There was insufficient pressure in both driver and passenger airbags to prevent the dummies from making contact with the steering wheel and dashboard respectively. Structures in the dashboard presented a potential hazard to the knees and femurs of both front seat occupants. The Caliber scored maximum points in the side impact and pole tests. There is a seatbelt reminder fitted to the driver's seat but Dodge didn't ask Euro NCAP to assess the system. In pedestrian protection, neither the bumper nor the front edge of the bonnet scored any points for the protection they offered to pedestrians' legs. Most of the bonnet scored no points and was rated as poor for the protection offered to the heads of adult and child pedestrians.
