Thanks for the answer. Nothing has been changed in the car, the power and the rest is standard. Unfortunately, the car is located in a different country than I live, so I cannot check the parameters you wrote about and if he decides to buy it, it will be brought to me by the person who is there. Better to give up or take a risk?124k miles is a lot for a non-SRT4 Caliber if the Caliber has the CVT transmission. Don't ever buy a car with a CVT transmission, they are crap.
124k miles is not much for a non-SRT4 Caliber with a manual transmission. The manual transmissions in these cars seem to be durable.
124k miles is questionable for an SRT4 Caliber (Turbo). Could be fine, could be a huge nightmare. Given the extra horsepower, the car may have been run pretty hard. If the car had the engine tuned or otherwise modified for more power, stay away. At a minimum, get the following:
1. Cooling system leak down test
2. Cylinder leak down test
3. Cylinder compression test
4. Turbo boost leak test
5. Cooling system exhaust gas test
If all this and the rest of a pre-purchase inspection comes back with excellent results, then you can consider buying the car.
I agree. Get a pre-purchase inspection, including the tests listed in my posts above. If you can't get the tests done, don't buy the car.If you can't have a good mechanic perform a thorough inspection of the car prior to purchase, then personally I wouldn't take the risk...
The car is in switzerland, two mechanics will see it on Tuesday and we'll see what happensWhat country is the car for sale in? Don't need to worry about it having a CVT 2 gearbox as all SRT-4 came with only a 6 speed manual gearbox. As recommended a pre-purchase inspection by a company or trusted mechanic is a must as it's still a Dodge Caliber haha and they DO have issues at any age. Condition is EVERYTHING.
Well, I became the owner of the Dodge Caliber Srt4, the mechanics checked everything they could and luckily everything is fine, components, body and the rest in great condition, on Saturday I will have it at home; DFingers crossed then, hope its a great car. Let us know what the outcome is? Good luck
Converting to dollars, I paid $ 8,765. As for my plans for this car, I think it will stay in the series for a while, later who knows, although I would like to install a conical air filter;D I will use the car on a daily basisCan you share how much you spent?
What are your plans for the car? Daily driver? Weekender? Track? Keep it stock? Modify?
