2011 Dodge Caliber Mainstreet 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I recently purchased a relatively new 2011 Dodge Caliber Mainstreet for $12,900 it had only 600 miles. I am relatively happy with ownig this car. However, I found that this car to be very slow, the 4cyl, 158 hp engine with the CVT transmisson is very weak. The engine lacks power for changing lanes and going up hills it makes long distance driving very difficult. Extremely poor gas mileage about 20- 24 mpg. Cheap interior and uncomfortable seats. Positive things are exterior styling and interior room. I would never buy this car at retail at $21,000. Howeve, if you can find one at a discounted price I would buy it. They are good commuter cars for providing basic transportation


Best Features

Exterior styling is very nice it looks better than most hatchbacks. Good amount of interior head and leg room. I am over 6 feet tall and I have no problems getting in and out of this vehicle. It has a nice amount of interior and cargo space for small car. If you can get a new one for about $13,000 you will have a car with a good amount of extras like automatic transmission, a nice music system, electric windows, etc.


Worst Features

The powertrain (the 2.0l 4cyl engine and CVT transmission) leaves alot to be desired. The car is very slow about 8.2 s 0-60 time. Because of the weakness of the engine, the car slows down going up any kind of elevation of the road. When driving at highway speeds the car wants to slow down, you have to constantly keep your foot on the accelerator just to keep the car moving along with traffic. The engine and transmission is loud and you hear the loud moaning of the engine/transmission constantly while driving. The interior seats are uncomfortable for long distance driving.

2011 Dodge Caliber Mainstreet 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


Review

This car was purchased in February 2011 and 3 month into owning the vehicle i notice rust, paint chips, and the rear window started getting a weird diamond pattern. Also, the car started to run rough.


Best Features

31mpg Appearance


Worst Features

Make the care feel a little more expensive and a better pain job.
