I have been searching for a decent deal on the 2008 dodge caliber. Not many of the dealers seem willing to lower their prices too much. but that's ok. I'm a patient girl.
Anywho I was just quoted a price of $14,724 not including TTL for a 2008 red SE plus, automatic 2.0L. I feel this is about as decent a price as it's going to get. It's the lowest price I've gotten so far.
Another dealer tried to get me to buy the base model SE for a total of $18600. I turned it down. I didn't like the manual windows.
Another dealer about 2 hours away from my home is willing to sell me an SXT w/24D pkg for $13999. I'd like to jump on that deal but I'm not willing to drive 2 hours each way if something goes wrong with the car or when it needs an oil change, etc.

You don't need to buy the car at the dealership you have it serviced at. You can have your car serviced locally even if you buy it in another state. A 2007 sxt with alloys auto and side air bags barely has a trade in value of 11000 with avg miles. This is what your 08 will be worth in a year. 14000 for a 18300 msrp caliber would be an OK deal, but wonder why you can't find a better deal on it with slow sales and all.
Drove the caliber, Small windows, blind spot on the side, cheap interior and ergonomics from hell.
Look into the 09 Nissan Versa S with power pkg, msrp 15800 for about 14300 and the exceptional 08 mazda3 auto hatchback sport, msrp 19500 and selling for about 16500 or so. Possibly the kia rio 5 auto hatch msrp 15800 if you can get it in the 12000s or thereabouts.
