2007 Dodge Caliber Wagon R/T 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I replaced my worn out Aurora with 197+ thousand miles on it at the end of Feb 2012. I purchased a used Dodge Caliber 2007 with 74,221 miles on it. It now has 75,690 miles on it. I guess the previous owner left out the little bit of information where the back & front passenger interior side floor leaks , and not just a little, inches worth. Then it takes forever to get it to dry and then it starts to stink to high heaven. I have been trying to find someone who will guide me to the spot that causes this leak so it won't cost me a small fortune to get it fixed. I also have discovered several other problems as well.


Favorite Features

It's comfortable, gets good gas mileage and has lots of room.


Suggested Improvements

Hopefully by now Chrysler has fixed the leaking issues, and the issue with the lights, blinkers and front & rear windshield wipers not working at the same time. The crazy solution on one forum for the lights, blinkers, wipers not working is to discconect the battery for an hour and then reconnect the battery, this worked like a charm.

Review

The transmission on my 2007 Caliber (90,000 miles)had a bad transmission solenoid - I research repair with transmission shops and dealers and found out that Dodge Chrysler does not provide the repair shops or the dealers with parts, except for a "factory rebuilt" transmission for $3,800.00. It's take it or push it off of our lot... this should have been an $800 repair or a rebulit transmission for approx $1,700 at worst. The dealer "Tempe Dodge, AZ did a sloppy job and it had to go back for another 2 days, for them to figure out where they went wrong...After owning Dodges for 28 years, this will be the last Dodge we will ever own...


Favorite Features

Sporty looks - good power on take-off


Suggested Improvements

Interior is mediocre at best. Replace Gadgets for useable features. Provide better warranties and quality components and parts to repair shops, instead of robbing car owners with factory available parts only at huge markups

Review

I love this car - fun to drive, great fuel economy, and I can even fit my 9 ft surf board in it. However - it's expensive to maintain. I just hit the 60,000 mile mark and because the Caliber has a variable transmission it takes, "a special kind of transmission fluid" and has to be done at the dealership. So the 60,000 service is going to cost over $650. I also just replaced the tires and since the Caliber has an odd tire size (lower profile) there are only a few tire manufactures who make that size and I spent over $900 on new tires. I do plan to keep the car for awhile - I just wasn't expecting such large chunks of money going out for routine maintenance on non-luxury vehicle.


Favorite Features

Fun to drive, hatchback allows for large items to be carted around, great fuel economy, comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

should not be so expensive to maintain.

Review

I bought this car in May of '06 for my wife and she loves it. The only issue we have had with the car is we had to replace the bushings for a squeak. I do wish the fuel mileage was better but it is better than my P.T. I did have to replace the tires early (25,000) but that was due to the dealership over inflating. The car runs and drive great and wife won't let me take her out of it.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage, rear gate weighs a ton.

Review

I have had my car for a year now and I am wondering why it fishtails when the car hits a dip or uneven payment? Is anyone else having this problem and how did you fix it. I have read the other reviews and it sounds like a lot of tire rods and arms have had to replaced. I think I need to have mine checked. I also have had to change tires since buying my car. I keep the scheduled maintenance. After reading reviews am worried about trade-in offers. I think I want to trade mine in. It scares me being so fishy. It makes me wonder what else is going on under the car with suspension.


Favorite Features

Body style, inside roominess.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the fishtailing.

Review

I bought the RT model in spring 2007. For the first 7 months, I could not have enough driving time with my car, it was great! lots of fun. But after 8 months, the 2 front shocks needed replacement. I couldn't believe it. Lucky, they where under warranty. I had them changed. Almost a year later, they needed changing again!! Then, afte the warranty ran out, the 2 front tables where finished, $300.00 each just for the parts! All this changed and know I think there is a rack and pinion problem, because it stills makes awful noises and one front shock is, for the 3rd time in need of replacement. I wish I could bring it back to the dealership and leave it there!! it's everything but economic...


Suggested Improvements

the hole front end!! suspension, and all the joints. How come the orientals can make a front ends that will last ten years but dodge cannot make them last 1 year?

Review

I bought this car mainly for the AWD, I live in Maine. I have had no problems except tires last about 25000 mi. I'm on my third set with 62000 on car. Love the CVT w/AutoStick. Summer 30mpg, winter 23mpg Love the roar of the exhaust, handling, brakes, and of course, the 485 watt stereo. I'm 52, drive 40mi. one way to work.I wish the seat fabric would clean easier.


Favorite Features

AWD stereo ChillZone CVT/AutoStick Looks


Suggested Improvements

A little less road noise

Review

I love my 07 Caliber but the tires that came on the car are awful and seem to be very noisy. I have been rotating them every 5000 miles when i get the oil changed and they are getting worse. I took it back to the dealer after 3000 miles to have the front end looked at and all checked out fine. It didnt need an alignment and all lubricants were fine also. My friend got an S/T model after i bought mine and raved how wonderful my car was. She has also had the same problems.


Favorite Features

Interior room is great. Sound system and 6 CD changer is awesome. Lighted cupholders help at night. Pick up on this little car is great.


Suggested Improvements

Better tires, blind spots in both the front and back. Interior color is hard to keep clean on roof and around the doors though. Alot of outside noise.
