My wife has a 2007 Caliber. The dealer assures us it is not in the recall list, but since she gets free oil changes from them, you may be sure I will have them check again next month, and get written proof.

Edited. I just copied the safer gov release didn't notice the period sorry about that. Only Calibers manufactured from March through May were included in the problem.
