First let me say I love everything about the Nitro.....EXCEPT....what a nightmare of a transmission!!! My new Nitro is in the shop and has been for over a week...they say they are going to replace torque converter but cannot even get the part to do so!! What a big disappointment!!! I dont think you can beat the Nitro for the money but needless to say this whole repair thing is making me grey before my time...my hair is starting to match the color of my Nitro hehehehehe!! Anyway....guess we will see what the fix does....

Welcome to the forum! Sorry for your troubles though :(
No one needs greys before their time!

With that said, check out this thread in our TSB section. There is a lot of talk regarding the transmission issues.
You might also answer this poll regarding the trans issues.
Here is another thread regarding trans updates.

Well, I see you beat me to it!

My Nitro Problems!

I think i have you guys beat. I bought a silver Nitro around Thanksgiving and got to drive it for a month. I was driving down the road when the car stopped pulling. It was stuck in "limp mode". which means first gear. The car sounded like it was going to blow up!! Then it came out of limp mode and started driving REALLY FAST on its own, slamming mine and my daughters head into the back of our seats. I took it to the shop and they "fixed it". Only to have it back 4 more times for the same thing. The last time they worked on it they kept it for 26 days. Then the paint started coming off on the door. They painted it- only making it look worse which put it back in the shop. I was so excited to get a new family SUV only to be disappointed.

I feel for you - I just had the same problem last night. The car went into limp mode and was towed to the local dealer. Not sure what is wrong - I should find out today. What a bummer because I just LOVE my Nitro!
