4 door hatchback crossover, I guess with decent gas mileage and longevity.
Purchased the dodge caliber when our van was no longer necessary. Four door hatchback worked well for the family local traveling that needed to be done..School drop off and pick up, groceries, swim practice, etc. For a small car we were and still are able to get 3-4 kids in the back seat along, so I consider it to be a little larger than other vehicles in this category. Gold in color which works great in the southern heat. Neutral tone interior which is not kind to any spills or accidents that have occurred over the years. The one and only issue has been with the type of transmission this car has. I am not able to technically discuss the exact issue, but once the car dealer fiddled with it over the course of 2 weeks time, it seemed to be fixed but occasionally rears its ugly head and seems to come and go without intervention. There is a way to 'reset' by turning off the car, holding down the gas, counting to 10 and then turn the car back on without stepping on the gas. This has not happened in years, so maybe the issue is no longer an issue. Have had to get air boosted a few times but other than normal wear and tear it has been a great 'mom' car (so say the kids) youngest is getting ready to drive and thinking about letting her take over the car so mom can get something she has always wanted.
