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.

Caliber 4-cyl

The dealer has had my vehicle a total of 27 days not including the days it is currently at the dealership in 6 occurrences. All occurrences have been electrical problems. Because of the severity of the problems my wife does not any longer feel safe driving the car with my children fearing it will either leave her stranded or even worse catch on fire while driving it.
