2007 Dodge Nitro SXT 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
My company bought a Nitro SXT 4x4 as a work vehicle for me that had a decent amount of cargo space, easily parked in NYC, had 4 wheel drive, and was relatively inexpensive. The lifetime powertrain warranty was another big plus. I've had a few minor problems with it including a collapsed driver's seat and cracked roof rail, but aside from that and taking care of the recalls, it's been 17 relatively trouble free months and 35,000 miles. Despite handling that's not so confidence inspiring, it's comfortable, does extremely well in the snow, looks great, and performs well for the money.
Exterior looks, 115V AC Power outlet, AC works extremely well, handles well in the snow, inexpensive, holds a lot of cargo with the seats down, U-Connect.
Gas mileage, horrible interior plastics, needs better storage bins in the doors and center console, would probably have better grip with wider wheels and tires (6.5 inch wheels with 225 tires is really narrow in my opinion).
