The Dodge Caliber is scheduled to go out of production this November, as a new Fiat-based compact car takes its place. Chrysler enthusiast website Allpar confirms the Caliber’s demise, and lists November 23rd as the final date for the ill-fated Dodge compact.

The Caliber’s replacement is said to get 40 mpg thanks to a government requirement for taking bailout money. Fuel economy was a chief complaint among Caliber owners, and the vehicle never really moved well in the marketplace. As time wore on and sales withered, the Caliber became little more than rental car fodder, and Chrysler’s decision to end production was probably a wise one.

    Thank goodness. What a piece of crap. I rented one in Memphis and thought for sure I was never going to make it home.

    As someone who really owned a Caliber I have to say they are decent cars.

    Also our base model 1.8 was getting 40MPG so Fix It Again Tomorrow (or FIAT for sort) are going to make a smaller model that does the same mileage?

    Caliber has been copied for other marks (subaru impreza, Toyota Venza, etc) now stop production is a big huge mistake.
