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 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 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."

Mediocre, But A Practical Alternative For A Family Car If You Live In A Place With Infamous Roads By Pedro

Miserable visibility, rear, sides and pillars. The gearbox has long marches, which, combined with the puny engine (a underpowered 2.4 litre), and its huge weight makes it sluggish and noisy. Very wi... Read More
