Overall:

I bought this car new for $23,000, and expected it to be a good value, but it was not. The heat seat stopped working after a few years. When it rained, the passenger floor was always wet. The bumpers crack if you slightly bump into something. If you put the back windows down, the wind noise in the front seat area is not bearable.There is no back-up camera, or gps.

Great everything I was looking for and more. Great value for all that comes with the vehicle. Nothing tat I can see. One thing I realize with Jeep products, you really cant compare it to other models.

It"s A Jeep Thing — Went from a GMC ENVOY XL to this with not as many options. it was a shock in the size department but it is my first new car. It how ever my 3rd jeep and have always loved how they handle in upstate New York

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: it's a jeep!!! Handles great in the snow

Cons: Just too small when going to a single car for the family

Fun, Rugged, Yet Practical — I bought this car a week ago with only 15 miles on it. I'm looking forward to putting 100K or more on it! It will be perfect for road trips and hauling stuff around town. I love the unique Onyx Green color!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, great color.

Cons: I miss my bluetooth and auto-up windows.

Power Ranked 2012 Dodge Caliber SE FWD better.
"Caliber felt like a lighter vehicle that was easier for the small 4-cylinder engine to handle."
Family Car Ranked 2012 Dodge Caliber SE FWD better.
"Overall, my Caliber was a very honest, very reliable, very economical, and very unpretentious vehicle. It never left me wishing I had FWD under regular driving conditions and, on the few occasions I drove it on unpaved roads or other mild off-road conditions it performed capably. Even though it was the base model it met every need I had for a durable, comfortable, economical daily driver."
