Hi and thank you for this forum! My wife is potentially a future Nitro Owner. However, yesterday a co-worker told me he heard the Nitro was being phased out already. Any truth to that?
If you read many of the newspaper reports posted here and Page Ranking from Chrysler you will see that Chrysler LLC plans to cut their present SUV/truck models in half. And no
the Nitro is still in production, but it's future is not clear. Chrysler is pushing their Jeep Brands like the Liberty for SUVs. (When is the last time you have seen a Nitro TV ad?) If you like the looks of the Nitro as we all do here, better buy one in the next year or so, to be safe.

I can't speak for others, but I am just glad I got mine and if they do drop it in the future I don't care (think it is a bad ideal however). No problem with parts or service if that does happen since the new Jeep Liberty is about the same. As far as resale, I doubt it would make much impact, and may ever help it, since many love or hate the design. Just my .02
Have you taken one for a test drive yet? Take your Wife, you may want to take one home as many here have. Good Luck!
