2009 Dodge Caliber R/T 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Purchased a brand new R/T almost 6 months ago with leather package, sunroof, 6CD changer with 9 speakers(2 of which drop down from hatch door) and a year of sirius and a chrome package for under $20k. Getting ~28mpg. I did look at many other hatchbacks, and there are a few better out there, but you will pay a premium for a "better" new one than this. And buying new, having a LIFETIME powertain warranty, come one, VALUE. Alot of consumers don't seem to quite realize what a lifetime powertrain warranty means for value, if you take care of everything else, you can drive this for decades. I have seen the touchscreen in action for the stereo with bluetooth, and plan on upgrading to that in time.

Favorite Features

Lifetime Warrenty! Stereo System. Completely adjustable height and lumbar seating. Great safety rankings. Lots of storage room, quick. The metallic paint that shines brightly even when filthy, and when cleaned and chrome shined, you sometimes have to look away (I have black). Drink Storage.

Suggested Improvements

Acceleration between 0-40. System readout, autodim mirror, and Uconnect bluetooth should be a cheaper add-on. An AWD/FWD on the fly option like other hatches. Adjustable (not just fold down) backseating.
