Been driving my "New to me" 2007 SXT auto for two weeks now after retiring my 97 Cherokee after 411,000km (five Jeeps in 20 years). Thought the steering was a bit light initially, but now enjoy the ride. Makes me realize how rough the Jeep was getting. lol. Gas mileage is about the same as the Jeep too (I have a light right foot and take my foot off the throttle to slow down instead of slamming it on the brake). I didn't know until after I bought the Nitro that she was also born in Toledo, so I guess the addage "Once a Jeep man, always a Jeep man" can be changed to "Once a Toledo Plant man, always a Toledo Plant man".
