Have had our Nitro almost a year and happy with it. Came up with an issue that to me that is strange. The front cigarette power outlet only powers up when the vehicle is on. The rear cargo area outlet is on constantly. In the day of cell phones and car chargers is weird that if you need to charge your phone while out of the vehicle you will have to plug it into the cargo area plug. My jeep commander has 2 plugs up front, one is constant one is powered with key on. This was an issue when my wife was at work and her cell phone started to go dead, she ran out to the nitro and plugged it in, after a few hours she went out and the phone was still not charged, thus I found that she will have to open the rear hatch and charge from the back if she is not driving the nitro, in order to charge the phone. I understand the issue of running the battery down, but come on, if other DC vehicles have a constant plug up front, why not the nitro? Just food for thought.
