Actually, I use my parking b\break all the time, so maybe thats it. It just seems to last from when I pull out until about a minute down the road.Thanks!
My previous ride was a 2006 Jeep Commander and this seemed to be a frequent problem on that forum. If it continues, have your dealer check the parking brake adjustment. Some of the guys on the jeepcommander.com forum actually had the shoe freeze onto the disc, and the shoes shattered when they tried to move the Jeep! Do you know the build date of your Nitro? It could have been sitting for a while, allowing some rust to build on the shoes, which might cause them to stick.
