Dodge Caliber (06-09)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Not sure, probably just that I want something different, not boring.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
No negativity so far, as it does everything it should. It's practical enough for 5 and performs well enough.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Possibly, if I was spending on the same budget. It's more interesting than a Golf or Focus, has better spec and better speakers, as well as a bigger boot. Seems to be a win win. Ignore reviews by the biased as its not tha bad car in reality.

What are you likely to buy next?
Hopefully I'll manage a 300C one day...

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's better to drive than the PT Cruiser I had before, as there's less body roll, but it could be better. 0-60 is pretty good, and torque is decent too. The 6 speed diesel seems to do everything I need and more. There's plastic-a-plenty inside but it's nothing more than your typical Golf or Vauxhall.

What's it like to park?
Easy. Rear visibility is ok, but the rear bumper bows outwards, so if you're not great at driving, parking sensors might be useful. Side mirrors are huge so provide great visibility both when parking and when driving.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?

What's most practical about your car?
Decent amount of room inside with a big boot. Lots of space in glove boxes, and has a fridge.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
6 CD changer is useful, as are heated seats and electric folding mirrors. Cruise control can be good if the motorway isn't too busy.
