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.

Caliber, The most versatile car around!! by CarGuy2012 on 06/18/2012. Trim: 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT.
Pros: Drives like a truck and acts like one too!! Low maintenance CVT. Boston Sound System. THE SPACE!!! Steering wheel controls. plastic cargo area. Tires are very affordable.
Cons: Hard plastic is the main component of the interior but easier to clean!! Sunroof. im just not a fan of holes in a roof but it doesnt leak.
Overall review: This car suprised me in the fact that its a car but has 8 in of ground clearence. lots of punch, and enough room and cupholders for its passengers. I was a die hard chevy person but after all our problems with our Equinox i decided to look at other brands. I drove a Caliber and alll it's competitiors and it surpasses them all. Dodge really hit a homerun on this car because Americans need multipurpose vehicles that can do more than one thing. Way to go Dodge.
