According to the experts, the car is a complete failure as far as performance and the cargo space in the class is concerned. It has an underpowered engine, feels as if you’re driving a truck, and has alousy fuel economy to its credit. Even the people it targeted – individuals or families shopping vehicles on a tight budget – did not seem taken in by the affordability.
And yet, a used Dodge Caliber Mainstreet is everything that you”d want in a decent family car. Surprisingly, its utility, flexibility, and innovative features found a place with a very different set of people altogether. The kids.
1. Roomy Interior = Picnics with Mommy/Daddy
The car’s cabin is exceptional in this one and even adults are going to agree that the interior has nothing wrong with it. The front seat has plenty of space and two adult can fit in the rear easily too. But for your child, the Hatchback design means you’ll be using the car for fun trips frequently. With the second row seats up, you get an additional 18.4 cubic feet to fit your gear and lunch basket easily inside, or even with the alternative configuration of folding the front passenger seat flat and letting them sit in the back, it’s understandable why they feel so excited about the car.
2. Comfortable Seats = A Good Sleep
The seats are supportive and easy to get into. The materials used are of better quality than expected for such a reasonably priced car. Even the padding on the door armrest has been improved to have a more soft touch to it. How hard would it be then to find themselves a good position and fall asleep?
3. Tech Features and Cool Exterior = Good Ride + Showing off to Friends
Yeah, well, you can’t blame them for this one. They are just kids. And even adults have been impressed with a used Caliber’s list of improvements. It stands bigger with a bit of swagger lent by the sharp curves, the signature grille, and the huge aluminum wheels. Does it stand out? Of course it does, and before you ask, it does so for the better. Inside, features ranging from the basic audio and air conditioning systems to the Uconnect Phone, power outlet, beverage storage color, and the recent navigation radio with SIRIUS Travel Link are impressive. But it’s really the optional Boston Acoustics system that steals the show with its two liftgate speakers, a subwoofer, and leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls for some real fun to accompany your outdoor activities.
