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.
The Dodge Caliber is a great value that combines quality and performance in one fun-to-drive package. It's easy to park in tight spots, gives my family the room it needs and is flexible enough to haul slightly larger cargo loads when needed. Reminds me a lot of my old Neon, which I loved, but the Caliber builds on the Neon's compact sportiness with greater comfort and flexibility.
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.
