Contemplating - any complaints on V6?

I've been eyeing the Nitros for 3 months. The one I want is still at the dealer because it is orange and I guess no one but me would drive it. It's the V6 loaded SLT (I don't want more power). Does anyone have one - V6? I'm not one for buying vehicles in the first production year, but I did like it very much.

That's good to hear. I've never owned an SUV myself. My husband drives a Dodge Durango Hemi. The Nitro is the only SUV that I have ever liked whatsoever. Problem is I have a beautiful Mustang convertible that I don't want to part with. It's a 2002 with less than 20k miles. Ugh.

Oh... you have to go buy that Orange Nitro. On the other Nitro forum I'm on, the Orange is a hot pick and very hard to find (I've seen pics). I just bought my Light Khaki Metallic NITRO SXT about a month ago and it is truly a great SUV. Big enough for 5 comfortably... looks awsome... great handling... great on gas. I've had 4 Explorers and 1 GMC Envoy... all good... but the Nitro gives you everything in a brand new hot package and gas mileage. BY THE ORANGE NITRO!!!

I orderd a Sunburt Orange SLT for my wife in November and am waiting with bated breath for it to come in.

Re: Contemplating - any complaints on V6?

I have a SLT 4x2. The two complaints I has is no passenger assist handle for the front and the placement of the aux. plug on the radio. Why in the world would DC put it on the right over the shifter is beyond me. I guess they never test drive their products. I haven't checked the mpg real close but I don't think it is going to be anything great.

That Orange is a GREAT color!!! If you go to **************** and look around you'll find some pics of the Orange Nitro up in the header. Go through the pages of general discussion. There's even be a topic in there somewhere about someone seeing the new Orange Nitro and thinking that was THE COLOR!!!
I bought the Light Khaki Metallic and love it... but if the Orange had been there???????????????????????? It's show car action all the way!!!

Re: Contemplating - any complaints on V6?

My wife was kind of in the same predicament. When we purchased our Nitro, we traded in our '03 Durango R/T (The Hot Tamale). She was in love with that SUV. NOBODY cut her off intraffic!!! When she finally gave up the keys, she was a bit emotional but now she couldn't be happier. If it's looks that you're looking for in your car, the Nitro is the way to go. Everywhere my wife goes to it seems she has a story to tell about how people were checking out her ride. I'm sure that you to will be happy with the Nitro also. Good luck!

P.S. Sunburst Orange was our second choice after Inferno Red.
