I've had no problems whatsoever to date with my 2007 Nitro. I like the look of it and the interior is very spacious. It's a very basic model but other than regular maintenance (i.e. oil changes and 1 recall) it has not seen a garage. I find that it's turning radius is too wide but otherwise it's easy enough to handle despite it's larger size. I'm not all that tall so it would probably "fit" someone with longer legs better than me, but I knew that when I tried it out for the first time.
I have to say that what got my attention was the exterior look. I still like it! It's different than any other SUV. I also like the large center console and that the vehicle is high off the ground.
Mileage is not great but I also knew that going in. It could definitely use some fine tuning when it comes to the turning radius. Otherwise I'm a satisfied customer.
