Purchased As New
Bought this Nitro because 1) I like Chrysler products, 2) I will only buy American and 3) Definitely the best value (most vehicle for the money). This Nitro is a truck based SUV. I traded in a Dodge Dakota so that is what I wanted. This being said, it does ride similar to a pick up truck. My wife has a Mercury Mariner Premier which is an extremely nice SUV, that rides like a car. However the Mariner was about $8,000. more. If you know you want a soft riding car like SUV, look at the Mariner but be ready to pay the steeper price. You cannot find this much vehicle in an SUV for this price, trust me, I looked around. Dodge was offering about $4000. in incentives ($2000. loyalty, $1000. Midwest Region bonus cash, $1000. to finance through a credit union). The standard features which are impressive include 4 wheel anti-lock disc brakes, traction control, roll over mitigation, power windows / locks, front and side airbags, am/fm/cd/satellite radio stereo. Mileage combined city and highway is improving, started at 13 mpg average, now at 14.5 mpg average with almost a thousand miles driven. This is a great midsize truck for the money. You cannot beat lifetime powertrain warranty, no other manufacturer offers it.
