2010 Dodge Caliber Owner Comments

problem #4

Dec 012016


  • 120,000 miles


July 03, 2014 the internal electronic throttle was replaced, it is now doing the same thing as then as of December 01, 2016.. etc light comes on, decrease in acceleration, stumbles in take off, hesitates, have to pull car off road and stop, wait a few minutes to reset and it will continue like nothing has happened. Need to check the manufactory warranty on this part. Dealership told me they warrant the part for up to 2 years but check with the manufactory. How do I do that and know what the manufactory is?

This has happened a few different time, but when trying to accelerate from 45mph onto the highway from an on ramp my Dodge Caliber 2010 started to jerk and wouldn't let me go any faster, which made my car actually decelerate. Also there were times when I tried accelerating to pass someone and it just wouldn't go any faster, but there were no jerks.

Caliber 4-cyl

Occasionally the vehicle chugs and sputters at stops. Twice the vehicle has stalled at stoplights and had to be put back into park and restarted. Dealer ran diagnostics, but was unable to duplicate, and no codes were found.
