Lots Of Fun, But Could Be Better As A Daily Driver. — The CSRT is fast as hell and always underestimated. Unfortunately it's also based on a caliber, and has the cheapest interior in all the world, The seats are comfy and grippy, but they're covered in the crappiest paper thin vinyl. It's a real love-hate car, this.

Pros: Performance, Drivetrain

Cons: Build quality, Suspension

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I loved the quickness of the car

Perfect Daily Car To Drive — I loved the compact design, while still being able to fit people and luggage in my car. Also gets amazing gas milage for the car size that it is. And my sound system in my car is absolutely amazing! Awesome car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Easy to fit people and other things in, great daily driver.

Cons: Paint is not holding up as sting as i'd like

Buy The Car !!! —

The performance is just awesome, the turbocharger on this things pushing 285HP and 265 torque gets the car accelerating from 0-60KM/H in the mid 6 seconds. With the independant suspension and for it to be dropped some, handling makes it great !! good in tight corners!!! With those huge front brakes and viper calipers, you've got braking whenever you need it !!! My car, since i got from an other province, i don't know how they drove it but i was always putting repairs on it! Plus, like any other calipers, everything squeaks... Interior is awesome. In the front we've got to bucket seats racing style with leather and material with the SRT4 crest on the top portion of the seat. In the back we have a three seater still with leather and material. Both very comfy but the front seats are way better. Exterior styling is exacly like the regular caliper except thats it's dropped front and back, it's got a body kit on it, the spoiler is bigger and longer, the rims are 19inch and needs 225/45/19 tires(costly). I made 32 MPG with it witch is about 8.7 litters to a 100 kilometres! Depending on my driving style, i can reach around 11L/100KM (Ewww) This car is all out amazing, i loved it!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: What i like about the car is the outrageous power.

Cons: Sadlly, i rolled the car. total wreck. :(

Decent-it'll Work For Now, But Can't Wait For It To Be My Turn For A Project Car. — Purchased in order to have a "new" vehicle to avoid endless maintenance on an old Dodge Minivan. This fit the bill and my 6'1" child fit in the front seat just fine (back seat room requires front seat be scooted up to make kneeroom. Looks zippy but doesn't get-up-and-go as well as a car of it's size should as a result of the CVT (see "Cons" category). It'll do...until I can get my Ramcharger.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good to/from car, can hold TONS of groceries, especially with the fold-down seat.  Got a 10-speed in it once.

Cons: HATE HATE HATE the CVT!!!  When I step on the pedal I want to MOVE!

I Like It And Would Like To Upgrade To An Srt-4 — For a family vehicle this sports wagon has a lot a pep to it. for its size it has very good acceleration(except on Max AC output) especially from 60-80. the design is pretty good except the seem to develop a loud fuel injector tap around 50-60k. and i dread taking it half apart when i need an alternator. one of my favorite features is the drink cooler in the glove box, as long as the a/c is on it is working it may not make a warm drink cold but it will keep a cold one icy for a few hours

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Attractive looking family car

Cons: Larger blind spots

Ex-caliber — This is has all the good features of a caliber, but performs nothing like a normal one. The second the turbo spools up, you just take off like a jet. Smooth acceleration, and there is a lot of acceleration! Good times, very reliable, good on gas (30mpg including "spirited" driving), household receptacle, loads of storage space in the hatchback, not to mention the hood scoops, agressive body kit, 3" exhaust, 19" rims, sport leather bucket seats. The 6-speed manual transmission, and 300hp engine helps too :) Overall, the best car I've ever owned!

Pros: Turbo Power :) 0-60 in 5.5 sec

Cons: not much

Great Value With The Otional Extras You're Looking For. — Besides losing a letter on my emblem and some slow acceleration at times, it's right on the Money. With all the extras for this SE Trim it has all I need. Anything from the Chill zone or to the sliding center council. Also illuminated Cup Holders, it has my eye on it to keep. Chrysler really made this a good range vehicle for the youth and then some. •Performance - Acceleration-Pretty good for 4 Cylinders, braking, handling •Build Quality - The construction gives it one of the best ratings -keeps it strong thanks to anti-lock brakes. For safety with plenty of airbags for everyone. Besides the "I" falling off the Word of the Caliber, no problems yet to report. •Appearance - As the saying follows, "It's anything but cute. •Cost of Ownership - Average costs. (Oil Changes and Tire rotations.) •Fun Factor - Great hatchback to get you to where you need with extras to entertain you and your friends and/or your family.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you're looking for a great mileage vehicle for both to get to work and road trips with plenty of extras, check out what these cars have to offer.

Cons: Besides plastics for a signature of the inside, I've got nothing. Owning one of these at 20 years old leaves me nothing to complain about.
