Impala owners file lawsuit against GM

A lawsuit has been filed against General Motors by people who own the Impala sedan.

The class-action suit claims GM repaired faulty rear-suspension rods on police-car versions of 2007 and 2008 Impalas but did not fix the problem in 400,000 Impalas owned by other drivers.

According to the lawsuit, the defect causes tires to wear out more rapidly, costing owners money in replacement tires and parts.

GM has not commented on the lawsuit.
