The car is decent sized if you are single and have no kids. However, it is not a grocery-getter, as it has very little room in the hatchback. It is a very noisy car, like they forgot to insulate it from road noise. The tires are cheap. It didn't come with daytime running lights or an alarm. The fuel tank is very small, and while It gets decent gas mileage, you have to refill the tank more often than I would like. It is simply functional to get you from point A to point N. Beyond daily driving, I don't recommend this car. I'm just disappointed. I won't buy another one.
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.
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.
