I purchased the 2007 Dodge Nitro in May of 2007 and love it! I gave the Nitro a 10 on everything but gas mileage. This is the first 'new' vehicle that I have purchased and I could not be happier with my decision. I kept my 2000 BMW 323 Ci but drive the Nitro 90% of the time. Dodge has given the Nitro a bold design, inside and out. Excellent performance/handling and it's so fun to drive. You won't be disapointed with this purchase!
Better gas mileage. However, since it's an SUV, it's not so bad compared to others in it's class. Plus, I tend to have a heavy foot when it comes to the gas pedal.
I absolutely in love with my Nitro. I bought on New Years Eve and drove it home on the 1st of January of 2007 - I think it was the first one the dealership sold. I have the sunburst orange - the body style is so slick some people think it is a "baby" hummer - I a a real estate broker so it looks good when I drive into the great neighborhoods and it gets attention - it fits several guests very comfortably and it is fun fun fun to drive. I practically live in it and I can't say enough great things about my car.
Love the look and the sunroof and the roominess - I can carry almost anything in it - I love the outlet plug - I love the sunroof - I love the whole console look
Several things I would improve and they may already have done it for the 2008 - I think it needs an extra plug in for phones or Ipod in the front in the 2007 there is only one place to plug in the dash - the outlet is also a nice feature. Better gas mileage - although I get about 25 on highway.
