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.
