I recently found a listing for an ‘07 Caliber that seems like a good price, but I’m unfamiliar with them. What is a 2007 Dodge Caliber’s life expectancy?

You could expect a 2007
Dodge Caliber
to last between 150,000 and 200,000 miles with the right level of care and maintenance.
The average driver in the United States adds about 14,000 miles to their vehicle each year. At that rate, you could expect a 2007 Dodge Caliber to have a potential life expectancy of about 1o to 14 years.
RepairPal gives the Dodge Caliber as a vehicle overall an average reliability rating of 4/5. J.D. Power gives the 2007 model a 79/100 reliability rating.
But several factors can influence how long a particular 2007 Dodge Caliber’s lifespan lasks, like:
  • Its mileage
  • The conditions it’s been exposed to
  • Whether it’s received routine maintenance
  • Whether
    car repairs
    have been made in a timely fashion
  • Whether it’s been involved in any accidents
If you’re considering buying a used 2007 Dodge Caliber, it’s a good idea to have it inspected by a trusted mechanic so you can get a better idea of its overall condition—and how much more life you could expect out of it.
