I love my Caliber
I have a 2011 Dodge Caliber express, i bought it bran new in October of 2011. So where to start, I know, I requested that My new Dodge Caliber have a 5 Speed Stick!! NOT an AUTOMATIC!!!! I had to wait a week for them to get one as the closes stick was 1000 miles away at another dealer. So as you read this PLEASE keep that in mind. I have read on a lot of reviews that this car has a lot of blind spot, For me the caliber has no blind spots, My windows are Tinted pitch Black 2% and i tow stuff all the time and back them up with no Problems, if you know how to use your side mirrors like you should you don't even have to turn around to back up, so no problem. My stock rear view mirror is in the middle of the car so the head rest don't bother the view. THE QUALITY: The Quality of the whole car is a 8.5 out of 10. Almost 2 years later and i have had no problems with the caliber at all. The seats are comfy and roomy, we sit 5 in ours just fine all the time. THE PERFORMANCE: Performance is really good, this is not a sports car, but when you need it and down shift and step on it it does good. We have a 16 foot open bow water ski boat that we take to the lake every weekend end 25 miles one way from home and we have had no problems towing (no fish tailing) with it (with 5 people and gear in the car at the same time). i also have a 14 foot utility trailer that we use loaded full for camping all over the states of Washington and Oregon. THE TIRES: The stock tires suck as the car is kinda all over the road, but if you put some nice performance tires on the car it handles awesome. DRIVERS LESSON: My son learned to drive and took his test at 17 no problem in this car. I don't worry when he is driving, i know he will be safe in a well built car. To sum things up, i love the car, Great family car great towing and you still get 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. I would RECOMMEND this Car.
Worse Car I've Driven in Years
This car has so many blind spots, the "chopped top" look obviously compromises safety. The rear hatch small windows tend to block views. The front end rounds over so much that it is hard to guage distance for parking. The head rests in the up position can also block views. There is no quality in the construction of this vehicle, welcome to the new millenium of low quality technology and construction. Performance wise, forget it. Not only do you experience the sluggish acceleration 4 cylinder cars tended to have years ago, the rear will fishtail if you must accelerate quickly, so hopefully you won't have to get the hell out of Dodge because you can put your safety at risk while trying to avoid another accident, especially in wet conditions. I would NEVER recommend this car for a new driver (especially teenagers) or an area with a lot of precipitation.
