Failure Date: 11/18/2016

Approximately 75,0000 miles, abs and the service traction system light kept appearing. I have had 3 repairs and nothing has corrected this problem. At 89,000miles, the lights appear and the car makes a grinding noise when I take off or turn sharpely. The weather has no affect on this, dry or wet. I push the traction off button and it stops. Then reappears. The sound scares me making me think the car is going to stop. Happens when I turn out of my driveway onto the street, taking off at a red light. No one is able to fix this problem. I have read many complaints online concerning this problem with 2003 Impala, hundreds infact. I have spend over a $1,000. On repairs. Help please, something is wrong that can't be repaired. Happening over a year, 2015 to 2016.

Failure Date: 02/23/2015

While driving onto a highway when I reach 56 miles per hour my vehicle lost power and slow down the brakes locked and the electrical system went haywire. The locks started locking and unlocking while the vehicle was in motion. The lights started flickering on and off and the car started shaking rapidly and the brakes locked up. Once I started the vehicle back up and the ignition switch seemed to be stuck and the air bag light displayed on the dashboard. When I turn off the vehicle and try to remove the key the key will not come out so I have to put it into neutral and back into park a few times before it will release the key. Since this has occurred I hear a knocking sound in my glove box when the door is open and closed and sometime hours after ill hear the noise and the electric will flicker.

Failure Date: 04/05/2008

I purchised this car in April of '08 and it has been failing since I bought it. There is a vibration while riding in the car that makes your body bounce. The dealer states they don't feel it, but I have cronic back pain from it. I have had it at the dealer several times and no fix. I took it to an alinement shop they told me that the stuts were set out from the factory so the tires don't hit the grond flat like they should. The problem causes my tires to slip out of balance constantly making the vibration worse. My windshield and dash both make craking noises now from all the vibration in the car. It makes for a very uncomfortable ride. I am on my 3rd set of tires at 28. 300. The brakes don't work properly, the dealer has turned the rotors twice for warping. Now they are grooved and they tell me that "it's normal" and I don't have the normal stoping power I should. The power stering squiels, but they can't hear it. The front end has a banging noise when going over bumps,"they don't hear",but I can feel it in the floor board when it happens. The car is sluggish when excelerating,"no problem found". The fuel econemy has decreased as well. While on an incline the car roles backward like a standard,"it's normal" I have never had a car do that without the trany being bad. When stoped at a light the trany takes a couple of seconds to reengage for take off. Tps repeated problems not working poperly. The cars handling is very poor in the rain,snow,or ice. The muffler system has a leak as well.
