2007 Dodge Caliber SXT 2.0L from North America
Excellent Winter car
Dealer corrected previous issues:
- wind noise attributed to vent visor.
- Disfomed cushion -driver seat.
(Dealership is outstanding -Davidson)
Car is an excellent winter car. We had a snow storm in Toronto, Ontario recently. The car plowed through the snow with ease and comfort. The car does not fish tail too much and feels safe in icy conditions. Caliber is an entry level car, but seems to hold its own in adverse conditions.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hey, I live in Toronto to!
My dads planning on trading in his 04 Chevrolet impala for a caliber. and from your comments I can see very positive things, especially with here in Toronto being a very cold place with long winters.

Kingston ON. Caliber is a good car, especially for the small amount of money. I don't know how they made it so solid on the highway. Have not driven in snow yet, but it is just great in the rain.
Looking forward too many long years of service. Used to swear by Honda for 25 years, but this car is too much of a bargain to pass up. And, Honda is a trifle too much.

The Caliber is plagued with far too many problems. I've done research on this car, and found that it's overwhelmingly hated by most people. I live in Edmonton, Alberta. It gets bitterly cold here, and we get lots of snow here, too. I couldn't get my Toyota Echo off of our street for six days after a recent heavy snowfall.
I don't see how the Caliber could be better in extreme winter conditions, unless it has all wheel drive. That option was dropped over a year ago. Practically all cars got stuck. The only vehicles that plowed through were large pickups. I'm sure they had four wheel drive.
