Being a new vehicle the Caliber hasn't yet saturated the public eye. I get a fair number of people asking me what it is and a lot of people taking guesses too. (Apparently the ram's head logo isn't big enough.) Most people seem to think it's a Volvo or a Saturn, but I also get Saab and Pontiac. What do y'all typically hear?

From the front, it screams Dodge. I can't think of anything else it possibly could be, except that my daughter mistakes other it for a Magnum or even the Dakota at a distance LOL. (She thinks they should have called it a Mini-Mag, which actually makes sense.. amazing the thoughts of an 11 year old). From the side and/or back it may look like the Malibu Maxx... or any of the other 5-doors that happen to be around nowadays, it's definitely a fad. But just looking at the taillights, it's obviously either a Dodge or a Jeep Liberty haha.

On a side note, it's 9/12 and I haven't heard yet if my vehicle is in the general area yet...

I've had people tell me that it looks like the Volvo SUV (I can see some similarities in styling). The stragnest one, though, was a coworker that thought I had bought a Toyota Matrix.

Well, my car hasn't been mistaken for anything but a Dodge. Everyone who has spoken to me has even known it was that Caliber...

After I got it, this old cowboy that I know came by and said, "What the f--- kinda piece a sh-t car is this?" After I told him it was a Dodge Caliber, and I showed it off, he said, "Ya know? My wife needs a new car and I'm thinkin' this'd be perfect! Show me them drop down speakers again, and crank it up!" He even went to the dealership to look at one, but they were all out.

I made a trip by labor reasons yesterday. At the airport I parked my Caliber next to a volvo… really they are similar.

Im interested as to what peopel over here think it is (UK), as the dodge brand is new too the UK and this is basically the first car. We have a few vipers but i think they and any Ram's are all left hookers so not very popular on our roads.


Basically once we get our car, anyone that asks me what it is will still not be any the wiser once I tell them its a Dodge.

Most people just ask what it is. lol. I guess they don't know where to look for the name of a car...

My neighbor writes car reviews for our local newspaper and she asked me "Now is this a Matrix or Vibe?"

When I tell people it's a Caliber, they almost always think I'm saying CaliPer. What's up with these people?? LOL.

If you look at the front end of a Caliber & think it's anything other than a Dodge....your a tool!

It's so funny how they marketed this thing as "anything but cute" because I think every girl that I've shown it to had said that it was cute!! I've even gotten mini Durango from some people, but I think my favorite is when my boss said it looked like a magnum got thrown in the dryer on the high cycle!!:D

Mini Magnum. When I have talked to people that don't know what a Caliber looks like. I always tell them it is a mini version of the Magnum.
