GM/Chevrolet Impala Defect Class Action Lawsuit
By Matt O’Donnell
A federal class action lawsuit claims General Motors’ 2007-2008 Impalas have defective rear spindle rods that cause wheel misalignment and premature tire wear. The Impala class action goes on to say that even though GM issued an Impala recall for Chevy Impalas that operated as police vehicles, it won’t honor warranties for identical cars owned by customers who aren’t police.
According to the GM/Chevy Impala class action lawsuit:
“The model year 2007 and 2008 Impalas were sold with common defective rear spindle rods that caused and continue to cause wheel misalignment and premature tire wear. Even though it has issued a recall bulletin for model year 2007 and 2008 Impalas operated as police vehicles, GM has failed to honor its warranties with Plaintiff and the putative class, by failing to correct the manufacturing defect in their vehicles. There are no relevant material differences between police vehicles and class members’ vehicles relating the defective spindle rods.
“The fact that GM moved to fix certain Impalas shows that it knew of the defect. Despite this, GM continued to sell and has refused to honor the warranties on hundreds of thousands of defective and potentially unsafe vehicles.”
The Impala defective rear spindle rod class action lawsuit is brought on behalf of all persons in the United States who purchased or leased a model year 2007 and 2008 Chevrolet Impala. It is seeking class certification, compensatory damages for Class Members, exemplary damages, and more for Breach of Express Warranty and Injunctive and Declaratory Relief.
