2010 Nitro Boats X-5 Description

Feed your addiction to angling with the most affordable, value-packed bass boat on the water, the NITRO X-5. At a nimble 17-feet, 4-inches (5.28 m) long, it also sports a wide and stable 7-feet, 6-inch (2.29 m) beam for some huge casting space. That also translates into massive amounts of storage areas, as well as all enough fishing features to please even the most demanding bass anglers.

Once you’re out in your X-5, you’ll quickly discover that the price is the only thing entry level about this boat. Top-quality features throughout include the Lowrance® X96 TX fishfinder, MotorGuide® trolling motor, Mercury® outboard and more.

I purchased a new 2010 X-5 w/115 Optimax package. 1st problem is motor will not stay straight when trailering turns to the right to the point of bending one of the rubber feet on the transom saver flat, the only thing keeping the motor on the transom saver was the strap around the motor. 2nd problem is there is a tremendous motor torque when under way to the point to fight the steering to keep the boat straight. 3rd problem is when the motor is put into gear the lower unit sounds like it is trying to come apart. 4th problem the factory installed trolling motor is to close to the deck of the boat and the prop hits the boat so if accidentally hit the switch the prop will hit the deck All of these problems were identified to the dealer and I was told that is the way it was and nothing could be done. Apparently no research, poor engineering and no quality control was done on this model.
