Should the pedal bind or become stuck, it can be overcome by smart brakes which override the accelerator pedal in certain conditions.

Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2007 Dodge caliber and Jeep Compass passenger vehicles manufactured from March 7 through May 19, 2006. The pivot bushings in vehicles with oversized accelerator pedal bearing pockets may become dislodged and potentially cause the accelerator pedal to bind or stick.
Chrysler will notify owners and dealers will inspect and replace all affected accelerator pedal assemblies free of charge. The safety recall began on June 29, 2010. Owners may contact Chrysler toll-free at 1-800-853-1403.
