In a class-action lawsuit that’s turned out to be a bit more complicated than most, a determined trio of 2007-2008 Chevrolet Impala owners filed suit in U.S. bankruptcy court to sue Motors Liquidation Co. (a.k.a. “Old GM”) on the grounds concerning faulty rear-alignment issues that have lead to excessive tire wear.
Believe it or not, GM’s lawyers successfully argued that the company could not be held liable based on the fact that the vehicles were built during the period of “Old GM.” However, the company recognized and repaired defective Impala police vehicles that were built in the same time frame.
If the owners win out, “Old GM” will be looking at footing millions of dollars in repairs for the 423,000 2007-2008 Impalas on the road today.
