    The tire pressure indicator on the dash lit up today. All tires are showing equal pressure (32). My wifes 300C did the same thing once. It would have to act up on a Sunday night. I have to take my son to Newark airport then to JFK with one of my Mopar Buddys. I sure hope it's just a...

  18. Road noise reduction?

    Dodge Caliber SRT4 General Discussion
    I am interested in the Caliber SRT4 and have test drove some '08 cars. I like the turbo and the over all setup of the car. I find the other Calibers to be underpowered and lacking in brakes. But, I am willing to trade some of this power for a quieter ride if I have to. One '08 that I drove...
