08 caliber sxt 1.8L lemon
by DodgeTheDodge from Barrie, On
January 3, 2019
I bought it used with 55,000km. at 65,000kms it needed $2000 non warranty work and $1500 warranty work. (intake manifold). every year the suspension needed to be replaced, who knew sitting on the 401 would be so rough on it. out of the 5 years I have owned it, it would spend at least 1.5 years sitting in the shop. I have put close to $8000 into and it needs about another $3000, does not even have 200,000kms on it yet. car has no pep. I have to shift the 3rd to pass someone. I should be able to use the car pool lane from the amount of water that sits on the floor in the back seat after it rains. vent dial quick working, so no hot air on the windshield to get the ice off from the inside. clutter dash lights quit working right after the warranty even though it started before yet the dealer ship couldn't see the problem. electrical issues all over. would not start, had to take off the front end, tire and fender of the car to access the relay that quit working and the computer would not say there was a problem with that relay. nothing but headaches with this lemon. being short I bash my knees a lot into the sheering column plastic. its in the name, DODGE it.
Bought a car online and when I arrived it was as described, freshly cleaned and ready to go.
In and out within an hour.
Thank you Sheri !
Known Front End and Transmission Problems
by Yujing from Forest City, PA
November 19, 2018
We have had this car for 3 years and every year the front end parts need to be replaced, just like our friends who have the same year and model car. This car is known to have front end problems. Also the transmission overheats in the summer on Long trips that are more than 45 minutes drive time. while sitting on the side of the road waiting for a tow I look through the manual and it confirms that you will have to pull over and let your transmission cool on hot days before you can continue on your journey. This car is a beer can on wheels and I would not recommend this car to anyone. I'm not angry about it because it is my own fault for not researching the vehicle before purchasing.
We recently purchased a 2016 XC 60 from Suburban Volvo and Jon Smith who handled our sale was a consummate professional . He covered all aspects of the sale and we were more than pleased with the entire process. We highly recommend Jon in the sales department. Go and pay him a visit if you want a great deal and things handled professionally and hassle free. Dan & Connie Krueger.
problem after 100000 miles

I am trying to get rid of this vehicle right now. It was good up to the problem. Not starting, shutting off on the highway.
I found a 2016 F-150 at this dealership here on cars.com for an incredible deal! Called them up and talked with Omar. Guy was super nice and was very upfront with the trucks history and was very impressionable. If I am ever in need of another car I’m definitely going back!

This car is all about power. Its fun to see how surprised other people are when they see this car accelerates but it also handles very well but watch out for the toque steer.
I bought a pre-owned vehicle from this dealership. The pre-owned sales manager, Mark Lange, absolutely amazed with his willingness to go above and beyond and help get you the car you really want. He did all the extras that make you feel really good about a deal. I love my new to me car but love that the first time I bought from a dealership, my preconceived notions of salesman and treatment were dashed. Mark is really knowledgeable and will do whatever is in his power to make what YOU want happen for you. Steve Eby is also exceptional, he did everything he had in his power to do as well! Guy, the finance manager for that section was also very helpful. Thank you Mark!!!
Our Dodge Calibar
by TGSandy from Fort Lupton Co
April 24, 2018
The Calibar is a nice little car that gets us where we want to go. It gets fair gas millage but sometimes doesn't have the size or power that we would like to have.
It was the most unreliable of piece of transportation ever. I bought it used but almost really good condition (or so the dealership said). Then after after 2.5 years, everything started to break down: breaks, struts, control arms, battery, and ultimately the transmission. It cost me $5k to fix it like new yet it continued to leave me stranded on the roads. Everytime it had to towed to a shop, there was a new problem. None of the warranties that I had could help me since new issues arose every time. Do not recommend this car at all. Plus it's really tight inside, definitely not a good fit for road trips.
It does EVERYTHING so well, but no get up and go and when you live near a big city and have to get on the highway you have to have the get up and go! Honestly the only reason I didn't purchase another (I moved far enough away to where I sold my car and flew). It's reliable and handles the excessive miles very well (bought at 74,000 miles, sold at 150,000 miles still running perfect). It can also take a hit I was rear-ended by two cars simultaneously, I was stopped and they both tried to cut someone off and hit my car, my caliber still looked perfect and ran amazing!
answered right away, gave me a lot of details before i had to make the trip up there to make sure i didn't waste my time. so many other dealers wanted a huge down payment, champs was able to do 500 down for me n monthly payment only like $247. love my car n very happy thank u again

I got this car for my daughter and for the price and reliability it works for all of us. Besides regular wear it is a great little car.
Ours is a base model but gets the job done for our small family. The real issue I have is the overall space inside leaves little in the front or second row for leg room. Its been reliable though and maintenance hasn't been an issue.
I've been to Carite in New Baltimore 3 times for service. The employees there are all so kind. Today I delt with Jim and Tim in service. They were fantastic. I feel that they are very honest. That is where I will always bring my vehicles. Thank you!

Meets expectations, very reliable. Fuel performance is great. I am confident to drive the car nationwide. It’s a very inexpensive car and gets the job done!
Brian A. The general manager was so helpful with my lease. I will be a life long customer! Thank you!
Best purchase-great price-super car
by LisaM from Spokane, WA

This is the first car I have driven since college that just "gets up and goes!" It handles so well and is front wheel drive. I had been looking for one with low miles since I rented one a few years ago and I was thrilled to find one. This is a great little car and is safe and reliable; yet fun and sporty! Love it.
We worked with Sean Turner, and he was excellent. Very attentive and careful to make sure I was getting everything I wanted. I was a first time buyer and very nervous, but he made the process very smooth and efficient. Will definitely recommend to others in the future, and will continue to use this dealership. Very happy with the customer service!
Nice and reliable
