My Caliber will be my 4th Dodge.

2000 Ram CC 1500 4x4. Had some transmission problems that the dealer could not resolve. They're a great dealer and tried hard but just couldn't fix it. So they made me a heck of a deal to swap out of it and into another Ram.

2001 Ram QC 1500. Great truck. Never any problems with it at all. Just traded it in after 5 years and 75,000 miles for my Caliber.

2004 Durango Hemi 4x4. One heck of a nice SUV. I have 36,000 miles on it and it's been perfect in every way. I use it to tow a small trailer in the summer and skiing in the winter.

2007 Caliber. Only had it a week and love it. Fun car.

I did have a 1989 Pontiac Firebird. While it was a fun car it was junk. Went through 4 rear main seals in 50,000 miles. Leaked oil all over the place so when the warranty ran out I got rid of it. I know too many people with GM vehicles that are constantly in the shop. Never again.

1989 Dodge Omni, 2.2L/manual, silver.

Drove it to 115k, then sold to a friend who drove it to 130K until it gave up the ghost. It was a great car (except for it's bland looks and relatively short life compared to other foreign cars). And for some odd reason it drove very well (for a front wheel drive car) in snow and ice.

Don't see no K cars in that list

Looks like yer a recent convert. Kewl list.
I am a long time GM guy, having owned 3 Camaro's (a 1990 IROC-Z, 1994 Z-28, 1999 Hugger Orange SS), a 1988 Monte Carlo (First Car), a 1994 Impala SS, a 1995 Olds Cutlass Convertible, a 1991 S-10, and a 1993 GMC Sonoma.

However, I have seen the light and have no regrets. Mopar or No Car!

I grew up with a few Chrysler family cars (does that count as Mopar?) starting with a couple of Valiants in the early 60s and then a Polara.

My very first car was a Chrysler product also, a 1971 Simca 1204.

So I've come full circle, back to DCX with a FWD Caliber.

Many, Many of these vehicles I had for a VERY, VERY short time. Lots of them needed minor repairs and bought em cheap repaired them and waited for the next car to come along and then sell the current one to a friend in need. I was always the guy to go to for cheap semi-reliable cars. In the 80's, these cars were dirt cheap. Then into the 90's when the K's and Fifths rolled around I would have less than 100-200 in each car usually!!

I probably forgot a few here and there.

Wow, that's a lot of Mopar! ...and all in 6 years. Do you just like trading them every year for a new one (my grandfather has done that with Corvettes since 1984... a new Vette each year.)?

I trade out, on average, every 6 to 8 months.

My father is a retired Mopar employee. I've pretty much only driven Chrylsers and Pontiacs :)
I must be cut from the same cloth tundra - I've always been a Pontiac freak, but when it came time to buy my first new car I went with a Dodge because there were no Pontiac trucks. Anyhow, here's my list (a short one)...

2003 Dakota 4x4 3.9 - I often wish I never got rid of it. It was the nicest styled truck I've ever seen, but it was a regular cab with bucket seats so it didn't have much room. It also had a noticeable tick that the dealers refused to address. It was my first new vehicle

2004 Ram 4x4 4.7 - Just traded it in. Even though it was a bigger truck with a bigger engine, it got the same gas mileage as my Dakota did, 13 to 15. Ouch!

2007 Caliber SXT 2.0 - So far so good!

Now for the Pontiacs!
1977 Grand Prix 301 2bbl - My first car. I loved it. Had it seemingly forever, even swapped in a rebuilt engine at one point. I would still have it today if not for Cleveland winters causing it to rust out and disintegrate into nothing.:(

1965 GTO - A real goat, not a clone, although it did have a Pontiac 350 in it instead of the original 389. I bought it right out of high school, put a ton of work into it, and sold it a few years ago when I bought my house. Surprisingly, I don't miss it that much, mostly because I still have my....

1979 Trans Am 403 4bbl - Beautiful, solid car! Last of the big bore factory engines. People dog on the 403, but the fact is that in a quarter mile I ran 15.39 with the only mod being a gear swap from to 3.23's. It is currently undergoing an engine swap. I have another 403 built by Marshall engines awaiting transplant.

Other Mopars that family members have owned include a seventy-something Plymouth Satellite, a 1972 Dodge Dart, a 1970 Charger, a 1981? dodge Omni.

Oh...and two Toyotas...NEVER AGAIN

and obviously by the length of time owned...the '96 Ram was my favorite with the '03 coming in a close second...only the fuel prices dictated the trade of that one

My first car was a 1988 Dodge Lancer. We have pics from when I was in Kindergarten sitting in it so we definitely got a lot of use out of it! :)
