I've had this car for 9 years now, and the best thing about it was the lifetime power-train warranty because I purchased it new. I've since had the transmission replaced twice. Fairly dependable. The batteries last a long time on this vehicle. Only once have I had it refuse to start and that was a starter issue. Pretty inexpensive - one of Chrysler's cheapest cars. It survived a rear-ending accident like a champ! Tires wear evenly. I'm pretty happy with it and will continue to drive it.
Story
I purchased this car brand new with 15 miles on it. That was an exciting day.
Pros
solid build, sturdy, compact, seats 5, cute/visually appealing, hatchback (5 door), front wheel drive (performs well in the snow)
Cons
automatic transmission faulty (had to replace it twice, no bells or whistles, not a lot of power/get up and go (only a V4), limited visibility/blind spot, 23-30 mpg

The caliber is a very neat little car. It handles really well on the road. The sleek design of the exterior is rather appealing. The interior is clean and comfortable. My one complaint regarding comfort would be the awkward design of the driver and front passenger head rests. They angle forward too far for my comfort. I get roughly 30 mpg on the highway. I drive to a different city (35 miles) for work everyday and have to fill the tank once a week. In 25 months I have had to have the car realigned only once.
Story
I took a road trip with my friends across the country in my car. We were all comfortable enough to take naps (not the driver of course!) anywhere. There was even enough room to play a fun game of Apples to Apples in the back seat!
Pros
The maintenance indicator lights are very useful. The alerts appear soon enough that I had about 30 days to complete the maintenance (oil change, battery, low fluid) before troubles would arise. The small size of the car makes for a very fun drive. Save for the blind spot issue, I am easily able to navigate in and out of traffic. The car accelerates at a good speed. I am able to get up to 75 to merge onto the highway in less than 30 seconds. When the wind speeds increase, the car does become difficult to control. There is tons of space in the car. The back seats fold down. I really like th... (more)
Cons
The biggest problem I have with the car is the size of the blind spot on either side. The angle of the hatchback and the size of the frame in the back cause for a rather large blind spot. The Caliber is small enough to easily navigate in traffic, but the width of the frame makes it a bit difficult.
