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.

2007 Dodge Caliber Owner Comments

  • 59,013 miles


Dear sir or madam I purchased a 2007 Dodge Caliber in may of 2007 from enterprise rental car Agency, I was never told that the vehicle would not have what I now know is called a powertrain warranty. A few months ago I purchased a warranty from a company called us fidelis and needles to say I was on vacation alone and had car trouble and this company would not honor the warranty and to add further insult to injury I was told that the repairs should come from the Dodge manufacturer. I am still a single woman living on a fixed income and still paying for this vehicle and have not a clue where or how to have this car repaired. In this tough economic time I have lost my job and my house the only thing left is my car should I now give up on it to? dear sir or madam I writing in regards to this warranty coverage, today is May 13th exactly 60 days from the day I purchased this coverage. I am on vacation and had a problem with my car and was told that I would have to wait 48 hours before some one could come out and inspect my car. I live in Maryland and the problem occurred in New Jersey while driving back to Maryland. I was told that there was nothing that could be done. I informed them that I was alone with not monies to rent a car or get home. I was not offered any assistance. Please cancel this coverage and refund the $300 that I have paid your company this is not acceptable to me.
