Reliable car, good gas mileage
2008 Dodge Caliber SE
I have had my car for about 7 and a half years now and it didn't start giving me problems until about two years ago. Last year I had to get a new transmission because my old one broke down, ever since I got a new one I have had issues with the transmission overheating three times now. Overall, I have been very impressed with how well my car has held up. It's getting pretty old so I wasn't very surprised when the transmission went out. The main issue is it overheats in the summer pretty easily. The gas mileage is really great and it really was the perfect car for a 16 year old and then lasted all through college. It's a crossover, so it's small but has plenty of space.
