Wow! Moon, dont know what area of the USA you are, but i think your dealer wasnt dealing to good. I only say that as is you take the freight out thats 19,490$, minus the 500$ rebate thats 18990$,way i calculate they gave you the paint option. well equipped Caliber though. Did you buy the extended? 7 yr/100k?

Checking to see if any one can share their buying experience/price paid in the Northern VA and Maryland area?
Dealer name and out the door price would be appreciated.

We bought, ok ordered our Caliber from one of three local dealers (the one who gave us the best price)!!!
We knew more than the salesman did, and they were going through sales training on this car with a rep from the factory...and we heard his pitch to the salesmen and woman as we waited...I should be a car salesman because this place has much to desire when it comes to customer service. We dont hear from them and I am getting tired of waiting, but this is what we are getting some day??? This car is replacing my wife’s old van. I am in Iraq and she is waiting at home for the new car to arrive…I will be home before the car gets there? We ordered our 2007 SXT Caliber in mid MAR and are paying $500 over invoice $18,500. All other dealers we talked to quoted us MSRP or above. Ours will be configured as such:
FWD SXT, 24D package, 2.0 w CVT, Sunburst Orange Pearl, Leather (heated) Seats (Gray), 17” aluminum Wheels, Cruise, block heater (we live up North and have lived in Alaska this $30 option is a must), Fog Lamps, Daytime running lights, full tank of gas and the ever famous “destination charge” $560!!!
Stock SXT MSRP: $15,425 Invoice: $14,612
Options: $ 3,665 $ 3,416
Total $19,090 $18,028
Still not sure about adding an extended warranty plan? We had one on our 9
’96 Dodge Grand Caravan and it paid for it self several times over. Sure hope this car comes in soon…been waiting almost 12 weeks… do not hear from dealer every!! Last we knew they still did not have a VIN!
#7 of 115 Trying to buy a RT but having problems. Color and Interior
Jun 24, 2006 (11:33 am)
Our dealer has what we want all except the color(they have a yellow one). They have been calling all over within a 500 mile radius. A couple of days ago they found a Black one, asked us if we would take black, we said yes. They went to go get it the next morning and it was already sold. A couple days later, they found a silver one, again, we said we'd take it, before they had a chance to go get it, they sold it. Now, today, they call and found a white one, but we didn't want white so we said no. They said they would keep looking for us. I hate to be so picky with the color but if I'm paying for it, I at least want the color we like. My first choice is black then silver. There is one thing I don't like about the interior. Why do the put the colored inserts on the seats and the control panel. I don't like that at all, I think it takes away from the vehicle. Any one feel like that or do I just have to get use to it. I'm wondering if there is a way to order a gray panel for the controls and if it would be hard to replace.

Left a down payment on a new black R/T AWD 2 days ago, picked it up yesterday! Love this car!! Dealer had one on his lot, told me he had to buy it from another dealer and have it trucked up, and had to buy 4 or 5 pickup trucks just to get the Caliber. Good luck, black looks great w/ the chrome wheels and spoiler. Now I just need some nice dark window tint and few other goodies... L8r.
#9 of 115 INTERIOR COLOR
Jun 24, 2006 (3:05 pm)
DOES EVERYONE LIKE THAT COMBINATION COLORS THE ARE USING FOR THE INTERIOR. FOR RT'S, IF YOU GET A BLACK CALIBER IT COMES WITH RED INSERTS ON THE SEATS AND A RED FRONT PANEL, SAME FOR YELLOW CAR, YELLOW INSERTS ON SEATS AND YELLOW FRONT PANEL, SILVER CAR WITH BLUE INSERTS ON SEATS AND BLUE FRONT PANEL. I'M TRYING TO GET USED TO IT.

Hi, Congrats on your new Caliber. What is the color of the interior. Does it have red inserts and a red front panel?
