2007 Dodge Caliber In New Sticky Accelerator Pedal Probe

May 3, 2010

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating yet another potential case of sticking accelerator pedals, this time in 2007 Dodge Caliber compacts.

According to trade journal Automotive News, the NHTSA has received five complaints of accelerator pedals that stuck in the open position when depressed rather than rising back to the idle position.

The complaints are limited to approximately 10,000 2007 Calibers built during a five-week period, said Chrysler. The Caliber accelerator pedal mechanism is made by the same company whose pedals are involved in a massive Toyota recall involving 2.1 million vehicles.
