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


First, the car is a total slug. Makes alot of noise and goes no where. If you're merging onto the highway, PLAN AHEAD. If there is a vehicle coming, let it go by to give you a LONG launch pad...
The auto trans is the worst unit I have seen. It's variable = junk.
Finally- the antifreeze problem. When I left the dealership, the car overheated 5 minutes down the road. The radiator was only a 1/4 full!!!! After that, I would have to fill it every week...No puddles under the car, no obvious leaks, clean oil.. So, where did the fluid go?!?!
In closing, with exception of the gas mileage, this was the biggest auto purchase MISTAKE I have made!!!!
