2008 Dodge Caliber SXT 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Bought this car new in '08. Love the look of it, but just found out at 44,000 miles that both front lower control arms are bad. Same thing happened to another couple 3 months ago when we were both at the dealership getting oil changes. Any one else having this problem? I was quoted over 800.00 for parts and labor...money I don't have, but car needs to be fixed asap I'm told. Thinking of trading...owned lots of cars and never had problems like this with such low mileage. Was told it was due to "Michigan roads" Beware.
Favorite Features
Sporty look, roomy inside.
Suggested Improvements
Use better parts. Perhaps make visibility better when changing lanes, seems to be many blind spots.

I have 2008 SXT. A loud clanking when driving on highway started after hit 40,000 miles. Took it in to be checked today after reading reviews about suspension problem and they tell me suspension is tight but suspect bushings. I asked the control arms to be checked but hard to say they really do what you ask. I have a bad feeling. And oxygen sensor just went out. I too have never had any problems this early when owning a car and I always keep regular maintenance on them.
