Can't believe I actually bought a dodge. R/T AWD loaded to gills.....The 7 speaker IPOD ready Boston Acoustics tunes w/ the flip down speakers out the back are awesome. Had to get rid of gas pig Mountaineer, and I was starting to have some problems. So far I like it, After 3 SUVS/trucks, it's my 1st car in 10 years. I've heard DaimlerChrysler has come along way, I just hope's it's dependable. Whatta think?

I think those are too cool.

as far as the shock... ask your salesman if they offer some group therapy for the -I cannot believe I bought a Dodge- syndrome:D

Mitch, I was surprised how impressed I was with the Caliber when I saw it at the dealer. A lot of room for its size - I've got long legs so if I can fit it's pretty spacious. Seems like a pretty likeable vehicle.

I just got a Charger as a fleet vehicle a couple of months ago, so I am also wondering how reliable it will end up being. So far, pretty impressed with build quality and drives nice.

In prior years, we had a lot of Intrepids as fleet vehicles. Some ran for 75K with no unplanned service at all. Others were.....well, a bit quality challenged. Seemed pretty spotty. I'm hoping things have improved.

Enjoy it!

I looked at pics only, but did hear it was coming. Did not like the front end at all. This link has some good pics of the Compass, and good shots of the flip down speakers and IPOD setup, which are the same on the the Caliber

mitch, I also took the dodge plunge. It took me a while to catch my breath after I realized what I had done. I bought a charger R/T and so far I am extremely pleased with it. Good luck with your Caliber, sharp looking car.:cool:

2.4-Liter 4-cylinder DOHC 16-Valve Dual VVT Engine 170ish hp

Continuously Variable Transaxle II- sorta like a snowmobile, smooth and a little different. Also has autostick which lets you shift manual 6 gears w/ a clutch. Also a little different.

I won't call it powerful, but it's not bad for a little 4 banger

I dunno man yours has been out in rain:D It would match nicely, but I don't think the caliber could tow the trailer.
