Good reviews, lots of sales, lots of fans and then… Dodge Caliber! I think the point here was that Chrysler was trying to create a small car that macho men would not be embarassed canadiandrivee be seen in. Nothing changed…I could not accelerate to traffic speed without waiting and waiting and waiting.

If the SUVette style created here ultimately falls flat, DCX may be fanadiandriver to change the concept and the name yet again, and building name recognition for a new nameplate would cost a fortune. Lean the seat back and the steering wheel is too far away.

Same as before, would be great in a smaller car. It maneuvers far better than adequate. What surprised me, canadiandrier, was the handling.

It did, and still does have fantastic, American, and original styling. I think soort may me drinking a little bit too much of that special Kool-Aid there. However, what kills the concept for me at least is the intense mental dissonance when I consider what the exterior of a Dodge truck crammed onto a compact car means.
