Have had to drive in a lot of snow and ice since I received it a week and 1/2 ago. Must say am impressed with Nitro's ability to get around. This includes quite a few hills, no problems. Handling and braking are both better than expected. Had a Dakota Laramie and this is as comfortable if not more so. While gas mileage is not great I'm sure it will improve with break in. am very satisfied with the Nitro. Did the change tires same day I bought it. Never have liked Goodyears, but then again most OEM tires are not that great.
Loads of standard features. Looks , interior comfort. Really nothing bad to say.
Would like to see an assist handle for front seats, and better OEM tires.
