Failure Date: 08/20/2018

2014 chevy Impala - 50,000 miles - the vehicle will lose power when trying to accelerate. It will suddenly regain power and the engine will surge. On 8/20/18 I can to a stop at a stop sign in a residential neighborhood. I pressed the accelerator, but the car did not respond and almost stalled. I did not realize how far I was pressing the accelerator, and when the car regained power the front tires squealed from the resulting burnout. Luckily, I didn't run anyone over from taking off like this. A mother was with her child on the sidewalk and was not pleased with the way I was driving in an area where kids play. This car has had one problem after the other. I discovered a gm service bulletin pip5507b - "in ambient temperatures 100f or higher, vehicle may exhibit a hesitation or stalling condition - customers can be advised to utilize fuels with octane 91 or higher, refrain from idling, and only park vehicle in a covered garage. As long as you don't use this vehicle, you're fine. I can't believe this is a known safety issue and no recall. I guess someone has to be killed, first.

Failure Date: 05/24/2018

While driving, the vehicle suddenly loses all power while in motion on city streets and stalls. On occasion, the vehicle will stall while at a stop light during the daily drive. Sometimes, the car can restart normally, sometimes the restart is rough and the car shakes, and sometimes the car will not start immediately (one occasion required a wait time of approximately 30 minutes). The vehicle has been maintained over the years and when it runs, it runs fine. Once the intermittent stalling began, the vehicle was taken to two different shops, neither of which could diagnose the problem (the vehicle did not stall while in park, engine running, vehicle not in motion). Error codes did indicate that the map sensor should be replaced, and it was replaced, but the stalling problem persists. The stalling problem occurred once in 2017, and has become more frequent in 2018, occurring at least once per day. The stall may occur in the first few minutes of driving, or at 15 minutes into the drive, or at 45 minutes into the drive: the timing of the stall and the characteristics of the stall being inconsistent. There is no suggestive pattern. As it stands today, the car is unsafe to drive, and the repair to return the vehicle to safe operation is unknown.

Failure Date: 04/03/2015

This incident first occurred a few weeks ago while driving on the highway I got the engine power reduced message. My car didn't seem to run different and the engine light went off the very next day. Then about 1 week later it happened again but this time my car was acting funny when I needed to accelerate. I was trying to wait until paid day to take it to be checked but I couldn't wait. On Wednesday, April 1, 2015 whenever I stopped at a light or stop sign when it was time to go my car would not accelerate. I made it work ok, but on my break I needed to go take care of some important business and my car just stopped on me while I was making a right hand turn. It would not start up. I could not turn it or anything. My car stalled and I ended up on the wrong side of the road. I was able to push my car out of the way and I had to walk back to work. After work my car started with no problem and I drove it less than 1 mile to firestone tire where they did a computer diagnosis and told me the accelerator control was bad. I asked them if they were sure that was the problem and not the throttle body and they said yes. While on my way home tonight Friday, 4/3/15 engine came on and engine power reduced message again. I am very upset and scared from what I have research and read about others this has happened to. This is very dangerous and I feel I should not have to be injured, killed or someone else for this to be fixed. Signed, lakeesha talbert (very unhappy consumers).
