#1 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2009 Chevrolet Impala
The car involved was a 2009 Chevrolet Impala. I was driving down a very busy street looking for a restaurant and my car made three dinging sounds indicating a issue. Before I even could read what was displaying on my information panel the car lost all power steering and engine power. Because I was traveling at about 55mph I could very luckily coast to a parking lot near by. After coasting to a parking spot I put the car in park and read the information panel, it read reduced engine power, service stabilitrak, and service throttle body. Because I know most american made cars are pure garbage I wont drive one without a ebdii scanner. After reading the ebdii scanner it showed a p0601 code, which indicates a pcm memory issue. After clearing the code it started right back up and drove for about 10 more minutes until I was at a parking lot on a steep grade. The 3 dings happened again and my engine shut off causing me to roll backwards about 10 feet almost into over vehicles. I have done some research on this and have come to found that this is a engineering fault caused by to much current flowing into the power control module, which creates a small hairline crack on the pcm onboard computer, with which many many other gm products have experienced. I feel a recall should be done on all gm products affected by this, this is very unsafe and I feel could lead to deaths. I am a 21 year old male who could control the vehicle with no power steering, imagine a student driver encountering this issue and not being able to maneuver the vehicle away from other drivers or even innocent pedestrians! I know for a fact this has happened to many other gm vehicle owners so does a body count have to stack up before a recall is issued by gm??. This problem occurred on 08/24/13.

The car involved is a 2000 Chevrolet Impala. After car has been driven and the engine is hot and you attempt to restart it, it just shuts back off. There is no significant sound when it does this, it just shuts down as if the ignition was turned off. It now takes about 3-6 attempts before the car will start. It has even progressed to shutting off while driving, again no signs of the car being off until I noticed the wheel was locked up. I have been back and forth between the dealer and the manufacturer to get the problem addressed. The fact that it now shuts off while driving poses a serious danger to me and other drivers.

#14 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2000 Chevrolet Impala
The vehicle involved was a 2000 Chevrolet Impala. I was driving one night to my friends house about 10 - 15 miles away from my house. As I was driving my car just shut off and my steering wheel locked up, so I drifted to the side of the road and tried to start my car up. I started it about 3 more times then it finally came back on, as I kept driving down the road it happened yet again. Lately it's just been happening every now and then but I'm constantly on fast busy roads and if this happens I can't always get over and it could end up getting me and anyone with me hurt. I've tried taking it to people but nobody knows what going on and I've even called chevy and they can't tell me anything. I've taken it to them before and $483 wasted because they "couldn't find anything wrong with it" this starting to become a problem because I need reliable transportation. This engine shut off without warning problem happened on Friday, Jul. 11, 2008.
