I hear a horrible grind when making a left hand turn after a stop, car also felt like it did not want to go forward causing hesitation in left hand turn - very dangerous with oncoming traffic. Have had it to mechanic many times, either they couldnt find the problem or would fix this or that and then problems right back within days if not hours. Occasionally get service stabilitrac and/or abs lights, usually lights would clear by next day when I took to mechanic and again they'd either find no problem or try a fix -still a problem. I believe they're going to try to replace wheel bearing next but from all forums I've read this doesn't seem to help people either, problem comes right back, recently rack and pinion had to be replaced costing $700 to fix, within 2 days I heard the grind, had hesitation on a left hand turn, noticed fluid under my vehicle upon return home, hoped it was a/c condensation, within days the power steering is going out again - turns out new rack and pinion is leaking and car is completely out if power steering fluid again after 2 weeks. I can't help but wonder if the sound and grind isn't what's causing my rack and pinion issues as well? have owned 2 years now with this problem continuously throughout ownership of the vehicle. Approx. 68k miles on it when purchased now almost 90k have to be very cautious making left hand turns that there is no oncoming traffic as hesitation may cause you to get hit if vehicle can't turn in time. Have to completely let off gas and try again sometimes still grinds if so repeat is all you can do. Becoming very scary and costly with no fix found so far!!! please investigate! multiple posts regarding same issue some on newer models, very much a safety issue I can't even teach my child to drive in the car as I am afraid for their safety in it, as well as my own safety ever time I try to make a left hand turn.

I purchased a 2008 Impala on January 14, 2012 and the inner tires on the rear were worn almost to the metal cord. I slid off the road on February 26, 2012. When I took the car to the repair shop the front left wheel bearing was loose and also the outer tire rod on the front left was also loose. The auto repair specialist informed me that the suspension on the Impala is a common concern. I was also informed that gm recalled the 2008 Impala but only the police cars.
I had purchased a 2010 Chevrolet Impala in July, 2010. The first attempt at repair of the front end vibration was on 10/22/2010. The dealership did not recognize the vibration. The vehicle tires were rotated on 01/26/11 in an attempt to stop the vibration in the front end. The vehicle was taken in on 03/18/11 for front end noise (thump) while turning the wheels. The vehicle was taken in on 07/07/11 for the thumping noise in the front end while turning the wheels. The vehicle was taken in on 07/28/11 for a front end thumping noise when turning the wheels. The vehicle was taken in on 08/16/11 for a front end thumping noise and the dealership notices the tires were wearing slightly cupped on the inside edge. The vehicle was taken in on 09/08/11 for a whining noise from tne engine bay and power steering fluid was flushed. The vehicle was taken in on 04/09/12 for front end thumping noise, wheel bearing, transmission surge, and whine noise from radio. The vehicle was taken in on 06/27/12 for rough idle, tire replacement, transmission. The vehicle was taken in on 07/27/12 for rough idle, transmission surge, thump noise in front end and whine noise in radio. The vehicle was taken in on 10/05/12 for transmission surge, rough idle, thump noise in front end, and whine noise in radio. The outcome at this point is the dealership tried to reprogram the vehicle, gm approved replacement of all four tires, a replacement of the power steering pump, wheel bearing on driver front side. The dealerships have done two throttle body cleanings. The dealership has stated they will replace the rotors but gm would not approve replacement only turning on the rotors. This case has been opend with the better business bureau whom advised me to contact NHTSA. Gm refuses to replace parts because their computer system cannot tell them what is wrong with the vehicle. Gm has recalled the police vehicles for front end suspension and has a lawsuit pending in michigan for personal vehicl.
