I shopped for about three months for a vehicle that was economical and met a certain specific criteria along with the sense of feeling proud to drive as a middle aged male. I do get a lot of unsolicited positive comments which is nice. This vehicle has a lot of features for the money. It did have some strong rebates which others did not, so that was a key deciding factor. I'm pleased so far with the car and it has a strong warranty. It does have a little more road noise than I'm use to hearing on the highway, but I guess I shouldn't be on my cell phone any how. Handles well, power is good for 4-cyl, plenty of room for 4-5 adult passengers, quality of interior components and trim are good. One of my favorite characteristics of this vehicle is that it has about twice the ground clearance as the average car but still hugs the road. This is nice if you have to go off paved roads, such as event parking in fields - which I do frequently. I'm not sure if this is considered a crossover vehicle, but it should if it's not. This is my first Dodge, and so far I'm pleased.

While the Dodge Caliber was not my first choice for a new vehicle, the more I drive it the happier I am. It has a comfortable ride, roomy interior and good features. My only real problem with it so far is that the engine sounds like it has a hard time catching up when accelerating. That said, it has plenty of power on the highway. The interior finishes are not the top of the line but they are an improvement on earlier models. My longest trip so far has been about an hour, so I am looking forward to my upcoming 7 hour drive to see how she goes.

I bought this car over 6 months ago and I absolutely love it! The car is great on gas, especially when I have to drive to school in PA. It is extremely roomy, comfortable and reliable. Back in March I got cut off and hit a guardrail on the parkway, bounced across 3 lanes or traffic, and thanks to this car I was able to walk away from the accident with no injuries. For the price you pay you get a great car! If youre looking for a car thats safe, reliable and great of gas. this car is a great choice.

Fun to Drive

by from Orange Park, FL on March 28, 2017

Great commuter car that looks and feels sporty, with plenty of "bells and whistles." Lots of room without being bulky, a breeze to handle. Doesn't ride like a luxury mobile, but plenty comfortable

A car that I've actually enjoyed owning

by from Prescott, AZ on May 14, 2017

This is by far my most favorite car that I've ever owned, I prefer pickup trucks and cars have just not done anything for me in the past.

I bought this car after owning a Ford Focus and a Dodge Durango. It is not the fastest car in the world but its great for travling. 29-32 is what the car is recommanded to get for gas milage and I have been able hit 36-38 at times during my trips. It seems to have much more room then my 2008 Ford focus. I am over 6 feet tall and I can actualy put a car seat behind me unlike the focus. Now I am not a sporty type guy. I like my car to get me to point A to point B comfterably and at a respectable price. This does both. I drive from Mo, to MN (8 hrs) 1-2 times a month and I enjoy the trip greatly. So if your looking on buying a brand new car and not trying to spend alot this is a car to consider.
