2007 Jeep Compass Recalled for Sticking Accelerators

Benson KongJun 4, 2010
The recall frenzy has claimed its newest victims: 25,336 Dodge Calibers and Jeep Compasses from the 2007 model year.

Last month, we first reported the Caliber was being investigated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for sticky accelerator pedals. The problem initially appeared to be a mechanical issue with the pedal assemblies sourced from the CTS Corporation -- the same supplier Toyota had used -- and those findings have been validated by Chrysler and the NHTSA. The 25,336 vehicles (25,265 Calibers and 71 Compasses) were assembled at Chrysler's Belvidere plant.
This recall dilemma stems from the pedal's pivot bushings which could become dislodged and cause the pedal to stick on. According to Chrysler, however, the vehicles' 'Smart Brake' technology should override the electronic throttle and slow the accelerator-stuck Caliber or Compass. Nevertheless, Chrysler will have dealers replace all pedal assemblies under its recall campaign number K11.

The NHTSA campaign ID number is 10V234000. Potentially affected owners may contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403. The NHTSA can be reached at 888-327-4236 or on the Web at Safercar.gov.
