Caliber Srt-4 — Wicked accleration, braking, handles well but has wicked torque steer. An awesome, fun car to drive that definitely hauls. With 285hp stock, and awesome things like a boost gauge, 1/4 mile timer, and G-Force gauge, it's definitely a fun car yet functional as a daily driver. Costs about $40 to fill with supreme, and goes roughly 500km on a tank even if you don't drive it too nicely... tons of room inside, well set up with super comfortable racing style seats. Overall, I give this car a 9.5 outta 10!! Comes with a pretty decent sound system built in if you get the kicker system too...

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

Pros: Great Power, awesome brakes, great handling, fun to drive.

Cons: Body Kit is cheap, torque steer.

Great Deal For The Price — great car financially. good gas mileage, good braking. only problem i have had with the car is the low tire gauge. it broke and constantly said the tire was low, even though it wasnt. also, getting the change oil light even after changes, was difficult to turn off. fun to drive, and has a little bit of balls to get up to speed.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cheap and fun

Cons: not a whole lot to add parts wise.

Fell In Love With This Car As A Rental On Vacation... Now I'm On Vacation Every Day! — I used to drive an SUV... Wanted better milage with the same elevated seating. The Caliber filled the bill. Never would have paid over 20K for a car... The Caliber's price sealed the deal. I love the CVT tranny... 4 bangers tend to sound "buzzy" winding through the gears... Cali with CVT is smooth as silk. No "gear hunting" with the cruise control on going up hills.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I sit around 6 inches higher than I would in others in its class

Cons: wicked "lane change" blind spot.  A stick-on convex fixed this.

Caliber, Fun Toys, Terrible Transmission — The performance of the Caliber was odd at best. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) was an absolute nightmare! If you are the type that likes to actually drive their car then the constant sound of the same RPM level will kill you, but if you want a smooth running car that basically drives you, then this is your car. The extras on the car were definitely nice. I averaged between 20 and 21 MPG while driving the car. It was not overly fun to drive.

Pros: The toys and extras

Cons: gas mileage, CVT transmission

Amazing Bang For The Buck — Brilliant black paint is stunning. Interior is stylish, very roomy and exceedingly comfortable.2.0 engine is powerful and smooth. Ride is tight and quiet. My only complaint is visibility out of rear side windows is poor, but I just added small, convex mirrors to the door mirrors and solved that issue. 35mpg at 80mph. Awesome! I absolutely love this little car! Would not change anything.

Pros: mileage,ride,power

Cons: slight visibility issue

Love The Caliber — 50 MPG. It was cheaper to buy new than used. Drives nice, it's comfortable, and a 5 speed. It is surprisingly big. Problem with backing up though,when looking through the rear window it looks like whatever is behind you are right on top of it, but really is not so close.

Pros: comfy interior, handles nice.

Cons: Shifter in odd spot takes getting used to,   1.8L seems under powered for its size.
