 After parking a 2008 impala on a flat concrete surface i took the lug nuts off the passenger side front tire . i then placed the jack (which had never been used before ever ) under the proper fitting points as shown in the manual behind the front wheel. and jacked the car up until the tire could be removed from the car. after the tire was completely off i was visually inspecting the the break pads but not touching it when the jack began to break off from the base. as i moved away to protect myself the jack completely broke away from the base and the car landed on the ground, broken jack and rotor . i then called aaa who took a 3 ton jack and inserted it under the front of the car and jacked it up enough to put the tire back on . never in my life have i seen this happen before and i have changed the tires on many cars and trucks. i am taking it to the dealership tomorrow who will be inspecting my car and hopefully replacing the jack.

 Overheating and dangerous, quick pulsation of brake rotors on my 2008 chevrolet has always been a constant and stressful experience when driving in hilly, mountainous country. i had the same problem with a 2001 impala. gm has got to address this inherent weakness in the impala's braking system.

 Owner was trying to replace his right front tire at the time of the collapse. his car was on a flat surface and he installed the jack according to the instructions. upon raising the car the jack bent allowing the car to shift and fall down. when taken to the dealer for a replacement, they claimed it was not used properly. after talking with several people claiming this was a safety issue, the dealer agreed to supply a new one only if the failed jack was given to them he declined and is willing to send it to nhtsa for inspection. owner feels this is clearly a safety issue and should not have happened on a new car. updated evoq 03/18/11
