My caliber is junk with wheels, the last Dodge I will ever buy.
Talked to 6 other Caliber owners; all have same kinds of problems.
To start sounds it like a k car in the morning; knocking + tap tap. I'm not talking about fuel injection noise.
Manuel transmission was replaced because of a knock in the bell housing area. My new trans is doing the same thing.
I go on long trips, and when engine warms about half, it taps taps like it has broken pieces in there when going up hills.
My head lights dim, and the engine tries to stall when idling. I had it at two different dealers; they fixed power control module and transmission. One service manger said I hear those noises, but we can't do any more till more coeds come up.
Lemon law won me $2.500 dollars too. She said Chrysler is the worst to deal with; you're lucky to get that.
Changed oil four times with mobil synthetic oil. Is there anybody out there that can help me fix these problems? I can't trade it in as I'm upside down.
