:Racing: I found an electric blue sxt that I think I have to have:ura1:<---:loser1:

Just wandering what you fellow Nitro owners think of yours since thier still fairly new and I still don't see that many around.
When I test drove one, the dealer filled it up with gas and I drove it for a day, mostly town, very little highway. I calculated 21mpg when I filled it up before returning it:Banana01: :pepper: I was very impressed considering in my trailblazer I would have only gotten about 10mpg same drive.

What kind of mileage have you all been getting with your Nitros. I don't grandma drive (no offense meant) and I don't hotrod either (unless I'm running late)

Are these comfortable on trips?
Do they seem to be reliable?
Is their a lift available, for future mods.

Thanks for any info. I sure am looking forward to be apart of this forum.
:wave: Have a great evening everyone!!!!:wave:

so far i have about 1,600 miles on it and love it. i also have had several comments about it looks o
Welcome to the forum,
My mileage is around 16 in town and on a trip to the other side of the state I got around 22 mpg going a steady 70. I have seen an increase in gas mileage lately.

That blue is a very pretty colour!
Thanks for replies!!!

Thank you all for your replies. I didn't realize they had so many different options. I'm still trying to get the lot to give me more for my trailblazer. I wish I would have cruised the dodge lot before I bought it.:mad: I might have to wait for my next pay raise to get it and just have both.:beerchug:
I'm still thinking I drove a good one if it got 21 mpg. city. Might have to take it for an interstate test drive.:thk: :cool: ...

Thanks again....:wavey:
Can't wait to be cruisen in style.......:Racing:
I've noticed an increase of gas mileage too. I'm at about 18 city and 22 highway, much better the the 2500 ram i had at about 8mpg. so dump the chevy and grab life by the horns. :Racing:
