General Motors is at risk for yet another vehicle recall. The new discovery is separate from the ignition switch defects that recently had the auto maker under fire with Congress.
The 2014 Chevrolet Impala is now being inspected after a driver claimed that while operating the car at 40 miles per hour, the emergency brake automatically powered on, which resulted in another driver rear-ending the vehicle.
The driver of the 2014 Impala contacted the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration about the matter and filed a complaint. Federal Regulators are currently testing the model to see if the problem affects the 60, 580 2014 Impalas on the roads. According to an emailed statement, GM is cooperating with the feds about the latest allegation.
