I bought a brand new Dodge Caliber Heat 2011 back in May, so far the car has given nothing but problems.
In the first week of owning the car it stalled out in the coming to a stop so I was applying braking power and the car just stalled out, so I had to restart it and then it was running normal. Of course I called up the dealership to see why this had happened. But in the mean time the car stalled out and again it was under braking power.
Long story short, after another 2 stalls (two with low fuel, and two with almost full tank of gas) I brought it to the dealership, after 3 days of driving it around, they couldn’t reproduce the problem and they tried flashing the computer to the latest update to see if that fixed anything.
Thankfully the 4 stalls were not in the middle of traffic or a busy intersection
Well its been 6 weeks and it hasn’t stalled until yesterday. I was making a left turn at a busy intersection and I had to brake to slow down before turning, well it stalled out going right through the intersection, thank god that I had enough momentum to make it to a gas station parking lot to restart the car. So this being the 5th time it stalled out, its going back to the dealership today yet again to see if they can fix it. This is a real safety concern as I could have easily been in an accident because of this.
I have done some research and have seen that people had problems with the 2007 Caliber stalling out.
My question is, has any one else seen this kind of issue with the 2010/2011 Caliber? Also what are my rights under the lemon law in this case? And any other info would be much appreciated!
Also on a side note, I also was having problems with the AC or blower not coming on. This happened twice until they replaced the module that controlled the AC unit turning on and off and haven’t had an issue with that since (knock on wood).
