Recall: More than 36,000 Chevy Impala Police Cars
GM is pulling the cruisers offline because of a faulty front suspension component.
As if the bad guys don’t already have an unfair advantage over the good guys, General Motors is taking away the good guys' steeds.
The automaker is recalling 36,413 2008 to 2012 model-year Chevrolet Impala police vehicles because of a faulty front suspension component. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, front lower control arms may fracture, resulting in "the loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.”
