This is kinda scary. General Motors is recalling more than 38,000 Chevrolet Impala police cars because a piece of the front suspension can crack and cause a crash.

The recall affects police cars from the 2008 through 2012 model years. The lower control arm in the suspension can fracture and cause sudden changes in handling that could make the driver lose control.

Good news for consumers, Impalas that are sold to the public have different suspension parts and aren’t affected by the recall.

GM hasn’t heard of any crashes or injuries from the problem, which was found after GM got reports that the lower control arms had cracked. Thankfully this was discovered before anything bad happened in the line of duty!
