My Nitro is my first SUV and I mostly love it. I had to take it into the dealer for a leaky transmission twice in the first 3 months I owned it. One of my rear window motors died and had to be replaced about 8 months after I bought it. Overall, a good car, but I worry about its reliability in the long run. Fun to drive, and people comment on the styling.
Aux port on stereo. Roomy enough for a road trip. color choices (mine is orange!).
Black paneling on outside of doors comes off easily, transmission issues, taller people have to stick their head in first because of the low clearance, not so great gas mileage.
