2007 Dodge Caliber SXT 1.8 litre from North America
A lot of car for the money, feature rich and uber convenient
Nothing so far.
I got this car for $50 per week lease 18 months ago.
It's been fantastic; 6 trips, 5hrs + in length. The car is quiet and solid on the highway at 120km's per hour, the seat adjustments suit my 6'2 height, the AC blows cold enough to give me a headache if I set it too low, the gas mileage on the highway has been averaging 7 litres for each 100km's, and in the city I'm getting about 10 litres.
The engine is weak power wise, and that is my only complaint, but then again I didn't expect much from the base 1.8 litre anyway, so I got what I was expecting.
The car is solid on the highway, surprisingly so to be honest, but there is body roll when cornering, the brakes are fantastic - 4 wheel discs and solid.
The base stereo is fine.
The interior plastic looks cheap, but then again for the price I got the car for, I got what I wanted.
I can't say enough good about the chill zone for longer trips, it works great and there is more storage than I thought possible, given the size of the car once the seats are put down.
I really like the car, I may be getting a newer one, not sure, or may move up to a Challenger.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
