 I do not know what to think or what to do!!!! i have had multiple issues with my caliber since i purchased it. the first time it happened was back in 2008 or 2009 after i purchased the vehicle and it decided it needed to shut off on me in the middle of the road. a while later the entire electrical system died and i had no dash-lights/headlights/ emergency lights/ wipers/ just keep going with more electrical necessary safety equipment. then another set of issues arose... since we have had multiple parts of the whole car fixed and or replaced most recently the suspension, transmission, and the same sensory that was fixed earlier (crankshaft sensor). now only 4 months since all of those issues were fixed my car is worse then it was before..... driving down the road the vehicle will attempt to stall (as an automatic), the rpms have a mind of their own... oh and don't let me forget that the dealer can find no issues or malfunctions with the vehicle as it does not produce an error code when connected to a diagnostic reader. (just a side note i might be an idiot but a mechanical error will not produce a error code as it is mechanical and not electrical...but i could be mistaken). now what happens the day i am driving down the road with my children and the vehicle decides it is done and shuts off.... i can see that there are multiple complaints about the same issue and there have been no major fixes/recalls/statements. if it is a well known fact that dodge and their cvt transmissions have malfunction issues; why can't there be one swift fix to make the vehicle safe to drive. or since no one has died at the hand of chrysler due to these malfunctions it is not important enough to be addressed?

 With only 38,550 miles on my car (which has been well cared for) i had to have the wheel bearings replaced. when i picked it up, my mechanic (who has been the only mechanic i have used for over 10 years) told me that the ball joints were also totally shot & had to be replaced. after a little research i found out the danger i was putting myself & others in, had him do the ball joints the next day. these 2 parts seemed to need replacement way before they should have. the dealership here (service person/al) told me since i was over my 3 year, 36,000 mile warrenty, (and havent been there in 2 years) there was nothing they could do for me. immediately after the work was completed by my mechanic, i stopped at the bank. there i saw another dodge caliber pull in. while in the bank, i spoke with that driver. she told me she just had the wheel bearings done also. im not sure what year her car was but it appeared to be newer than mine! whats going on with these cars? shouldnt the dealer have had a little more interest when my actual mileage was only 2000 over the warrenty. they kept pointing out that the car was over 5 years old & only had a 3 year warrenty. to me that has no significance...the mileage is what concerns me. i hope others will take note & bring this to the attention of chrysler before there are related accidents or deaths. i did try to find a number online to call chrysler, only to come up with sales...i wouldnt buy another! please inform me of any actions taken. thank you

 The electronic throttle light comes on in the 2007 dodge caliber and then, within a few seconds, all power is lost in the vehicle. the driver has about 30 feet to get safe and stop. at this point, if you wait about 1 minute and restart the car, it is driveable. this happens completely randomly and with no warning, causing a real road hazard. chrysler is unable, or unwilling, to acknowledge this known defect and the repairs suggested don't appear to fix the problem.

 On approx. oct. 13, 2011, my 2007 dodge caliber stalled and quit running on fwy, and i imediately took to local mechanic. it was determined at that time that a throttle body assembly was needed to prevent this from happening. it worked fine until dec. 23, 2011 when i was out in the desert making a trip to flagstaff, az. when my car once again died and stalled on hwy i40. i was in front of a semi truck at a speed about 70 mph and it started stalling and then died right in front of the semi. luckily there was an exit that i veered the car into and coasted into a stop. it was towed to a local gas station where there they could not determine the cause. i was told since the car had cooled over 30 min. it was ok to drive about 20 miles to dealership in bullhead city, az. i took it to swantys chrysler where it was left there over christmas holidays. i returned to be informed that they could not determine problem and the throttle body was in working order and that was not the problem. i was informed i could drive it home, and when this occurs, to pull over and let cool for 30 min. and resume driving. i was in fear of my life and others taking the 350 mile trip home, not driving over 60 mph. i then filed a complain with chrysler corp. where i spoken to numerous customer service, and supervisors. they wanted to me get a second opionon from a ca dealer, because they questioned why i took it to az. to be diagnosed. i explained several times that i didn't take it there, it failed there. i can give names and dates from dec. 28th until now of reps. i have spoken to. when i took it to moss brothers in riverside, they also determined that they could not pinpoint the problem, but suggested a couple of parts be replaced, and it could help problem: at the tune of $800.00, but could not guarantee it would solve the issue.

 My passenger side air bag randomly disarms and my driver's side seatbelt comes undone often. sometime takes 2-3 times of trying to fasten seat belt to get it to secure. cruise control has also gone out. love my car, but not happy with all the problems popping up. it is only 4 years old.

 We have been told by our car repair techs that both of our tie rods in the front of the car have gone bad. the car only has 70,000 on it, the first went bad at about 65k and had that replaced. this is not normal and would like this matter looked into. i did more research online and found many similar complaints for that year and model. i have had many cars of different makes and never had a issue like this, not normal at all!

 My 2007 dodge caliber has a water leak that allows rain water to enter the vehicle. the used car dealer i bought it from (had it less than 1 year) said it was a gasket leak in the front fender. i don't know if this is right or not becuase the car's entire driver side floor board has yet to dry out. vehicle constantly acts as though it is going to stall. this has happened in idle in traffic and when pushing on gas from stop. sometimes the low pressure sensor oil light will flicker on and the car will start to jerk.sometimes the vehicle just hesitates for a long time when switching gears. dealer unable to duplicate this problem. newest issue - when traveling at approx. 55 mph on the highway, all doors mysteriously unlocked themselves. very frustrating and inconvenient... dealer does not offer rental or temporary car even though they have my brand new caliber that im paying for even while its in their possession. the dealer could not duplicate stalling/oil light issue and i took it to an independant mechanic had an oil change done and still did it. took it back and he couldn't find anything either. computer not reporting anything and no recalls.

 I purchased a new 2007 dodge caliber in april 07. today, while replacing the tires for the first time, it was found that both lower control arms and ball joints had failed. this causes a very unsafe condition that can cause the front wheels to fall off or create a situation of uncontrollable steering. the tire dealer told me that they had seen numerous cases of this with this particular model of car. lower control arms and ball joints are not normal wear items, they are steering components that should last longer than a set of tires. after researching this on the internet by googling dodge caliber + ball joints, i found many other caliber owners had experienced the same issue. dodge has not issued a recall or service bulletin on this very unsafe issue. toyota was subjected to government hearings, made major news headlines and fined heavily due to throttle sticking. drivers had the ability to react by putting the car in neutral or shutting off the car but with this steering issue, you may not have the ability to steer the automobile at all. my research shows chrysler has made no attempt to fix this issue, research also shows you can only get replacement parts only from an authorized chrysler dealer and when you pay chrysler to fix it, they are using the same replacement parts that failed without warning in the first place. the car must be jacked up and tires removed to evaluate the ball joints. the ball joints fail so badly it destroys the lower control arms they are mounted in. this cannot be checked any other way. this is a major safety issue for me and my family and everyone on the road with thousands of these cars on the road as well. these are accidents waiting to happen anywhere at any time. there must be a recall on the unsafe steering issue.

 The ball joints and tie rods on 2006 to current dodge calibers. they have premature wear which the company knows about. i have researched for several days and have found hundreds of complaints on the ball joints and tie rods. they begin to fail with as little as 30,000 miles on the vehicle. i have not repaired my vehicle yet due to the $1000.00 it will cost only to fail again in two years. if one of the tie rods break steering will be lost resulting in loss of control of the vehicle.

 I have a 2007 dodge caliber. while my husband was driving to work he had a problem with the gas pedel sticking and accelerating on its own. we brought it to our local chrysler dealership and paid $282.00 to have them install a new gas pedal assembily. after hearing about this recall i wanted to make sure to file a report/complaint. i still have the receipt from when the gas pedal assembily was replaced. i'm hoping to find out some information on how to be rembersed. please contact me via phone. lindsay gray 919 295 1695

 Took my car into safford dodge in fredericksburg, va because when i braked my car would shudder. i stated that i felt my front brakes were going bad. after they looked at my vehicle they stated i needed my rear brakes replaced and that my front ones were fine. upon them working on my rear brakes, they informed me that cylinder wheel was locked up on the rear left side. preventing the wheel from being placed back on the car. when i picked my vehicle up, my brake pedal made a popping sound. i thought that was because i just had new brakes put on. four days later my brakes went out on me as i was pulling out of my driveway. thankfully no one was hurt and i was able to use my emergency brake to stop. i took my car back to safford dodge and the front desk guy paul stated he felt that my power brake booster was bad. i told him that there was nothing wrong with my car before i brought my vehicle in except that it shuddered. which it still does.
