the 2007 model year refers to vehicles built before approximately the end of June 2007. Then they made the modifications necessary for the new model year and started producing 2008 model Nitro's. So, when was your built? It will say on the sticker on the driver door frame.

In Europe, the higher end 2008 models will come with an automatic AC while the lower end models still come with the standard (non-automatic) AC. All 2007 models came with non-automatic AC.

Roland
hey Roland, what do you mean by "automatic"? Do you mean like a thermostatic control like we have in our homes? :confused:

Yes, exactly. It will try keeping the temperature at a user set level, either by heating or cooling. However, at the moment I'm actually not sure if 'automatic' in the Nitro does include the heater or if it's limited to controlling the temperature when the AC is on. I do not have enough information yet. May be somebody else knows the exact details? Fact is that the sales brochure does explicitly distinguish between 'AC' and 'automatic AC'.

Regards,
Roland

that's what I thought, but wanted to be clear. I know higher-end vehicles have had this kind of "climate control" systems for a long time.

Since it was not listed at the beginning of this thread, does this mean that 2008 Nitros sold in the US do not feature the automatic version of the AC system?

Regards,
Roland
I don't know about 2008 models exactly, as I have a 2007 model R/T. The R/T has all the bells and whistles but not that! Maybe another member with a 2008 can fill us in?

Waldorf. I have a 2008 SLT and as far as I can tell, it doesn't have that automatic terperature control feature.
Or let me put it this way... I sure haven't found it yet. lol.
But then I'm technology impaired sometimes.

Maybe the R/T has it for 2008?

it may not be a standard equipment thing, but an option you have to pay more for!!
