I love my Nitro R/T. If you buy a Nitro buy an R/T 4.0L. Don't but a 3.7L. I know it sounds strange, but go for the 4.0. The power difference is amazing. It is fun to drive, there is plenty of head and leg room. I have a 10-year old and a 12-year old, so I promise they have plenty of room in the back seat. Adults also have plenty of room in the back. The steering is excellent, it handles like a small sporty sedan does. The turning is excellent, especially with all the samll parking spaces now available. There is plenty of storage room in the back for groceries, backpacks, etc. I love how it sits up high enough for all to see out but we don't need steps to get in, especially since I am 5'1".
The exterior gets lots of compliments, especially with added chrome accents. Interior room. Storage room in back. Gas mileage for a 4.0 is great (I average 20 mpg city!!) 20" tires.
