Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. 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.

  • 62,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Caliber. The contact stated that while driving, the vehicle stalled and would not restart. The vehicle was towed to the contact's home. The contact's spouse (a mechanic) took the rear seat out and discovered that the wires to the fuel pump were burned out which caused them to melt and to affect the fuel pump. The failure occurred twice and the contact had to purchase a new fuel pump within a span of a year. The vehicle had not been taken to an authorized dealership and the contact had not spoken with the manufacturer at the time of the complaint. The failure mileage was approximately 62,000. The current mileage was approximately 77,000. Updated 10/27/10.
