Lawsuit Filed Against GM Over Impala Defect

A class-action auto defect lawsuit has been filed against General Motors Co.

According to court documents, the lawsuit claims that GM fixed rear-end problems on police versions of 2007-2008 Impalas, but not those owned by more than 400,000 other drivers. The lawsuit was filed by a Pennsylvania woman who wants GM to replace potentially faulty rear suspension rods on her vehicle.

According to the lawsuit, Donna Trusky, of Blakely, Pennsylvania, bought a new Chevrolet Impala in February 2008. Trusky claims the tires wore out with 6,000 miles. Her GM dealer replaced the tires and provided an alignment, but did not disclose a defect with the vehicle’s spindle rods. The lawsuit states that GM issued a service bulletin in 2008 for only police versions of the Impala.

The lawsuit says that GM, “despite having knowledge of [the auto defect] has not recalled the subject cars, which has required class members to pay the cost of fixing the defective spindle rods as well as for replacement tires and realignment.”

GM spokesman Alan Adler declined to comment on the lawsuit, saying that the automaker had not yet reviewed it.
