Chrysler Dodge Faulty Gas Pedals Under Scrutiny

People who are following the recent cascade of news stories about defective vehicles have another report of gas pedal problems to read about. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced an investigation of sticking gas pedals on about 10,000 Dodge Caliber model year 2007 compact cars, which are made by Chrysler.

According to a news report, in a few cases parts of the gas pedal assembly have fallen off, causing the pedals to become stuck. Chrysler said the investigation has narrowed the problem down to cars manufactured in a five-week period.

Chrysler is offering free pedal inspections to owners of 2007 Dodge Calibers manufactured during the period in question.

The manufacturer of these pedals, CTS Corp., also made the gas pedals under investigation in the Toyota case. However, no connection is seen in the Dodge Caliber pedal sticking and that of Toyota.

As always, we are concerned about the possibility of motor vehicle accidents resulting from defective products. Chrysler says that no accidents or injuries stemming from these vehicles have been reported. We hope that any problems will be corrected swiftly.
