General Motors and Chevrolet will soon issue a voluntary recall on a select number of Impala cop cars. The problem surrounds the sedan’s front suspension; more specifically the lower control arms. If neglected, the components can break and or separate from their mounting points which would ultimately lead to an out-of-control police car. The recall affects both Canadian and American employed Impalas but doesn’t go so far to include civilian sedans. Yet.
According to Autoblog, the recall is currently covering 38,126 vehicles. The split between the America and Canada cars affected is 36,413 and 1,713 respectively and just 2008 through 2012 model year sedans are at risk. Owners will be notified August 21 and certified dealerships will replace the front lower control arm in order to remedy the problem. Because of the severe and abusive nature of the a police car’s life, the standard public Impala sedans are not at risk for failing components.
