Overall Very Good Car — Bought car used and has been great. Had some front issues with ball joints, but once replaced everything has been great. Very cheap to repair and no major issues. Overall like the car and good value for what we could afford.

This Car Has A Lot To Offer. — I bought this car as a first car for my daughter and it was a perfect fit. Easy to drive, easy to park and loaded with a lot of features. The all wheel drive gave her more confidence when driving in the snow. The front and side airbags let me breathe a little easier when she was out driving to school, work or just around with her friends. Perfect car for a new driver or someone looking to downsize.

Don't Be Fooled By It's Exterior Looks... Like I Was! — I had to, finally, give up my loved Explorer, when we had a lot of issues fall in our lap at once. My husband fell off a roof and broke his leg at work, so his car was in another city, while mine was in the shop. We live far from town, and were left without a vehicle, so we had to get one quickly. Went to a local dealer, automatically loved the appearance of the Caliber... it is one nice looking car. The interior was pretty basic, but I could live with that. On day two of owning the vehicle, it overheated, and we found that a main hose to the radiator looked as if it had been sliced in two. The hose was nowhere in stock in our state. Finally got one from out of state (after the dealer checked his other in stock Caliber and found the same issue), only to find out the entire radiator kit had to be purchased to replace the hose. While replacing that, the transmission hose snapped off into repairman's hand... not a good sign! They ordered part, replaced next day... after they were working on various other issues (horn, airbag, etc.) we got the car back for a weekend trip to visit family a couple hours away. On the drive home, the temperature light came on and the car lost all power, at first refusing to accelerate, then losing speed to the point that I could no longer drive. Two hour drive took us seven, still didn't make it home in the Caliber. It had to be towed to the shop. Shop told us today that the Transmission O Rings are leaking... we lost all of our transmission fluid... I really loved the vehicle for the first few hours, and now I hate it! I do not even want to retrieve it from the shop!!! I will never, ever consider another Dodge vehicle as long as I live!!!

Dont Buy A Dodge. — Every 7-8 months something is wrong with the car. Always things that other cars never or rarely need a replacement. It really isnt worth the stress and hassle. I would buy anoter car from some other brand stay away from Dodge.

Looks Posh, But No Poof — Have squeeky brakes since new, agents say its brake dust........they clean it, ok for month or so and squeek is back, dont seem to have permanent solution. Damn irritating!! Only drive on roads...not off road. Sometimes there's no squeek....intermittent problem, even slowing down and turning left, no foot on brake will sometimes also squeek, tired of having cleaned, maybe should replace brakes and see how it goes. Multifunction control had to be replaced after just 19000km and R2000 later, spares in S.A overpriced!!!

Pros

Gas mileage, good price, reliability, decent cargo capacity, looks beauitiful. Practical.

Cons

lack of power... But in all fairness, what else should you expect from an I4 engine w/o turbo? Also can't fit my bike through the back door

Started Out Fantastic And Still Is — I have owned this car for about 3 months now and it has been fantastic, no complaints about performance except power. And the gas mileage is fantastic. avg 29-30 mpg. Love this car inside and out. I'm always thinking of adding a turbo into the engine however that is just me wanting to experiment. For my age at 20 years old in school and my current pay from my job, this car is extremely practical and will only let go of it if I have to.

Disappointed And Broke — I've owned the car 3 years, now roughly 65k miles on it. Since I bought it I've had to replace at least one tie-rod end every year, along with ball joints. Now both outer tie rods, both struts, lower control arms are shot. I bought the car to get out of a "nickel & dimer", but I'd take it back in a minute to get away from this junk that takes nearly a grand every year to get it to pass inspection. I regret it wholeheartedly. It's decent handling in the snow, too low clearance for my taste. Living in northern Maine (I'm talking 200 miles north of Bangor here), snow is more than a couple of inches. Gas mileage is good, it's one of the only things I continue to like about the car. If you're thinking of buying one, check it out thoroughly and see if any of the recalled items have actually been replaced. If you manage to get one without troubles, count yourself lucky.

The huge dash is the worst thing on this vehical.

Nc Caliber — It is a great car/hatchback/crossover(or what ever kind of vehical it is). I enjoy driving it, especially since it is the 5 speed manual. My only fear is that it is coming up on the milage for the netorious transmision problems!

Bland, boring, doesn't handle like a sports car, cus it isn't one!

Dependable But Boring — I hate to say that this car has really done a lot for me and I have really been able to depend on it. I did very little for service on it over the years yet its been there for me whenever I needed it, making it thru massive inches of snow with just snow tires for support and never let me down. That said, my first foray into a new car being a domestic was very disappointing. It's now worth less that half what I owe on it :(
