a true off road feel to it with up right seating without to much posh. So if all out comfort is what you are looking for this may not be your cup of joe. but if rugged good looks solid practicality and true 4 wheel drive ability are. Then you might just want to look at the dodge nitro 4x4 or 4x2 models.
Cons: it rolls on hills
Advice: great family cardoes GREAT on the highway. we filled up once the whole time we were in San Francisco.
