- Excellent stereo, glovebox cooler, good size
- gas milage fair, cvt auto trans.
I picked up my Caliber 3 weeks ago and have put about 1500 miles on it so far. Overall I like the car very much. I wanted the car to have the larger engine(2.0), auto trans, and a/c. The dealer had a silver SE with the above options and since I'm the only one who will be driving it, I didn't need the power windows and mirrors. The 2.0 has good pickup, but the CVT2 auto trans takes some getting use to. It doesn't shift gears like a regular auto trans, and uses 2 pulleys and a belt system to change gear ratios.
Fuel mileage could be better, but it is probably partly my driving to blame. I don't baby it and run 70 to 75 on the interstate. It steers and handle excellent in the turns and is fun to drive.
The stereo sounds fantastic for a base model and the aux plug in is great for my mp3 player.
The glove box has a built in cooler that holds 4, 20 oz. bottles, and really works to keep your drinks cool.
This car feels solid and there are no squeaks or rattles.
