Hey welcome to the forum! I have had the tire pressure monitor screw up one time. I was driving in the summer and all of a sudden it said I had 13 psi in my driver rear tire. Then it went back to normal. I don't notice any pull with the Nitro. You might want to get your alignment checked.

If your having a pull this early, I would run back to the dealer and have them look at it.

You should not have to pay for an alignment after only a couple of weeks.

The TPS sensors are very sensitive to cold. The tire pressure will drop when it gets cold but I have found that the sensors read a couple of extra pounds light until they warm up a bit.

I push the pressure up a bit during the winter months since they aren't going to expand as much. I run 35-38 in the winter and around 33 or so in the summer. I see no difference in the ride and it gives me a bit longer before it bleeds down to the 30 pound level that you start getting warnings.

Good luck with your new ride.

Talking Ours too !

I also bought my wife her very first new car about 6 months ago by researching all the crossovers and suv's. She decided on the Nitro R/T with a sunroof and is smiling every day. The only concern I have may be bitter/sweet and wonder why you don't see many Nitro's on the steet or interstate. That's both good and maybe bad. Good, because she own's a vehicle that gets a lot of notice, honks, and waves. Could be bad because maybe others see something we didn't. We're going with good and how can a person lose with "Lifetime Warranty" ? In 6 months and 4400 miles, we've had absolutely no issues other than the dealership messing it up a bit. They applied surplus tire shine prior to delivery and after getting home, we had spots thrown all over the lower body . Wasn't a body shop in town that could remove the spots as the tire shine stained the paint. The dealership stood behind their prep-shop error and re-painted the bottom from front to rear. It probably wouldn't have been noticed if the color wasn't white, so take notice....don't use tire shine !!!
