This SUV is an all around awesome vehicle for the money. The other brands (mid size SUV's) I looked at were too cramped for space inside, too common looking, and even boring. The nicest ones were way up there in price, even before you add in options. The Dodge Nitro does everything I need from a SUV and does at a reasonable price.
Great Looks. The 3.7 L. engine has a good track record (as a Jeep engine) and has some notable refinments. ABS brakes work great! (Had a scary experience but the Nitro handled it very well) Rides real nicely. The fit and finish is outstanding for a domestic.
