2010 Dodge Nitro Reviews

This is really been a great cardio only issue that I have noticed is the one report that I have put on here recently about the fan belt when the car is idleing will turn on and it will make this horrible noise.. It makes me wonder what is grinding against and if it is going to cause further damage aside from that I find that the car is very roomy very unique style.. It is very comfortable and the four wheel drive great. I have never had any issues with mine I travel for my job consistentlyand have to take passengers with me.We can comfortably fit five people and all of our luggage in the back with no prob. I have a 2010 dodge nitro and would give it a four point fivestars unless I have to put alot of funds out on a serpentine belt.noise Only happened recently while ideling one day?
