If you want a SUV for snow and rain and being on the road 99% of the time than the Nitro fits the bill, but it sounds like you want to do some off roading. I would get a Jeep Wrangler, and now that you can get the 4 door unlimited, then space is no longer an issue.

I'm not impressed with them, myself, and I'm a Mopar nut. Very cramped interior, which is inexcusable for a vehicle it's size. And it appears that everything inside is made of tupperware.

And don't even THINK about 4 wheeling in a crossover vehicle. The Nitro, and other crossovers are built on CAR chassis. They are really little more than tall cars with extra ground clearance. You might as well take a Camry out on the trail.

Take the money you've started saving, and spend it on a Ramcharger. NO WAIT, DON'T STOP READING YET! Then, instead of adding to the savings account, buy parts to upgrade your truck. Don't worry if you're not an ASE certified mechanic. You will learn as you go, It's not as difficult as you'd think. Anything you need to know is on the internet, if you do your homework, and there are people who have been there who WILL help.

Anyway, the Ramcharger would be alot more useful trail truck, and it would be a good project to keep you off the streets (you crazy kid.) Not to mention how much better you would feel about having a truck that you put YOUR OWN sweat into to bring it to life. Check out:

New 4WD systems (especially on small "SUVs") are "smart" aka really just a poorly designed AWD which is no good for wheeling. And as for how long it will last, it's a Dodge. Not as long as it should.

For 2011 Dodge Nitro ranks 22 out of 23 affordable compact SUV. This ranking is based on our analysis of 47 published studies and test drives of the Dodge Nitro, and our analysis of reliability and safety. according to cnn, The...Dodge Nitro R/T 4X4 shovels a good cabin tech package into a vehicle that delivers mediocre performance and economy." but for edmunds, "The [2011]Dodge Nitro has a macho name and a macho image, but that's about where its appeal ends. Just about any other compact crossover SUV would be a wiser purchase." hope that this gives an answer to your dodge repair questions.
