Dodge At All Costs by Boilermaker from Lafayette on 02/23/2012. Trim: 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT, Owned 6 years.
Pros: The style of the vehicle initially drew me in like the sirens from Greek mythology. The seats are comfortable with plenty of head and leg room. The back seats fold down allowing for lots of space when hauling items.
Cons: Serious issues with quality and reliability! Less than 40,000 miles and this vehicle has been nothing but a money pit. Major problems involving suspension. Have have had to replace all tie rods and ball joints. Dealership knows all about the suspension problems with Calibers, however, Dodge won't do a recall and address the issue. Water still leaking into rear tail light assembly even after it was replaced. Cheap interior is made of plastic that scratches very easily. No acceleration when pulling into traffic and poor handling while driving on ice. Should have concentrated more on the important things instead of gimicky items like the beverage cooler in the glove box.
Overall review: This car is a mechanic's wet dream! Considering all the money put into this vehicle for major and minor repairs I sincerely recommend you go ahead and spend the extra money and get yourself something a little more reliable. On the other hand, if you're a masochist I highly recommend this vehicle. The Dodge Caliber... proof that you still get what you pay for.

2007 Dodge Caliber by An MSN Autos Consumer on 08/25/2011. Trim: 2007 Dodge Caliber R/T FWD, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Price was good. Options good. Gas mileage was good.
Cons: I bought this car new with 16 miles on it. At around 30k my alternator goes out. at 40 my fuel pump goes out. At 70 i have some minor electrical problems, Today (8/25/11) my front driver's side tire FALLS OFF!!!! i mean the front suspension lower Ball joint comes out of it's mounting and my tires do a sort of V shape in the middle of the road. Lucky i was only going 20 mph if i was on the highway i'd be dead. This car is horrible i dont recomend anyone buying it. yeah the 16k i spent on it was nice but 4 thousand dollars in repairs later i could have done much better. Do a google search and you will find lots and lots of complaints about this garbage.
Overall review: HORRIBLE CAR DONT BUY!!!!
