Police precincts across the United States and Canada are having their 2008-2012 Chevrolet Impala police cars recalled due to front suspension issues. This is also the first we’ve heard that Canadian police actually use police cars instead of dog sleds, or horses.
The total number of vehicles affected tallies at over 38,000, with specifics being that the lower control arm in the suspension can suddenly fracture, which can cause a loss of control, according to the NHTSA. As for John Q. Public and his civilian Chevy Impala, the recall will not involve them, as GM claims that those vehicles feature different suspension components.
