2010 Dodge Caliber Owner Comments

problem #4

On 10/5/2016, the sub frame on my car broke due to it being rusted through. Thank goodness it broke when I was going at a slow speed, and no accident occurred. I had to be towed and it was put onto a lift. The garage mechanic inspected the car's sub frame, which was broken and rusted completely, but the rest of the car is perfect, not a speck of rust. When I called the Dodge corporation number I was told that there is no recall for this, only prior years, which has the same part! I was told that I live in a high corrosion area, due to salt on our roads in the winter. If that was the case, then why is this the only part in the car that is rusted? I was charged $1032.86 for the new part to be installed, and it also had to be aligned. I have looked on line and seen a numerous number of complaints about the same issue from other people. The local Dodge dealer employees stated that they see this happening frequently!

The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Caliber. The contact stated that the rear adjustable control arms of the vehicle were welded to the vehicle and failed to adjust. As a result, the inside of the rear tires became worn. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the tires needed to be replaced on three occasions, but the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where the technician stated that the adjustable control arm needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 30,900.

Per my mechanic the ball joints need replaced. Having spoken with other Caliber owners, it seems fairly unanimous that they have replaced or need to replace the ball joints on their cars not long after the manufacturer warranty expires. Further it is recommended to replace the whole lower control arm.
