Dodge Caliber Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

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

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

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.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

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.

Brakes -- Verified

Vehicles equipped with 4-wheel disk brakes have had a parking brake adjustment added to their 30K interval service.

The accelerator pedal bearing pockets may be oversized. As a result, the pivot bushings may become dialoged, causing the accelerator to bind or stick.

Sorry about entry here, but could not find a place to enter a tip. 2008 Caliber 'No Start' issue concerning security module. This has happened to me once and no more since today. Pulled neg. cable for 10 min. and still had issue. So, for giggles I hit the panic button, then inserted key, turned to engine start position and she purred. Then the panic button depressed again. Tried both keys that came with the car twice and no problems. Hope this can help someone else. Let us know. Thanks forum!

JUNK, is all i can say. The first new car I ever bought paid $19,000 in 06 for it and had nothing but problems. To many to list. just hope it helps someone for making the same mistake, as i did...

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!

My sunroof leaks, hell floods into my interior and my dome light. Dealer wants $200 to fix!!!!! Found out this is a KNOWN problem direct from manufacturing. Can I fix this myself?
