I love my Caliber

2007 Dodge Caliber CaliberCrazy - Berwick, ME 11/13/2011

Within days after I bought my Caliber, I drove from Houston, TX to Berwick, ME. The car ran like a dream and was extremely comfortable for this journey. It got 29 miles per gallon and never gave me any problems on that trip. It's easy to park and I feel real comfortable driving this car. I've been moving my personal belongings out of storage and can't believe how much stuff I can fit in this car! It warms up quickly and drives really well on snow covered roads.

Amount of Car for Price Worth It

2008 Dodge Caliber Ben - Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 04/14/2010

For the amount of car you get the Dodge Caliber has one of the best values on the market. I love all of its little features like the cooler for drinks in the glove box, the aux adapter, the "poor mans navigation." It is a great little car my wife drives around and loves it. I would highly recommend this car if you are looking for something less expensive but has great quality and value.

2007 Dodge Caliber SXT

2007 Dodge Caliber TPARSONS - Illinois 05/29/2007

I traded in a Mustang GT to buy this car..........Mostly for economical reasons. I purchased it because it is an American made car, what ever that means anymore, and I wanted an econobox. I looked at all the Japanese models and really didn't like the looks of any of them. I have a black one and the little car is sharp for sure. The CVT technology takes some time to get used to, but if you have ever ridden a snowmobile, then you'll see what I mean. The best mileage I can get is almost 28 MPG. I have the 2.0L and would not buy the smaller engine because of the lack of power. The car could barely get out of it's own way. The car tracks great in the snow, and in the rain. There is louder road noise than I am used to, but the stereo makes that go away. I would not get the six CD changer because you lose the 1/4" male plug to use your IPOD. Great car, lots of space. Very comfy to drive, great ergonomics.

Dodge Caliber Overview

Marketed by Dodge between 2007 and 2012, the Dodge Caliber has singularly replaced the Neon as well as the Chrysler PT cruiser. The front-wheel drive, front-engine, five-door hatchback was one of 2006's most popular vehicles. In March 2006, it was sold as a crossover station wagon.

While discontinued, the Dodge Caliber is frequently replaced by the Dodge Dart, which carries similar features and capabilities. All used Dodge Calibers pack incredible spatiality while being accessible for families and solo drivers.

Dodge Caliber History

Debuted at the Geneva Motor Show's 2005 attendance, the Dodge Caliber's pre-production version revealed exciting changes from its initial concept. The Caliber was officially released in 2006 in the North American Auto Show, and on the market in April 2007.

The Dodge Caliber was manufactured and rolled out from the Belvidere Assembly plant, where its predecessors were created. One of Dodge's first modern vehicles hitting Asian and European markets, the Caliber became well-known in China.

The Caliber's tech history features several small revamps. The Caliber's 2010 unveiling revealed an eight-way power driver's seat addition, automatic climate control, and heated mirrors. The 1.8-liter engine was included too.

Between 2011 and 2012, the Dodge Caliber benefited from not just exterior touches like new paint schemes and 18-inch aluminum wheels, but a six-way power adjustable driver seat and Sirius traffic control.

How It Drives

While most consider the Caliber to be rugged in design, its small engine, high-power acceleration, and handling permit a smooth drive. Tricky terrain shouldn't be underestimated, however, as the Caliber's maneuverability may suffer in tight spaces.

From the 2007 release, the Dodge Caliber SXT trim is perhaps the smoothest drive, achieving a tight turning radius and stable handling. The optional 16-valve, 2.0-liter VVT drives well too, utilizing a 158-horsepower engine to accelerate quickly but safely.

The Caliber's box-like exterior may feel aggressive for some, particularly when paired with Dodge's signature crosshair grill and sharp liftgate outline. The Caliber, in most cases, handles closer to a crossover wagon than a crossover SUV.

Design & Performance

Performance-wise, the Caliber aligns with much of Dodge's style, precision, and power choices. It packs large wheels for its size and class, rolling on fifteen-inch steel installations - which are standard on the SE trim. The Dodge Caliber SXT, meanwhile, enhances durability with 17-inch aluminum wheels.

The Caliber continues the Neon's space-efficient and innovative body, offering a flip-down tailgate, integrated interior technology, and several trim levels. The base SE, SXT, and R/T became popular in 2010 because of their performance enhancements, engine upgrades, and wheel upgrades. Stability control certainly offers performance benefits, but it isn't offered in earlier SE editions. For high performance and a sleeker design, drivers are urged to seek out a Caliber model with a 159-hp, 2.0-liter engine, which is paired with the Caliber's variable transmission.

Powertrain & Engine

The Dodge Caliber is available in the following four-cylinder engines, which produce variable amounts of horsepower:

  • 1.8-liter with 148 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque
  • 2.0-liter with 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque
  • 2.4-liter with 172 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque

The small, medium, and large engines offer estimated city and highway fuel economies of 28-30 mpg, 26-30 mpg, and 23-26 mpg. While variable upon location, each fuel economy is relatively stable as a Caliber ages. Caliber engines are incredibly modern - even in 2007 versions. Utilizing an all-aluminum build, flow-control valves, and variable valve timing, each engine ensures clean combustion at all speeds.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

Despite the Caliber's ruggedness, it sits a little higher than the common compact car. Its rear end, particularly at the taillights, seems to be an adoption from the Chevrolet Malibu Maxx. Good and modern, the Caliber's body styling meshes with its interior in any year, which offers:

  • Two-tone color schemes
  • A plastic cargo floor
  • Illuminated cup holder rings
  • An MP3 player holder
  • A 60/40 split and folding backseat
  • MusicGate premium audio system with liftgate speakers

Overall, the Caliber's interior balances functionality with entertainment. While a little rough for some, it sports ample space.
