The failure mileage was approximately 121,000. When it comes on now, I pull off road, wait 30 minutes or so and then continue on my way which affects my long distance trips. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. The failure mileage was 166,500. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and filed a case number.
They stated they could not find anything wrong, no codes, etc. I live in the uae, abu dhabi phone: 0091502124224. The styling of the car is great. They apparently cannot identify it. It takes a lot of tries sometimes to get it to stop. I've read everything there is on these types of problems. The car drives less than 2 miles an hour when this happens.
A mechanic said the code indicated low voltage to the abs motor. Called wrecker, towed to a Dodge dealer,. The contact stated that the vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for an unrelated failure and they discovered that the engine cradle support mount was completely rusted. I've had the dealer look at it multiple times but they haven't found anything. Usually after 6 - 8 tries it will start, twice I have been stranded because it would not start at all. An most of them are in whom ever the designerror was of the computer board in the dash.
. Chrysler dealers refuse to attempt to fix the problem as they have not been able to get it to fail at their site. While driving various speeds, the vehicle would stall without warning. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. If it is not a car to be driven long distance than they should recall everyone of them! Thank you so very much for helping me!!! Please help me, this car is used on long distance trips. Note that the number of problems reported for the 2009 Caliber is 258 while the average number of problems reported for the 7 model years of the Dodge Caliber is 332. After driving steadily at 60 mph on a high way, the automatic transmission oil overheating light turns on, which makes the speed regulate.
I no longer drive it because it is unreliable. Its sporty and comfortable and just a good all around car. If only one of them is getting hot you may have bad heater core or a bad heater control valve. So glad they stand by their product. I got concerned after a couple days because the rattling turned into clunking.
In addition, the check engine and fuel warning lights illuminated. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer or independent mechanic to be diagnosed or repaired. This problem is solved by installing an extra cooler, so that the transmission temperature can be lowered. I understand that the transmission is German made Damlier-Chrysler in 2008. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer or independent mechanic to be diagnosed or repaired. When the failure occurred the electronic throttle body control warning indicator illuminated.
This is a major problem and I wouldn't even have noticed had my mechanic not put it on a lift and looked at it and even then once he took off the engine cradle to replace it he noticed the rotted parts that were covered by the cradle, thank god I didn't lose control and get killed as I travel a lot on the highway, this problem needs to be brought to light and Caliber owners need to have their mechanics check out their cars before someone's engine falls out and they get killed. The contact stated the vehicle stalled while driving 45 mph and made an abnormal nosie. The interior quality is nice but too many palstic parts for my taste. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. Gas is above average, about 28mpg combined with my driving. I would appreciate any help you can offer.
The vehicle was not repaired. It is the best car I've owned!!! And than eventually it just stopped all together when I tried turning the car back on. The contact stated that the key was difficult to turn over to start the vehicle. Just want to know exactly what that so I can change the correct part.

Hauled a large grill and had no trouble fitting it in the car still in the box. It has been in and out of service for over 20 days since June. This car is unsafe to drive. I know on the Dodge Caliber forums many owners have similar problems with the major front end parts rotting. Answered on Apr 01, 2015 if the cruise control does not activate. It really stands out from its other Caliber counterparts. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine.
Visually inspect for vacuum leaks in the release hose and valve, If the cruise control system fails to maintain the set speed, check the throttle linkage adjustment. I've already changed the throttle body, intake manifold, pedan and the transmission's cooling panel but there is no way I can speed the vehicle up. Occasionally there isn't any power when I plug something into the console, too. The car is working properly but it produces an annoying sound, similar to the one made by a blender. Had my grandchildren with vehicles coming up on me at 70, had my father in the car a couple of times.
