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.

The contacts owns a 2007 Dodge Caliber. The contact stated that while driving over 28 mph there was a noise in the rear of the vehicle. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was told that the noise came from the rear hub bearing, because it was worn out. The dealer also stated that both the rear lower control arms were worn out as well which also caused the tires to wear because of the rear hub failure. The contact was told that the NHTSA campaign number 07V196000 (wheels: Caps/cover/hub) was related and could cause unintended movement under certain conditions; however, the VIN was not included. The failure mileage was unknown, but the current mileage was 51,250.
