To whom it may concern: I am writing this letter on behalf of my parents for the great abuse that has been done to them. About 3 years ago they were really excited because for the first time in there life after living here for close to 40 years they would have bought a car from a dealership! a fairly new car, first car from a local agency in madera. The name of the dealer: madera Chrysler Jeep Dodge. They sold my parents a defective from the beginning. They knew about the recalls since 10/13/2010 and 05/25/2010 this was before they even purchased the car 11/26/2011. They are doing unlawful sales to vulnerable poor customers and are not in compliance. According to general motors it is and was completely the car dealerships responsibility to fix these recalls (please see attached list of recalls). Their solution is to well purchase a new car from them. They still have our car and have made no intent to fix it. Please help us put a stop to this bad and corrupt sales manager who takes advantage of hispanic latinos who don’t read or speak spanish. There are many families at risk who might buy a car that is defective and there can be a horrible catastrophe or death. Sincerely, maria rodriguez.

On Saturday, November 15, 2014, I took my 2007 Chevrolet Impala LS to hailey's Chevrolet for the "electrical ignition / key recall. " after my keys were fixed and the two 6mm rings were attached to them, I was driving 25 mph down the highway, slowed down for another vehicle that was turning; then the service airbag and service tire pressure monitoring system lights illuminated, flickered three times, and have remained on since then. I didn't have any problems with my vehicle; until the recall repairs listed above were performed. I am scared to drive my car even short distances now because of all the news headlines about, "airbags exploding" and fear of, what might happen with my tires. These matters should really be investigated.

Cheverolet Impala 2004, traveling on a 4 lane divided highway, at 65mph, using cruse control, 2 adult passengers using seatbelts, driver saw truck entering the intersection from the drivers right side. The driver accelerated and swerved to avoid a collision. The Impala was struck by the truck. Skid marks were made on the highway by the tires of the Impala from the impact to where the Impala stopped and the engine stopped. The driver worked to put the car into park to restart the Impala in order to move the Impala to a safer position on the highway, out of the lanes of traffic. Upon stopping the driver turned off the ignition key to the off position. The key was not on a key ring. The key had been removed from the fob and key ring upon receiving the safety recall notice, gm recall 14350. The hazard blinkers were turned on. The driver and passenger moved to the adjacent frontage road. The driver of the truck called the local police. The driver of the Impala called 911. A police report was made. Pictures were taken of the damage to both vehicles and the skid marks on the highway, made by the Impala. No skid marks were visible along the path traveled by the truck. The Impala hazard blinkers were turned off. The driver attempted to start the Impala. The Impala did not start. The passenger worked to start the Impala, the dash lights did not turn on, the head lights did not turn on. A witness moved a vehicle into position to facilitate a "jump start", the Impala started, the security warning light was illuminated. The Impala was driven a short distance and parked, odometer reading 297336. Arrangements for repair have yet to be determined.

I was driving down the street and suddenly I heard a popping sound and I noticed the car wasn't accelerating normally so I made it to my destination and I started the car up went to put it in drive and it wouldn't accelerate is was though the car was in neutral so I put it in reverse and it went into reverse put it 3rd gear wouldn't accelerate the I tried 2cd gear and it drove kind of ruff so I then tried 1st gear and and I was able to make it home at 15 mph so I took the car to the chevy dealer I bought it from and to my surprise they say there were some defective parts in the transmission and they could rebuild the transmission for 2100 dollars and I would have to pay 850 to have it fixed because my car is out of warranty as 7/23/14 the car has the airbag service light and tire sensor light that appears on the dashboard .
Tl- the contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that the tpms sensor illuminated intermittently. The contact also indicated that each time the vent controls were turned on there was a loud noise, the radio shorted and the failure was getting progressively worse. The vehicle was taken to a repair shop who reset the code and the failure recurred with the sensor randomly illuminating. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and provided no remedy. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000. Dyd.
Horrible shimmy/shake when coming to a stop, even after replacing brakes and rotors. Uneven wear pattern on tires (especially the front). Inner tread and outer tread bald, even after front end alignment. Also feels like there's some steering issues to work out as well. We've done everything possible to make it not shake/wear tires, but nothing has helped. General motors has been of absolutely no help either!.
While driving at highway speed, noticed some vibration from rear tires. Checked tires when I got home. Rear tires have extreme tread wear on the inside edge. This wear is hidden because it is on the very inside edges of the tires, and you don't notice when looking at the tires from the side of the car. Most of the tire you can see looks normal. The wear is on the inner most 5% of the tread. And it is extreme wear, all the way through the steel belts. I researched and found a gm service bulletin for 2007-8 Impala tire wear and suspension problems like this. But that bulletin only called for service on models with police suspension in the rear. The solution required replacement spindle arms to be installed. Called gm and they will not replace my consumer spindles. But I have the same problem. This tire wear has caused bow outs and crashes if you look at reports that a google search can find. Search for Impala spindle and tire wear. You will be amazed at how obvious this deadly defect is.
At just over 40000 miles on the 2013 chevy Impala, the left rear tire developed a leak. Took car to a tire shop and they discovered belts were coming apart on the inside of the tire, upon further investigation the right rear tire also had evidence of cord separation (soft spongy spot in tread). Tires were goodyear brand that were original equipment to the Impala & still had approximately 20% of usable tread left. All four tires were replaced at a cost of $643.

We had over $10,000 in insurance repairs on 2008 Impala with blue book around $12,800. Oklahoma insurance dept rules said car should have been total loss. We had to go to a 2nd shop to continue repairs as the body shop manager was fired. Carfax is now showing vehicle with frame damage etc. . And insurance company refuses to assist. We would like to forward more documentation for assistance as ftc is telling us you can assist hold fowler Chevrolet of tulsa oklahoma accountable. This is a serious safety issue also if they are repairing cars that should be a total loss besides compensating us for the financial issues related.
4 michelin hydroedge st p225/60r16 97t tires have only 11,020 miles since purchase and are showing heavy cracks in the outer circumference tread portion of the tire. . It appears to me that the tread has a bad compound mix. . Three of the tires show production code m33vf6wx5208. The other tire shows m33vf6w4008. .
In the fall 2010 I purchased the 2006 Impala with nearly 19,000 miles on it. . From the start I was having problems losing air with one of the tires, and each time I took it in, was told it was fixed. At the beginning of 2013 I started pumping air into that one tire every 3,4, days, and the grinding noise I heard since April of 2013, ( at which time it passed inspection) progressed into not being able to steer at all. On April 4, 2014,(car inspection time) I managed to bring the car to the dealership I purchased from. After spending $921. For the yearly NY state inspection, four new tired, the problem with the deflating tire, the power steering , I thought everything is "ok". Not so. As I drove the car home, I heard this loud humming noise. I thought I purchased some bad tires??? so I drove the car a little longer, hoping the noise will subside. Not so!!. So, on may 20, this year 2014 I again took the Impala to the dealership. After replacing a front wheel bearing and another bill for $526. I needed to talk with one of the owners. At which time I also discussed the steering wheel problem. He gave me all kinds of explanation. . . . . And reduced the bill to $356. . After incurring a total sum of 1,278. I do not know who to blame. The car manufacturer???, the dealer???? or my lack of car knowledge. I am a single 75 year old woman, on a very limited ss income who thought this car should last my lifetime. I drove other cars before, and never experienced such heartache as I do now. As of today 5/20/2014 the mileage on the vehicle is 43,882. I kept this car in the garage, as you can see by the mileage, this should have not happen.

My 2006 Chevrolet Impala is experiencing problems with the tire pressure monitoring system, as well as the remote keyless entry system. Both systems use the same antenna in the vehicle, and the module controlling each system is defective. Many times a day while driving, an alert will appear saying "service tire monitoring system" and I will lose readings of my tire pressures. Mandated in 2005, tpms systems are as important as air bags and seat belts in vehicles, so this is a serious safety concern. I recently had a flat tire that could have resulted in a blowout on the expressway had I not visually checked the tire because the tpms system was not working correctly. I have found a service bulletin regarding the issue with a document id of 1990156. I have contacted gm about the issue and was told that it was no longer covered by the original vehicle warranty and a service bulletin is not enough for them to replace the equipment without charging myself, the consumer. This safety issue needs to be addressed because these systems are in place to increase the safety of the vehicle and they are not serving that purpose due to poor design right out of the factory. In addition to the failure of the tpms system, the defect also makes the remote keyless entry system useless due to extremely poor range (~2 feet). This is more of a convenience issue, but it is still caused by the same defect.
Swerved to miss a deer, ran off the road hit a light pole on passenger side,tore off front tier and suspension, car rolled a couple of times, blew out most of the windows, tore up the whole interior, slid into a guard rail and landed up right, and none of the air bags deployed! I broke my shoulder, collar bone and hand, the car had brand new tires.
This car is so dangerous due to incredible wear on the tread on nearly new tires. All 4 tires are very worn when the tires have only 10,0000 miles on them. We are slipping and sliding on wet roads. Even though we have had the car aligned -- there is something wrong with this car!!!!.
While traveling at highway speed in light blowing snow, vehicle began to vibrate. Vibration was extreme and constant. After contacting two Chevrolet dealerships we were advised it was a common problem with snow building up on rims. We were advised to power wash the inside of the rims. This was done and the problem was fixed. During the approximate 800 mile trip in and out of snow this had to be done twice. Chevrolet was contacted and we were advised there was nothing they could do. The vibration becomes violent enough that highway speeds are not obtainable and the vehicle is hard to control. This forced us to travel below the posted minimum freeway speed until an exit with a power wash available.
Just bought the car 3 weeks ago with brand new tires on them, and now the rear tires are going bald on the inside of the vehicle. Going to dealership on Saturday to get new tires that they are paying for on the back, but I dont know why this is happening. Very unsatisfied with gm product, I want in on that lawsuit that is going against gm for this faulty year.
Shorting of the driver side headlight, tired system alert warning on.

The first time was in Dec. 2013. Everytime I backed up I heard a clunk. I took it to the dealership and was told it was a bad right rear wheel hub. I was in luck because it was covered by my extended warranty minus the 100. 00 deductable. The car only had 40,000 miles on it. The second time was today,3/14/2014. I went in for a state inspection and was told that the right front hub was bad. The warranty covered it again. The car only has 42,190 on it. Only 2000 miles between occurances. Something is seriously wrong here. Also I was just told of a recall on the power steering hose. Does this include my 2012 Impala?.
