I traded in my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan for this SUV. I did not want such a large vehicle now that my little ones are getting older they need less stuff to tote around, I test drove Grand Cherokees, Dodge Darango, the new Journeys and the Equinox, nothing could compare to the exterior and interior appeal of the Nitro, especially when it came to price. I really thought I wanted a new Cherokee, until I sat in one for $32,000 and there was nothing in it! But for $9,000 less I got everything I wanted except DVD.
Sunroof, wheels, Sirius radio, Ipod and bluetooth capabilities, tint. Handles great, perfect amount of room for a family of 5. Looks great.
The second day I owned it the molding in the inside by the drivers foot came off, easy to snap back in, but irritated me. Gas mileage is comparable to Caravan, was expecting better.
