"I bought this great little sporty looking car with plans to throw a yakima bike rack or equivalent Mopar part on top to be able to haul around my bikes and surfboards, however, it can't be done. Mopar isn't making a top rack for it and Yakima and Thule have deemed this car unmountable. The only way to carry something would be to have the hitch kit installed and get a hitch mounted bike rack.
Other than that, it's great!"
"I bought a 2008 Caliber about a month ago and I love it! It is awesome on gas mileage and so stylish. I went from a V8 Durango (which I also loved) but the gas was equivalent to the payment so I got the Caliber and I'm very pleased with it. The only complaint I have is the power of it but I went from a V8 to a 4-cyl so a big difference is expected but totally worth it!"
"This car has great style, and is an overall nice buy. You get a good car for your money, but the only downfall is the performance. I have the 2.0L, and from a take off, it goes 0-60 in like 5 minutes. (not that slow.. but slow!!)
I'm sure the SRT Model changes that, but for a family car, the 2.0L is perfect!"
"bought a used 2007 with low miles from a dealer with a carfax report ..The car has been great runs well and once you understand the cvt trans you can make the pickup of the car work for you ..around town the gas mpg has been great and tinting the windows on the silver car looks great and sporty"
"I just purchased my Caliber and I am in love... I live in Michigan where we get so much snow and it handles very well. I am also very empressed with all of the leg room and the wonderful gas milege that I get. I am about 5'11 and have two children 13yrs & 11yrs and it works perfect for us."
"I like the car alot, but, I am very displeased with the fact that I have the 07 R/T AWD version and paid about 22k for it. The problem is that I've had it less than 2 years and the trade in value is only 12k!!!. My wife has an 04 Mazda 3 which has much more power and the trade in on it is about the same if not more and its 3 years older and we paid 4k less for it. very disappointing. Other than the value its a great car and is fun to drive."
"I bought this car in November of 2006 and I love the handling and performance during the non winter months but living in northern Michigan I have found that having a Caliber without the AWD feature has been a struggle. The car is undrivable in extreme winter conditions and cannot even climb up a small incline without the RPMs spiking out of control and then having to reverse the car in order to park it in my garage. Other than that I really have no other complaints."
"i love my claiber, it's stylish, diffrent and really well priced for a teenager :]
plus i spend about $35 a week on gas.
which is amazing compaired to all the others around these parts.
i love this car.
although there are many tiny crevases that gets gunk in them too easily, but this is in every car.
:] :] :]"
"i was a little bummed to find cruise wasn't a standard feature when i purchased the car. Love how the seats all fold down for extra cargo room. It's a tight squeeze for the carseat. Overall great on gas and it's good looking too!"
