Recall Alert: 2007 Dodge Calibers, 2007 Jeep Compasses

Update: The latest information on the recall can be found here.

Chrysler is recalling nearly 35,000 2007 Dodge Calibers and 2007 Jeep Compasses for problems with sticky gas pedals, the Associated Press reports. The cars affected were built from March to May 2006; the recall includes cars sold outside the U.S. as well.

The accelerators were made by CTS, an Indiana company that also built the recalled accelerators for Toyota.

According to the L.A. Times, “Chrysler said the vehicles are equipped with an electronic throttle control system that reduces engine power when there is a ‘disagreement’ between the brake and the accelerator signals.”

Just bring a truck load of illegal drugs over the Mexican border and President Obama will guarantee that you are not prosecuted. No use wasting your time doing credit card fraud when the real money is in doing business with the White House. Just ask BP.


Nothing like blaming the White House for everything that goes wrong. Too much fox news for you guys.


what? blaming the white house for everything that goes wrong???? that never happened before this administration took office....


Hmmm... maybe if you could be a bit more specific.


you continue to joke. too funny


Awww, so sad that the last president took some criticism. But really what did you have in mind?

Tony Hayward, CEO BP

Since President Obama recently forgave a $3.2 Billion loan to Chrysler we at BP are excited to see what he's going to do for us. So far our $1 Million dollar "donation" has turned out to be an excellent investment. We love "Hope & Change".

I hope Chrysler stays in business and continues employing thousands of American workers. But you know, I wouldn't have another Chrysler vehicle if I won it in a raffle. First one I owned was my parents' hand-me-down Dodge Coronet 500. Loved it, but I crashed it one year shy of when it would've been an official antique. Next was a 1986 Plymouth Voyager. A 4-cylinder, it burned up the head gasket every 18 months. Next was a 1992 Acclaim. I took good care of it, but it fell apart like a Shriners clown car. No more for me. I can't afford cheap cars anymore. Fortunately for me, Toyota's present woes presented a bottom-feeding opportunity, and I bought a new Camry at a decent price.

Okay, back to the Obama-bashing...


The Tony Hayward posting was funny but I was surprised to find the Chrysler claim to be true. I Googled and found this on CNN:


What did you expect for the most corrupt President in the last four decades? Obama accepts gifts from Goldman Sachs and BP and then claims ignorance. If only I could get my vote back!


At one point of the Toyota controversy, CTS blamed Toyota for the design of the accelerator pedal and that the flawed design was the culprit for the sticking pedal. It now seems that the problem is manufacturing related. Will CTS be fined or be held liable for any of the accidents that their manufacturing error caused? I hope so. They have dodged their responsibility long enough.


Why are the comments making me feeling like I am at a flea market?
