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.

I own a 2007 Dodge Caliber and I am the original owner. Every time I am in the shop, they say the repair is either the throttle body or the PCM and/or the cam. I believe this is connected to the gas pedal control and is a hazardous safety issue. There are several complaints on the internet for similar problems with this car. Please look into a recall. Here is a link to one place I found people complaining. There were other sites. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

My Dodge Caliber 2007 stuck in part. I take it to the dealer but they say I must pay for the repair because the gear box is not part of the transmission. The Dodge dealer told me that the chain in the gear box is broken, but I noticed on the internet there a alot of owner have the same problem. I just want to know what I can do to get them (the Dodge dealer) to look in this problem (car stuck in park).
