2009 Dodge Caliber SE 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


UGH! I rented this car on a trip recently and chose it because I love small hatchbacks; I drive a 2008 VW Rabbit at home. My college-age son, who couldn't care less about cars, immediately noticed the poor quality interior compared to our Rabbit. "Is this an American car?" he asked - and I doubt he would not say that about a newer Ford. Driving this thing is not pleasurable after driving German cars, either. It's just adequately powered, and the steering is not responsive at all. The car gets points for exterior styling, and I assume it's fairly reliable, but if you're looking for a small hatch, check out the Mazda3, new Golfs, Honda Fit, etc. before saddling yourself with this blah-burger

Best Features

Exterior styling is very nice. Ever since the model came out I've liked the looks of it.

Worst Features

Improve cabin materials. They are seriously shoddy compared to other vehicles in this class which I drove when shopping for a small hatchback. Needs more power. Seating very awkward/uncomfortable.
