Considering you can get a 08 Cruiser for cheaper than a Caliber .... why? The Caliber is ugly and boring IMO. The Cruiser's got enough aftermarket support to do anything you want with it. The Caliber hardly has any support at all.

I read where the AWD Caliber has had a lot of problems and is below average whereas the FWD Caliber is a lot better and is above average.

The only Caliber I would consider is the SRT version with close to 300HP. But it is overpriced and ugly and built with cheap looking materials...especially the interior plastics

Yeah, there was no interior plastic in any of my three PT's.

At least the Pt has some interior styling..and some interior details. Yes it is plasticy but the neat dash as well as theavailable dress up mods available are much more cool. I would love a set of SRT Caliber seats, wheels, 300HP engine etc just in my 03. ....Lets see if I was able to learn how to attach a pic for my 1st time....I am learning

The inside of a PT is all plastic...Finding a ground in the PT is amazingly hard, lol.
