My year old Caliber has been at the dealership for a week. They finally discovered the leak is coming from the drainage tubes. This is after my dome light filled with water and front and back floors have been completely sopping wet. Is Dodge aware of this problem?
I had water on the front drivers side floors last year took it to Dealership they said it was the drain tubes for the sunroof (cost $185) Got it back then it had water in the back drivers side took it back 5 more times last year and we were so disgusted. After the 6th time we thought it was fixed they replaced the drain tubes. Now it is leaking again pools of water in the front and back going back to the dealership again this week. I think Chrysler should recall these cars and fix them for nothing. I am disgusted.
1 month old when rear floor soaked after heavy rain. Then front light fixture and headliner filled with water. Now sunroof has a short and opens when it feels like it! Had tubes cleared twice, light fixed, headliner cleaned. Going back for new wire harness for sun roof next week.
I am so sick of this car, I will drown in this car eventually, water pouring in on headliner sides, seats soaking wet, floor boards soaking wet, mold on headliner, very embarrassed in this car. What can we do? Brought this mess to dealer and had to pay 100.00 to have tubs cleaned out, then 2 months later dripping again, even worse. Want to get rid of car. What a lousy car.
Sunroof leak started first year of ownership. Multiple trips to dealer for cleaning of tubes. Quoted hundreds of dollars to "fix" the problem but we're aren't doing it. This is a serious design flaw. There needs to be a recall.
When it rains leaks on both sides, front interior light filled with water and water in front headlight and rear lights, floor wet. this only happens when it rains, I has to be a defect. I have heard so many people report the same problem.
Replaced my front struts and sway bars last month. Then had to tighten my driver side this month and buy new sway bar. Passenger side started squeaking so I thought it needed to be tightened. Thought that would fix it. But then my tie rod outer end needed to be replaced but the squeaking came back...... Help
Ongoing problem. For over a year now (Car is currently at 74k miles) I get water in my driver footwell and rear driver's side footwell every time it rains. I vacuum it out, we get a short florida storm and bam, an inch of water in the rear footwell again. There are HUNDREDS of reports on various websites on this. There needs to be a recall!!! From what I understand, most dealerships will take hundreds of dollars and several tries to fix the problem. I've done my research. Its the drainage tubes, hands down. Hundreds of other reports / fixes (even short term) agree. Its nonsense. I will never buy another Dodge.
The driver's side front drain was clogged and hard to find. Water was backing up and leaks came out of my light/roof controls in the roof. I believe a fourth drain in actually draining into my rear headlight which I will need to take apart.
my car has been to the shop , several times more than 5, thank God I have extended warranty, and i am so sick of having a damaged roof from leaking and soaked floors ,front and back, and why do they have roof drains if the sunroof window is supposed to be sealed tight. the floors leaking underneath the car ( leaving a puddle) and its not the ac dripping, so it must have rusted through or something, its sad because i like the car. and thats one of a few problems,will list in another problem category.thank you , why not a recall, feel like i have a lemon.
shortly after I bought my 2009 dodge caliber in august 2012 I started having problems and one of the problems was every time it rained my ceiling leaked on the passengers side at first and so took it back under warranty and they said they fixed it,but less then 2 months later it was leaking again and worse it was in the interior light fixture and my seat was wet both sides of ceiling also were soaked so I took it back and was told my warranty would not cover it. My husband says he can fix it but I won't be able to use the sun roof cause he was gonna seal it!!.My car has 78,000 miles on it now and I sure would love for Dodge to fix the problem for me. I have put over 2,000.00 in this car already for various problems. Please help me I am disabled 65 year old and can't afford the car as it is .
