The CSRT was a joke and the Caliber should never have been given the SRT name. What a cruel, stupid joke.

Caliber alway reminded me of a shrunk down Pontiac Aztec. I just can't get into the styling.

I'm not talking about the Caliber as the na version, I'm talking about the making of the SRT version. It's top heavy and handles like crap. It's not a nice looking car, either. The Advenger would have been a much nicer choice for the SRT badge and the goodies that go along with it.
