I purchased the Nitro looking to get away from the pickup trucks I have recently owned. I am happy with my purchase and have been enjoying the drive. The ride is a bit uneven with the suspension not being very firm. It seems to take much of the bumps up front, but while running down the highway, its very smooth. Overall I really enjoy the vehicle.
Favorite features include the look of the vehicle, the turning ability is nice, and the interior is very nicely laid out and functional.
The gas mileage is not what it is stated to be. I average a bit over 15 mph, and I dont ride it hard. I was hoping for 19 or 20. Also, being used to a V8, I'm having a bit of a time adjusting to the small V6.
