Good first car for new college student. AWD a plus for rainy days and light snow. Plenty of room for supplies, friends, and tailgates at college sporting events.
All in all, a very practical car with a hint of flair...won't embarrass a young driver.
2011 Dodge CaliberMelissa Olse - Las Vegas, NV07/18/2016
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.
