CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2007 Dodge Caliber has all kinds of suspension problems at relatively low mileage: typically 40-50,000 miles.

The most commonly reported problems are with ball joints & control arms going bad. Tie rods & leaking struts are also reported failing in the same mileage range.

Unfortunately all the suspension problems means some owners only find out after they notice their tires are ruined.

We've given the 2007 Caliber our worst rating because these problems happen at such low mileage, & it involves a wide range of apparently defective parts. With most other cars, major suspension work is pretty rare under 50,000 miles.

problem #3

Caliber R/T 2.4L

  • CVT transmission
  • 69,500 miles

Brought this car in for a code read at the local auto place. They say oh it just an O2 Sensor going bad nothing to worry about. Bring it to Dodge they say the same thing. Then once the Warranty runs out, they tell us hey you need a new catalytic converter. This all started when we had only 55000 miles on the car now we have almost 69000 on it and they tell us that now. So we looked in to fixing this part and it is going to be close to 3000 USD or to do it ourselves it would be about 400 for my the CAT Converter...

The quote from Dodge on this repair is $2500 - $2700. Part is dealer only.......hmmmmm? Just does not seem right. Car runs great.....however the engine light on prevents me from selling it....I must fix the problem...at a high cost.

(reported on)

Caliber SXT 2.0L

  • CVT transmission
  • 78,000 miles

This started as a check engine light code P0 420 that started at 50,000 miles and the dealer tried every thing to avoid replacement, software, O2 sensors and spark plugs. Total time to me was high 4 visit to shop to get proper repair.
