As a single woman I wanted a car that would have capacity for storage and look more "mature and stylish" than what I was driving before which was an old Volvo. I love the look of the caliber. I once confused it with a Lexus in a parking lot. I think that is funny but says alot about the sleek styling.
In the Caliber the seat feels high so I feel like I'm riding above the windshield when driving, but the car itself is not too large like a mini-van or SUV. I have had to get used to using a very light touch on the petals because it only takes a little gas to rev it up.
2008 Dodge CaliberCandy - Huntington Beach, CA04/25/2010
I absolutely love my Dodge Caliber. I love the looks from all angles and it's gets GREAT gas mileage. I calculated it and I'm getting 24 mpg in the city. I'm taking it on a road trip this weekend and expect it to do even better. I wish the seats were a little more comfortable, especially the head rest. Other than that I like my car more and more each day. I'm finding new things about each day. (Mine didn't come with a manuel since it is used)I discovered that it has a temperature gage and also a light comes on when tire pressure is low. I've never had a car do that before. Overall, it was a great buy and I would recommend a Dodge Caliber to anyone.
After reading several other reviews, I wondered how I would like my car. So far, I've been pleased. I bought the 5 speed to avoid the transmission problems noted on the variable transmission models. I do miss automatic door locks some and cruise control just a little bit, but overall I'm happy. Oh, and it's not going to win you a race... not much get up and go, but suits me fine.
