i just bought my nitro but every time i fill up the gas tank it will click off at the nozzle but then i get gas spewing back out! it has happened to me twice now at two different pumps at two different gas stations. it scared me very much and is a huge safety hazard! my nitro is no longer under warranty but i know i am not alone with having this issue. the only fix i know of is replacing the gas tank at my expense. i feel as this is a well known and prevalent issue dodge should address it asap! *tr

i am original owner of this vehicle. it is garaged , well maintained, and serviced by dealership. there is no history of abuse, or auto accidents associated with this vehicle. the interior drivers door handle snapped off in my hands yesterday, while attempting to exit the parked vehicle. this is a considerable safety concern. only exit is through an electric window, due to large console between seats. i have contacted dodge, and due to mileage (79k) and age (2007), they offer no assistance in fixing, so i will have to pay at dealership. i have seen enough complaints in various forums of this same issue, to warrant contacting you. this is not cosmetic, but of vital concern to driver safety. please consider further action with a view to recall , so that manufacturer will proceed rectify this dangerous flaw. thank you for your consideration. *tr

the emergency brake never worked like it should, even when new, the electric window switches and power door locks work when they feel like it, and the inside door handles break for no reason other than poor workmanship and poor choice of materials (plastic) rendering them useless. these are all known problems for years with dodge nitros . they should be forced to recall them for these reasons, especially because they are all dangerous. it's like the money pit. dodge wants $150.00 per door just to repair the handle assemblies. are they kidding me? who makes a door handle out of cheap plastic? we take care of this vehicle like its a new car, and never abuse it. it has only 60,000 miles on it. the first door handle broke with 30,000 miles. dodge had better do something before i no longer own this vehicle or i will cross them off my list for good. i have no problem going back to ford and staying there.(or hyundai for that matter). *tr
