Hey We have a 2007 Dodge Caliber,SXT Front Wheel Drive, Its not AWD. Its a 2.0L and I just have a question that maybe some of you Caliber Owners may or may not know. I need to know the Standard Rotor Size on this particular car, as There are two different sizes First Size is 10.86" In and other which I believe is the one on our Caliber is 11.57"In, ? I tried to measure it but the Wheel Hub sticks out so it's hard, to get an accurate measure. It looks like it is the 11.57"In. But I just thought I would ask someone, this if anyone knows Please let me know. Thanks

Yes there are 2 sizes of front rotors.
The smallest 10.8" x 1.0" for use with front disk/rear drums.
The largest 11.5" x 1.0" for use with front disk/rear disk.
In the service manual it states the 10.8" is for wheels 15" or larger,
while the 11.5" can be found on cars with 16" or larger.

Are you ready for this one.....I brought a 2008 Dodge Caliber last year it was doing fine....except for the grinding noise on the left side front wheel....than at 63000 miles the light with ) ( comes on and the car starts to shake and shuts down the brakes stopped working so I put my blinkers on and pull over. I shut the car off and start driving again....the same thing happens.
After they tow me off the turnpike....ohhh!!! did I forget to mention I was driving on the turnpike when this happen.....when pple are driving over 60mph in the am.....So the guy who tow my car told me that its the cylinders...two were not working...but he could not fix it because apparently dodge has a software for their cars and my was not put in so they could not diganiose the car and had to tow it to a chyslar dealer who said i needed a software and colis, and clean the throbble? then they wanted to fix my brakes i was like whats the point if the cars engine doesnt work they way it should.....then four days later it happen again!!! I dont know what to do....Im so mad....if they are known for having problems like this why arent they trying to help fix it instead.....can i sue?

When every i back my car out of my drive way or parking spot it makes a really bad noise when i turn the steering wheel and when i press on the brakes i would really like to know what it is.

My '11 caliber just hit 13000 miles and with that came a loud noise when braking. It happens as I'm coming to a complete stop and sounds like the brakes are wet. I had the dealership look at it when they were doing an oil change and they said nothing wrong. I know brakes Arnt covered under warranty, but come on, already? Is this normal? Do they need to be replaced?
