I work at a Honda Dealership and a woman I work withs husband is a service manager at a Dodge dealership in NJ. She called him for me and they know nothing about this. He said what happens is that the media gets it and then about a week later the dealerships get there info. This didn't seem right to me because you would think they would be flooded with calls asking about it, so I asked out Honda rep and he basically said the same thing. Does anyone have any info? Does it effect all Calibers or only certain build dates??

thanks!

The info we have is what's posted above. I would assume most (if not all) calibers producted to date will be affected by the recall.

I took my caliber in today for the recall, told me the same thing about "I never heard anything of this yet. The media got it and flood out the information.

I also took in my car for a squeaking sound coming from the rear drums, its fix but started around 5k miles on the car??...
