2007 Dodge Caliber SXT 2.0L from North America
I love my Caliber
The front power locks went out.
Replaced under warranty.
I love my Caliber.
It handles very good.
I love the way it looks like a small SUV, but with small car mileage.
The interior is in need of an update, and Chrysler is in the process of fixing the interior issues.
I would buy another Dodge next time.
The craftsmanship is very good on the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I test drove several Calibers in late 2006 and really liked them. I was a little concerned about the CVT belt not holding up, but apparently that has not been an issue. I decided to wait until the summer of 2007 to buy another car, and at that time I found out that Dodge had dropped the beautiful yellow color choice, and since all the others were dull and boring, I bought another brand. I don't know why auto makers are going to such blah and uninspired colors.
To the above commentor. Yes, the yellow was very popular & many websiters stated they were highly disappointed with the removal of the yellow. Think Caliber lost hundreds, if not thousands of sales by dropping the yellow. My Caliber is wonderful, but I didn't end up with my color choice & Dodge screwed up lots of marketing details. Dodge boldness is pretty timid.
Dodge's trademark color used to be the brilliant red. I owned a 2001 Dakota in that color. Since then they have become very staid and stodgy, even in their sporty cars. They are like imports, just bland and colorless, even though they do offer a few exciting cars (such as the Caliber SRT). I buy based primarily on a car's looks, as I have to look at it as long as I own it. Chrysler just doesn't interest me anymore, although they do build extremely reliable vehicles.
