I've owned my 2008 Dodge Nitro for almost 2yrs now, I can honestly say its one of the best vehicles I've owned so far. I chose to get the 4x4 and I live in upstate NY where we get a few feet of snow every snow fall. The Nitro handles great in the snow, and can really bite into the deep stuff with no issues. I get A LOT of compliments on my Nitro, from the color to the design,to people saying it looks "tough" and I feel extremely safe everytime I drive it in bad weather. I can def see myself buying the same vehicle in the future as long as they continue keeping the Nitro rugged, and aggresive. This vehicle is an suv..and it rides, and handles like one. I love it.
The agressive lines and tough look it has.
I would love to see a more off-road type of Nitro.. with bigger chunkier tires, something I could drive to work Mon-Fri and take it on some trails on Saturday!!
