I rented a Nitro and liked it enough to look at them more closely and buy one. It has met my expectations in every way so far. There are reviews that state that the handling is poor, however I beg to differ and have driven it in snow, rain, sleet, ice and on country roads as well as city. The heater/defrost system is excellent, as is the premium sound system. The back seat has lots of room - no problems accomodating a large/tall person. I average 18mpg, which is just marginally less than what I got out of my previous (smaller) SUV.
Option to turn 4 wheel drive on when I choose to, as well as the vehicle sensing when I need it. Very quiet ride and awesome premium sound system. Effective and easy to use climate control. Roomy back seat.
Another power outlet in the front that will stay on when vehicle is off.
