2007 Dodge Caliber Problems
The front struts may wear prematurely, resulting in poor handling and/or a rough ride. Struts may also be diagnosed as leading. When replacing front struts on 2007 - 2009 vehicles, the jounce bumper should be inspected. If it is found to be a one-piece black rubber part, it should be replaced with a newly designed jounce bumber end dust shield.
A no crank or no start condition may be the result of a theft system fault. Our technicians tell us that replacing the wireless control module should correct this issue.
The AC compressor may be damaged during cold weather conditions due to refrigerant "slugging." Our technicians tell us that the repair involves replacing the AC compressor and the condenser.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The accelerator pedal bearing pockets may be oversized. As a result, the pivot bushings may become dialoged, causing the accelerator to bind or stick. If the accelerator were to stick, the "smart" braking system will overcome the stuck accelerator under certain conditions. Dealers will replace the affected accelerator pedals to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on June 29, 2010. The Chrysler recall number is K11.

2007 Dodge Caliber Reviews
This has been the best car for my daughter. I bought it used in 2008 (its a 2007 model), as it was a rental car. It now has almost 150K miles on it, we've only had to replace the spark plugs and front brakes and rotors on it just this past year, and this year we are currently replacing the front struts and back shocks. This car has taken care of my daughter through highschool and now school/work. She drives the hell out of it and it has even taken her across country twice to various places in the U.S. on week long driving expeditions. I'm currently looking for another one for my 16 year old daughter. It is a front-wheel drive car, however it manuvers in the snow rather well. We put on Dodge magnum stock wheels and tires to raise it up off the ground a few inches (my stock wheels that came on my magnum bolted right on to the Caliber). A GREAT CAR!
I bought my 2007 Dodge Caliber when it was brand new in March, 2007. It is the perfect size for me and what I use it for - going to work and golfing. The only problm that I had with it was the Tire Presure Monitoring system acted up on me a couple of years ago. I had to have the battery disconnect at about that time and when it was reconnected the problem went away and has not come back (3 years ago). I have just about 100,00 miles on it, had the battery replaced once, 1 new set of tires - that's it, except for the usual oil changes, which I do about every 4 months or so - well past the requested 3,000 miles. The only other issue I have ios that occasionally the CVT drive kind of slips, but I have never repalced the transmission fuid, either. All in all, this is the best car I have ever owned from a usage perspective. I've had quieter cars (Cadillacs) and smoother riding cars, but I love driving this car. I drive it around 55 mph on the jhighways, usually, but at times run it up to 75 or 80, when the need arises. It gets good gas mileage (about 30 - 33 at 55 mph).
I am not really impressed with this car and i do regret buying it. I should have stuck with my grand ams. I miss my grand am. Would still have it, if it hadnt caught fire on me.
The interior is sheap (plastic all over)
