Ok, I picked up my Nitro 2 hours ago. Does anybody else have a problem with the heater performance? It just never seems to heat up inside the car. Makes a ton of noise but just doesn't seem to do much.

I would say something might be wrong. I know when I start mine in the morning, it'll just about run me out after about 10 minutes. Nitro doesn't have a spot in the garage yet and it's been in the low 30's over night.

I haven't noticed the same problem with my Nitro. I didn't park it in the garage last night so it sat outside all night. It was 40? F this morning and the heater was blowing hot in just a few minutes.

I would take your Nitro back to the dealer and let them check it out.

Good luck!

It's 39'F for some reason here in Houston so I just used my heater on the way to class..it worked quite nice..the only thing that seems different is that on high fan the output didnt seem as much as Im accustomed too but it seemed to do the job quite nice :cool:

Well, verdict was that it's broke. Parts are gonna take about a week to come in. So, I didn't even have it 24 hours! Looks like i'll be driving a new F150 for a week - at least the Ford has heat!

Well this has proved to be a really disappointing buying experience. I still do not have my Nitro and they really have no idea when the parts will come in. Now it seems they have the same model and color I purchased and they do not want to trade me out for it. It is just a joke. They do not return my calls or seem to care. I have contacted Dodge so we will see what happens.

Sounds like you might of unfortunately chose a notsogood dealer...Id defintely contact Dodge relations immediately and not give in to anything thats not satisfactory - thats what you seem to have to do nowadays..

Yeah, this dealer is a "five star" dealer - I don't even think they should get one star. I pretty much reflected that in the survey they sent. Now they are saying that it will be fixed tomorrow or they will give me a different Nitro - we'll see......

If they dont, contact DaimlerChrsler immediately and keep bugging them. You have certain rights and need to make them aware of this experience at the dealer..If they cant fix it they will have to offer a different Nitro or a total refund..

I talked to the dealership today. Supposedly they will either have my Nitro back to me tomorrow or they will replace it. The really irritating thing is that they have another one - same model & color at their other store and they don't want to swap me out. We'll see.
