Default 2007 Caliber/Compass Recall info

Here is a recall that just came out in june for the 2007 calibers. I am sending this to you and you can post it.
2007 (PM) Dodge Caliber
2007 (MK) Jeep® Compass
NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles equipped with an automatic
transmission (sales code DAV) and built from March 7, 2006 through May 19, 2006
(MDH 030706 through 051921).
The accelerator pedal on about 24,800 of the above vehicles may stick during vehicle
operation. This could cause the vehicle to react differently than the driver anticipated.
This could cause a crash without warning.
SPECIAL NOTE: All involved vehicles are equipped with an Electronic Throttle
Control (ETC) system that utilizes “Smart Pedal” technology that allows a brake
pedal input to override the throttle control system.
Models
IMPORTANT: Some of the involved vehicles may be in dealer used vehicle
inventory. Dealers should complete this recall service on these vehicles before
retail delivery. Dealers should also perform this recall on vehicles in for service.
Involved vehicles can be determined by using the VIP inquiry process.
Subject
Safety Recall K11 – Accelerator Pedal Page 2
The accelerator pedal cavity number and date code must be inspected. Vehicles
found with a suspect accelerator pedal must have the pedal replaced.

NOTE: the accelerator pedal must be removed from the vehicle to perform
the inspection.

satisfaction, remember to reset the
clock when you have completed the
service procedure.
2. Remove the three accelerator pedal
mounting nuts (Figure 1).
3. Disconnect the accelerator pedal
electrical connector.
4. Remove the accelerator pedal from the
vehicle.
5. Inspect the cavity code located on the backside of the accelerator pedal (Figure 2):

6. Inspect the accelerator pedal date code.
UNDERSTANDING THE DATE CODE: The first two digits are the year
(06 = 2006). The next three digits are the day of the year it was built
(068 = the 68th day). Disregard the last three digits of the date code. For
example, the date code on the pedal assembly in Figure 3 is 06068828. The
first two digits are 06 (built in 2006), the next three digits are 068
(the 68th day). Ignore the last three digits.
�� If the date code is 06059xxx or lower or it is 06095xxx or higher, the
accelerator pedal does not require replacement. Continue with Step 7 of this
procedure.
�� If the date code is 06060 through 06094, replace the accelerator pedal.
Continue with Step 7 of this procedure.
�� If the date code is not legible, replace the accelerator pedal. Continue with
Step 7 of this procedure.

connector to the new accelerator pedal
or original accelerator pedal (depending
on inspection results).
8. Install the accelerator pedal into the
vehicle and tighten the mounting nuts to
22 ft. lbs. (30 N·m) in the sequence
shown in Figure 4.
9. Connect the negative battery cable.
10. On vehicles that had the original
accelerator pedal installed, no further

Is there a recall or TSB for the suspension on the Caliber? Had sway links / bushings fail on both 2011 and 2012 Calibers before 20K.
