There's not all that much good news about safety for the 2012 Dodge Caliber, even though its list of safety equipment is pretty typical.

The Caliber earns just three stars (out of five) in side impact from the federal government, with an overall score of three stars, and in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests it's earned only an 'acceptable' rating for roof strength and a 'marginal' score in side impact.

Also, we recommend that you take a look back during the test drive. Thick roof pillars can make outward visibility difficult for some drivers.


In safety, the 2012 Dodge Caliber lags behind most other cars in its class.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
