2010 Dodge Nitro Warranty

Dodge offers a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty, which is on the short side for the class. Chrysler has discontinued its lifetime powertrain warranty and now offers a five-year/100,000-mile warranty.

Buyers should note that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall on 2010 Dodge Nitros. According to the recall notice, "These vehicles may have been built with an improperly formed or missing brake booster input rod retaining clip." This could result in sudden brake failure.
