According to The Detroit News, a group of disgruntled Chevrolet Impala owners have filed a class action lawsuit against General Motors for allegedly failing to address rear-end alignment issues for 2007-2008 model year Impalas.
Though it’s a class action suit, only one Impala owner is listed. Donna Trusky of Blakely, Pa. is an owner of a 2008 Impala and experienced her Impala’s tires wearing out after only 6,000 miles. And even though Donna’s local dealership replaced her tires and performed an alignment, the dealer didn’t tell her about the spindle rod issue for which GM issued a service bulletin for the Impala police vehicles back in 2008. However, GM claims that the law enforcement model is different than the civilian version, which is why only the police vehicles were flagged.
If GM loses the lawsuit, it could be looking at repairing around 423,000 2007-2008 Impalas at its expense.
