Driver and passenger seat belts have cuts in the out side edges. Seems to be caused by the re-tractor mechanism as the cuts are inside the door pillars when they are retracted. Has this happened on any other Impalas and what should we do?.

The bolt/clip to the passenger side front seat belt clip to the b-pillar fell off while driving without any pressure applied. The same happened approximately six months ago. After both times, I had to screw and tighten the bolt/screw to reattach the seat belt clip to the b-pillar. Seat belts are one of the most important safety components of a vehicle. Failure of the b-pillar clip/support of a seat belt in the event of a collision would likely result in a catastrophic injuries, which may have been preventable should the seat belt have functioned property as intended.

We own the car listed above and have for over two years. We bought it at a dealership in east tennessee. The car was previously used as a rent a car for enterprise. Not even a year after we bought the vehicle we had to replace the transmission. The biggest problem is the fact I have drove this car and all issues stated for a recall we have had a problem with. The most recent is the vehicle shutting off while driving it on highways. It's is saying service engine light mad than will say service traction control,than it will shutoff I been going 70 down an interstate and it shutoff mad about kill us. We had the vehicle checked and the accelerator pedal sensor or something like that is the problem by what technician say. I am just now starting to research the issues we have and found numerous recalls on this vehicle in which we have the problems listed above and more. Mainly the airbag steering control arm and vehicle just shutting off. I guess the best way to sum it up is they sold us a lemon perhaps but after looking at the recall list our vehicle meets the requirements for sure. Too many problems for a new vehicle. Just looking to take care of the problem before the car injures us or someone else on the highways. Hope this doesn't take long to get resolved because deaths could occur. Thanks for your time hope to speak with someone soon before it's too late. I mean I thought something major was wrong but the automd website really assured what we been thinking. Thanks for your time.

Potential defective seat belt assemblies causing airbag lights to come on and off intermittently when the seats are moved forward and backwards. Local repair shop performed diagnostic test and the code displayed led them to the passenger side air bag. Within a day of the repair the light came back on but went off and has not illuminated since. I have contacted gm (case # sr # 71-13111-46047) and they have refused to assist stating there are no recalls for this issue for the Impala and will not reimburse me since I used a local repair shop and not a gm dealership. I believe this is a defective seat belt assembly that gm has installed in chevy Impala’s and they refuse to take ownership. Their track record with faulty parts and failure to recall unsafe vehicles has been proven. I feel this is a serious safety concern and I am asking the ntsb look into this matter.

I was involved in an accident on may 4, 2014. I hit another vehicle from the rear. There was extensive damage to my vehicle yet my air bag did not deploy. Also my seat belt failed to lock. As a result I hit the steering wheel with my mouth. I also hit the windshield with the top of my head. My teeth cut into my bottom lip and I had to go to the er later that night because of the pain. I feel that had the airbag deployed I wouldn't have sustained the injury that I did.

My seat belts won't lock properly. The passenger belt has the most issues and you have to push it in and then click it. In and then you can't guarantee it will stay locked.

I bought this vehicle used 17 months ago and have had intermitten problem with seatbelt but yesterday the seat belt would not buckle into latch on driver's side at all, checked for debris, coins in the way, not there. The red release latch will not release and pop back open so that it can accept the buckle. I called the dealer and he said there are no recalls for this item and I can bring it in and pay $106. 00 for them just to look at it. I am going to try and find the parts to fix it myself.

May 2013 I purchased a 2012 Impala fully certified by the chevy dealer. On 9/25/2013 I was stopped on I-80 due to traffic. A woman traveling 53 mph slammed into me causing me to take out the next 3 cars. I filed an investigation with gm to review the vehicle information (which is how I know how fast she was traveling). The airbag light was on, but no airbags deployed, and the seat belt had restrained me only after I violently bounced off of the steering wheel. When this was reported to gm it was stated that there are three lines of defense in a vehicular accident #1 the body of your vehicle #2 your seat belt #3 airbag deployment. 2/3 lines of defense had failed me. Gm had no conclusion after the accident and I received the reports from the engineers. I was traveling fast enough into the car ahead of me for the airbags to have deployed, and the seat belt should have restrained me. Nearly a year later, I am greatful that one line of defense had prevented further injuries, but this is something that I will forever feel the negative impacts of. With recent news investigations into gm's faulty airbag deployment, clearly they can look beyond just the older models of Impalas.

August 2013 involved in a car accident, quick deceleration, frontal crash. Other driver pulled into traffic, with her view blocked of moving traffic approaching her. Once the truck driving in front of me turned she was stopped in the roadway. I attempted to stop my car quickly but did not have more than 4 seconds in which to stop my car. I impacted the front end, driver side quarter panel, and engine compartment of a 2005 Honda civic. The 2005 Chevrolet Impala shoulder harness locking mechanism failed. The airbag did not deploy at the time of the accident. My body propelled forward upon braking and I impacted with a fully extended shoulder harness. The length of the shoulder harness only extends to 1. 5 inches from the steering wheel, my body continued to travel beyond the extension of the harness causing injury to my left clavicle, upper sternum, neck, shoulders and ribs. My upper body, sternum and torso hit the steering resulting in whiplash, to include abdominal, neck, sternum, clavicle, shoulder and scapulothoracic injuries. My knee hit the dash underneath the steering wheel.

I own a 2008 Chevrolet Impala. Today 11/03/2012 while driving to work the check engine light came on with a message indicating "engine power reduced". I researched the issue and discovered the accelerator pedal sensor is malfunctioning and this causes the message and check engine to appear. This sensor affects the cars drivability and causes limited speed in the vehicle. I looked on google and there are several complaints regarding the same issue. I guess no one has reported it but it seems very common amongst Chevrolet Impala model cars 2006 and up. . Read more...

I was knocked unconscious and have no recollection until gaining awareness in the hospital. The wreck happened in robinson township, PA and I was driving home. The airbag did not deploy as it should have. Thankfully, I was wearing my invisalign, which significantly minimized the sharpness of my teeth or else I would have lost half my tongue. It was still severely damaged and you can see the scar. A mri showed the concussion. I had to spend $6,000 on my car to be fixed. It took me almost a month to be able to walk on conrete due to the damage to my body. I have been through physical therapies and still have neck and nerve damage.
