The EVIC is an optional feature if you don't have that then you have to change the settings with the key fob.

Seems as though this area is a little quiet. Who all owns a Nitro?
I just got a 2007 SXT, electric blue with the appearance package..which means the fender flares are color matched instead of grey. We went with the 17" aluminum wheels, the customer preferred package and a moonroof.
Getting an overhead DVD and my XM radio installed next week.
Check out my carspace for photos.

Saw your page and truck - nice although I don't know if I could handle looking at that color all day
Did you try out the manual trans? How is your Nitro to drive? I took one out for a brief test drive but in the end got a Charger. Still like the idea of an suv though.

Well I had the sunburst orange Caliber so the blue is nothing. I didn't try the manual, didn't want one this time around. I love driving it, sitting up higher is more appealing to me and it drives great in the snow with the 4wd.

The echo found in the vast open space of the Dodge forums is fitting to a company that seems destined to implode.
I rented a car while in Kauai recently and was told to pick one out between the Nissan Rogue and the Dodge Nitro. Because we had alot of gear the Nitro was an easy choice for it's relative size. When I drove up to baggage claim, the kids were laughing at the car asking if that's the best I could do. My initial response was - hey, you're in Kauai on vacation and we've got transportation that fits us comfortably and you going to make fun of the car I chose? After a week of driving this car, my thoughts were - it's a decent rental car, fit us and all our gear comfortable and had really nice windshield wipers. But the accerleration made me think it was a 4 cylinder car while the gas milege made me realize it was a gas hungry 6.
Me thinks Dodge should just admit, it's not much more that a decent rental car not fit for long term ownership. Consumer Reports just reported on all cars and they had nothing nice to say about the Nitro - not even the windshield wipers.

Well, the wipers got recalled in '09, so that's probably why they get dinged for them. Can't remember the last time I saw one though. I think most people tend toward the Liberty instead.
It would be nice to hear from any owners out there.

I've been paying more attention the last few days and have spotted two Nitros in my area.
