Water leaks from the headliner may be cause by damaged sun roof drain tubes.

    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?

  • 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 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.

    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.

    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 .
