The NYPD prompted a nationwide recall of Chevrolet Impalas used as police cruisers after city cops spotted a defective part, officials said Thursday.  The recall, which covers more than 36,000 police vehicles across the country, is expected to begin Aug. 21, officials said.

General Motors announced the recall of 2008 to 2012 models after the NYPD alerted the automaker that the vehicles’ front lower control arms, which support the front wheels, were cracking, officials said.  There were no reports that the defective part had caused any accidents or injuries.
The NYCPD has 2,366 Impalas in its fleet and 1,613 are subject to the recall.
