Caliber Of Its Own — one of the best cars I have ever had! If you want a ferrari this is not the car for you. More of a slow crusier type car, does have a bit of wind noise @ high speeds but other than that the only pain has been the CD player playing up. Service & purchase costs are excellent in the UK just gutted that Dodge can not produce enough & have lost interest in the UK market. Our loss! :-(

Pros: Looks & Function

Cons: CD Player & paint finish

Freaking Awesome. I Love My Puck. —

Great performance and quality, especially for a Chrysler/Mopar product. At two and a half years and almost 40k miles, the motor is still smooth and quiet, clutch is tight, A/C is ice cold and heater could scorch the sun. Nothing broken, worn off, sound system is still excellent, way better than most stock stereos. Seats, carpet, and all rubber and plastic have been durable and stain-resistant, when clean the interior looks brand new. Outside, too; I have the brilliant black pearl paint and it's still very glossy and deep, all chrome intact, no rubber seals worn or leaking, and I have a sunroof I open and close daily. Still getting over 30 mpg on the freeway, about 26 in town, I have the 1.8 liter four-cylinder engine and it's a little underpowered on steep, long inclines, but has plenty of get-up-and-go in traffic under normal conditions. Does great in the snow and ice, too. I get oil changes every 3,000 miles or so (whenever the sensor insists) and so far nothing has gone wrong at all (one drive-shaft issue at 3,000 miles, covered by warranty and fixed by my awesome dealership). I love this car more than I can say, handy cargo spaces (fits a full-size bike with back seat down!) and collapsible front seat, neat cooler built in the glove compartment, exterior is tough and pretty. I special ordered and paid $18,500 for this car and will have it paid off in December (3 year financing with no interest and a $2k down payment) and I will drive this Dodge until it will go no further. I love it, absolutely no complaints.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: FUN, hot, plenty of cargo space, excellent sound system, great gas mileage.

Cons: None.

Caliber Is Ok — Too expensive for what it is! Dints too easily and the tail lights mysteriously cracked. Gas hog! Handles fine, not the most fun car in the world, but it's safe for families. Could be more spacious, but like the 2/3 folding seats.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 6 disc CD changer

Cons: Boring interior

Srt-4 Life — Build Quality: Never been repaired! Car Comparisons: Thought about the cobalt SS and the Mazda Speed3 but they didnt compare! Performance: Well lets see topped out around 165. 0-60 in 5 seconds and handles like a dream! More About My Car: I LOVE This Car!

Whatever — Good idea, but not practical. Not possible to mix fun, reliable, practical, inexpensive, and convenient into one car. Should've bought a toy and a a daily driver. Fun car, but not for what I wanted to do. Things break a lot.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice seats

Cons: At dealer a lot

Thank You Sir May I Buy Another. — Fast for a 4 cylinder thanks to the turbo. It's like driving a really fast go cart. Handles very well in the corners and can stop on a dime thanks to the 14 in. rotors and Brembo brake system. It can kick alot of other cars asses even the V-8's and still get 30+ MPG on the highway.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's fast,fun and still economical.

Cons: Even though it's a hatchback it's something you wouldn't want to take the family in on a vacation/long drive.

Cons: Should get better gas milage, wish it had more tech features since I did not feel like paying 2500 more for them

My New Unit — Too much power (285 whp) for the front wheel drive setup. Gets a little scary when boost hits and you bury the tach while your all over the road. Bad wheel spin and wheelhop. Going to swap rims and see if it makes a difference. I really love the car overall. So much fun to drive. Will be tricky for winter driving though. Car is pretty bad on gas but any 300 hp vehicle wont be the greatest. Overall a very good investment. This car would give my 2004 GSX-R 600 sport bike a decent run for its money...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 300 HP and dead sexy

Cons: bad on gas and scary when wheelspin occurs..
