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. see full Dodge Caliber review

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. see full Dodge Caliber review
