My Nitro 07 is the beast vehicle around for the price. It handles great, it is solid, with tight steering and power. The look is tough and cool. I am about to lease my 2nd Nitro. I have a different vehicle as well, more expensive than the Nitro and the quality is not a good as the Nitro. Just because it is a lower cost SUV your not losing anything compared to the higher cost SUV. Get one now!
Look of vehicle, sound/noise buffering. great handling, with a roomy interior.
The gas mileage is not great, but compared to other SUV's it is good. I would make power seats standard in all of them but it is not.
