GM Recalls 36,413 Police Vehicles in United States
DETROIT – General Motors is recalling 36,413 Chevrolet Impala Police
Sedans from the 2008-2012 model years sold in the United States to
replace the front lower control arms that support the vehicle's
wheels. The safety recall does not include non-police Impala models.
If the front lower control arm fractures and separates from its
handling bushing sleeve, sudden changes in vehicle handling and
reduced steering control may result, depending on vehicle speed and
road surface conditions.
GM knows of no crashes, injuries or deaths related to the condition.
The Impala Police Sedan is sold to municipalities in the United States
Dealers will replace the right-hand and left-hand front lower control
arms. GM expects to begin mailing owner letters on Aug. 21, 2012.
