Dodge Caliber Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2007 4dr Hatch 158-hp 2.0L I4 CVT FWD Not as good as I would expect. The Avenger which I own now get better fuel economy on the highway and is a roomier car.
2007 4dr Hatch 158-hp 2.0L I4 CVT FWD This STINKS... I believe the reported fuel economy on my car was something like 25/30. I have never gotten above 23mpg in this car, and usually it is much lower. Had I known ahead of time, I probably would not have purchased this vehicle.
