Ok guys, I was wondering if you could post your current ODO mileage and any comments or complaints you have with your cali so far.
I currently have 39,000 kilometers (Canadian, will have to convert for mileage) and I can honestly say other than minor issues it has been problem free. The CVT is different but I like the feel of it.

Trouble Free Miles

I have 10,400 miles. No trouble at all. I get over 27 miles to the gallon in city driving and up to 32 miles per gallon on the interstate.

Four months and 12,000km (7,456 miles). I have had no issues with the car performance wise, or with my dealer. The only minor issues I find is the hard plastic interior for arm rests and the weak body making it "soft" and easy to dent in some areas such as the passenger side between the back door and the tail light.

11900 miles.

7 months, 4 road trips and a 60 mile round trip commute.

I love it, I keep planning road trips so I can drive it more and more.

This weekend I drove to my parents house, 6 hours away, and compared it to their matrix.

I think the Matrix had more leg room in the back seats, but side by side, my Caliber just plain looked better and had more personality. My parents where impressed with the Cooler, the Flashlight and the flip down speakers.

odo

i have 24000 and 500 miles on mine no problems whatsoever, but im sorry to say that it has to go because im getting the mazda3 hatchback, and if you want real power check out the mazdaspeed3 hatchback, 2.4 liter with turbo 265 horsepower, i just cant accept the cvt, if i could have had the 2.4 fwd 5 speed on the caliber i would keep it, but unfortunatly i wasnt informed that the car had a cvt transmission when i got the car, truthfully i never even heard of a cvt until i got the caliber, i guess im just old school, but at any rate this is a good car for people that are not performance oriented, as i am very perf oriented

Kenny too bad that you're not pleased with your Caliber. But you need to do what makes you happy and I am totally fine with that. You are still welcome here but when and if you do stop by do not try to tell us that your Mazda3 is better then our Calibers, we know better.

Now back on topic.

Owned: 7 Months
Mileage: 12992 miles
MPG: 27.0 (this number was derived from total miles driven by total gallons of gasoline purchased)
Problems: 0
Complaints: 0

12,5 months and 32.500 miles. No complaints except that the sound system isn't loud enough for my listening pleasure.

My odometer currently reads 342 - 6 days - no issues (my window whistles a little)
