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


Review

Things went downhill after 60k. I can count on taking the car to the shop twice a year for fuel system problems. The engine is too heavy for the suspension, and the car is a money pit. Just walk away from this one.

Review

I bought my Caliber used in 2016 and it was a total lemon. The dealer was a complete scam artist. My car had no horn, bad brakes and struts, and stained ceilings and seats. I regret the decision to buy that car still to this day. My car was constantly in the shop. I put my car in the shop a day later from me buying it and it cost me $700 to get it out. Then I had to get the brakes changed which cost me $900 the first time and had to take it about 2 more times. I had to get the things that help the belt move changed and once when I was driving on the highway the front hood popped open. My A/C never worked fully plus it sucked up all the gas. My check engine light was on when i first bought it for a electrical problem no one could fix. My wires were wrapped in duct tape. My heater never worked so I froze during the winter. The only pro to this car was the trunk was spacious and the back seats let down.

Review

We bought this car new from a dealer in Maryland. My husband used it to commute long distances to work. When it hit 70K, we bought a new car and I used the Caliber for my work commute. We have had NO problems with this car. The car I had before was a Saab, and this Caliber ran so much better. We're getting ready to sell it now as we have 4 vehicles parked out front. I would have no apprehension about driving this another 50K OR more.

Review

This car is a dream lemon. If you love spending money; getting towed; frequently driving rentals and paying for them ... then this is the car for you. I've decided to get the car painted lemon yellow as dreamy blue is a misnomer.
