Chrysler recalls some 2007 Calibers, Compasses

by David Zatz on

Chrysler is recalling around 25,000 2007 Dodge Calibers and Jeep Compasses due to sticky gas pedals made by CTS. There have reportedly only been around five complaints, but in four cases the pedal assembly had come apart.

The cars in question do have a brake override built into the computer, so that if the customer hit the brakes and gas pedals, the computer would automatically cut engine power.

The recall only affects cars made between March 7 and May 19, 2006.

A similar recall affected Toyota vehicles, though Toyota did not have a brake override system. Toyota also used CTS pedals, and had to recall 2.3 million vehicles. CTS denied that the pedals could cause sudden acceleration or stick in the full-throttle position, saying the only issue would be slow pedal return.
