The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has opened an investigation on the Chevrolet Impala.

A single report has been submitted stating that the emergency braking system in the 2014 Chevrolet Impala acted improperly and has been linked to a crash. As a result, 60,000 new Impalas are under investigation to determine if there is an issue with the vehicle’s braking system. The driver claims “that the driver assist system inappropriately activated emergency braking bringing the vehicle to a complete stop under what the driver considered to be full braking force.”

According to the report, the rental Impala had just 2,500 miles on the odometer and no police report and no injuries were filed. Both the dealer and GM were notified of the incident and the American automaker is cooperating with the investigation.

GM has recently come under fire for the way it handled the massive ignition switch recall, which has been linked to at least a dozen deaths and involves millions of cars being called back.
