Have had my Nitro SLT for about 3 weeks now and I love it! First gotta
say that I gave up a Mitsubishi 3000 VR4 for this, and that I really went
to the dealership looking to buy a Magnum AWD.
The Magnum, which was "kinda fitted out to my specs" was about $46,000
before taxes. I could hack this no prob, but it just didn't seem like it
was my cup of 10w50 "cuz, although it was a big block HEMI, it still
didn't have all the I wanted - plus they (the Magnums) are all sissy
shifters (arrrrrrgh). So, I went for the Nitro at $29,000 which had more
amenities, a V-6 (3.7 Liter), and more room, which as I get older and
seem to acquire more crap, seems to make more sense.
Things I love about my Nitro:
It's really comfortable.
The heated leather seats.
The in-dash 6 CD/MP3/DVD player. (My ol' cars had them in the trunk.)
Terrific gauge cluster/menu system which tells you almost every thing
that one could think of and is really simple to use.
Pull out rear tail-gate tray that converts to table for tailgating,
Two AC outlets.
Things that need improvement:
Nothing so far, except my gas mileage is about 14.7 mpg combined.
Let me know what you think. This I the first time (out of about 15 cars I
have owned) that I have bought a first year production model - big no no
