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.
