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

Review

I have now had the displeasure of driving the Caliber. This is not a bad car compared to garbage made in the 1980ís, but is far inferior to a lot of hatches on the market. This car drives like a brick. If you get a good deal, then I could see this being a decent commuter car if you only drive on the highway. If you like to drive, find something else. My personal affordable favorite hatches are the Hyundai Elantra Touring and the Mazda 3. This car is not in either of these carís league.

Best Features

Higher seating position on the road. Low cabin noise and decent suspension.

Worst Features

Poor acceleration. Transmission shifts roughly. Gas mileage is subpar. Very boisterous, whiney engine if you push it. Ugly car. Lots of body roll in cornering. Poor handling.
