    Heya, so I just bought a nice 2011 3.7 nitro heat 2wd with only 38k miles. It's been a fairly decent car but there are some things I am uneasy about.

  6. Newbie Check in!
    I have a 2007 Nitro that has less than 60k miles on it. Started to think about doing some upgrades so I thought I would check out the Forum. First upgrade I want to attack is the transmission.

    Hi, My son purchased an 07 Nitro SLT, 160,000kms. We were driving down the street, when all of a sudden there was a whirring noise, we started to slow down, and then a loud bang. The drivetrain locked up solid and we skidded to a halt. Needed a tow truck, and dollies to get it home. Smoke...

    My 2007 SLT will intermittently (but for the most part) make a prominent but quick higher pitched scraping noise immediately prior to shifting up at cruising speed gears followed by a small to violent shutter throughout the vehicle.
