#1 - Power Steering Pump problem of the 2010 Chevrolet Impala
Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 2G1WB5EK1A_. 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. It was 10/22/2010 when this power steering pump issue occurred.

#2 - Power Steering Pump problem of the 2010 Chevrolet Impala
Vehicle identification number (VIN): 2G1WB5EKXA_. My 2010 Chevrolet Impala has only 43, 279 miles and began making a loud high pitched screeching noise while acclearating. After two visits to two seperate mechanics it was determined both times that a new power steering pump was needed. Both mechanics were in shock due to the failure as the amount of miles on the car. I contacted gm customer care as I was sure this was still under warranty. Much to my suprise this is not under warranty. I have had this car 1 year and 3 months and for this to fail I am not a happy Chevrolet owner. Gm told me I could have it repaired and then wait for them to make a decision on whether I 'qualified' for assistance. In this economy and at this time of the year who has time to pay up front and wait for them to make a decision. This power steering pump problem happened on Tue., Dec. 13, 2011.

#5 - Power Steering Pump problem of the 2006 Chevrolet Impala
The car involved is a 2006 Chevrolet Impala. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 2G1WB55K66_. Last March, 2008 power steering went out of car, so took to mechanic. After paying over $400 to repair hose and power steering pump on car that had only 30,000 miles. Now in February of 2009, less than one year later, I have the same problem with the power steering going out again. I see that there are alot of complaints about this same thing.

The vehicle involved was a 2001 Chevrolet Impala. After a year of clunking sounds in the steering column, I've just taken the car in for service. I was told in the past that it was not a problem. Now the sounds all add up to $1500 in repairs, for a problem that I've found 4 other Impala owners have. Needed for repair are steering gear, steering shaft, power steering pump, serpentine belt (old anyway), and all wheel alignment (recommended for this work). All totaling just under $1700. My aunt had a similar problem, it was repaired twice under warranty. Talking on break at work, found out our company car (impala) has the same issue, another employees Impala has the same noise. This is a manufacturer problem that they will not recognize. This problem occurred on Nov. 9, 2005.
