I love this car. The style is awesome. I used to drive our Isuzu Ascender, which my husband will drive now. I never thought I would go back to a car from an SUV. However, I don't think I have sacrificed anything by changing my mind on this. It's like a smaller muscle car, in appearance. It actually looks tough, and I don't feel like I'm in a little bubble on wheels, like my mom's Nissan Versa or my friend's Mini. I love the interior and all of the extras and the roomy interior. I'm tall with long legs and have more room behind the wheel than in my old SUV. I can't wait to drive it home today.
We traded in our Land Rover Discovery 2 which was so expensive anytime we had to fix or replace something. Unbelievable. Also, the thing was a gas-guzzler. People loved it, but my wallet didn't. The Caliber is giving me great gas mileage.
I guess acceleration from a complete stop is a tad slow, but I quickly forget about that once I'm going. It's fun to drive, low road noise, and easy to handle.
I just love this car.
