I agree with test driving, but I've yet to see one with a sunroof and the wife wanted a sunroof. As for them driving differently, that is what the warranty is for...with the dealer I deal with, I am already considered a pest because my '05 Magnum is in every time my wife or myself detects there is an issue ( on them). I think the PT has the similar issues as the Cal, 'cause mine sucks, but my buddies runs mint. I just want my dam' car.

there was nothing wrong with the other cars I drove so warranty would not apply. The car I bought was built better, tighter and was far superior than the others. I sacrificed color for a better quality and car would do it again, everytime. Did you drive several Magnums to compare in 05? Hope you get a good one with a sunroof and all the other options you desire. Happy Calibering!

The magnum came from auction...1 year old, 26000 kms. $18000 CDN...sticker was $33000. 55% of initial cost was good, but no test driving at auctions. I got one of the cleanest. 26 to choose I opted on 3 and he got the one with the lowest mileage. As for the "MiniMag" it better be a viper by the time it gets to me (actually I think they produce them quicker) The Caliber ordered is loaded with everything except heated seats and hands free cell. That is only $22000 CDN out the door. We'll see.

We ordered ours on August 16th and it was put in BX which means "Passed edit available for schedule." It stayed there for a few weeks and then it was put back to BG "Passed edit n/a for schedule. I don't know what's taking so long. Why would it be ready for scheduling and then it isn't? Doesn't make any sense.

Nov 29, 2006 (6:36 pm)
I am soon to take delivery of a Marine Blue SXT with 5 speed and nothing extra but the 23D standard equipment pkg. Sales price was $14,800. They gave me both the dealer holdback and the $500 customer cash. I am buying it from a dealer in Western NC and they are delivering it to my home 4 hours away, for free! I hope to have the vehicle in my garage in time for the weekend.

Please give us a full report on the 1.8 and 5 speed. There is almost no information and no reviews on this combination.

My wife called about an hour ago to announce that it had arrived. I will be sure to give feedback after I have had time to drive it a bit.
#93 of 115 Calibers on the lots, why order?
Dec 02, 2006 (4:35 pm)
I was just looking at how many Calibers were in dealer lots. There is one place that had 17 and others had 7 and up. Even the Compass are sitting on lots as well.
I have called several dealers, and there is more lies that sales persons tell about their inventory. There are dealers who will discount these to get them off their lots. The Compass and Caliber are not moving like DCX thought they would. Don't get suckered into a deal unless you get what you want and a very good deal too.

They seem to be selling in the San Antonio area. We ordered our SXT four months ago just like we want it and don't have it yet.
