Whats up everyone.. I haven't posted here or logged on in a very LONGGGG time. I decided to stop by and see what everyone was talking about in the Nitro world. Then I saw this thread.
I thought about trading mine in, mostly due to the gas consumption. My fill ups now are about $80 like some of you. From the very start when I purchased the Nitro fuel economy was bad (14.5 - 15.5 mpg) and it has not been better, although once I was able to see about 430 miles to a tank full on a road trip with a 90-100mph average speed (that really surprised me :SHOCKED
Unlike some of you wanting a smaller car to save gas. The way I feel is for the size of the Nitro and the way it "waste" gas I could be in a bigger SUV. My brother has an 07 Tahoe that he got at the same time I got the Nitro and his average mpg is about the same as mine. Not good IMO.
The only thing that stopped me from trading it in was the fact that I would be about $10,000 upside down. I guess I'm keeping it for another 3 years.
