Failure Date: 03/23/2018

Service airbag light comes on intermittently and then goes off. I took it took the dealership and they couldn't replicate it. This has has more than one time. I'm concerned that this can cause an issue during a front end collision. Multiple Chevrolet Impala owners have the same issue and gm won't stand behind this. Same for the power door locks, driver door doesn't always open. Same issue and since they can't replicate it, they say keep an eye on it. Concerned if the door won't unlock sometimes. Air pressure monitoring system & stability trak monitors also seem to have issues. The sensors on the car constantly go off and my vehicle has less than 65,000 miles on a 9 year old car. Concerned when driving it if it's just a sensor issue or a real problem that can cause a safety concerned when driving and Chevrolet doesn't want to do anything concerning the issue. I've already paid 645. 00 for the actuator, 345. 00 for the tire monitoring system and I keep getting told keep an eye on the service airbag issue cause they can't replicate it.

Since I purchased this vehicle as a used auto on Jan 24, 2012, I have had 10 incidents of tire problems, as low air, flat tire, etc caused by wheel rims corroding causing beads on rim and not hold air pressure; have replaced 30 lug nuts; and ground rims approx 12 times. Am told that the rapid deterioration of the rims to corrosion is due to road salt mix used on local and interstate roads. Appears the vehicle was not designed for this area; fear is when a tire goes, it could be at a high rate of speed. Also have discovered the aluminum bodies of the cars are rusting much quicker. Most recent incident was today.

70,000 miles, stabiltrak warning on startup and engine power loss. Error message was about a sensor, replaced the hub and the wiring harness to fix. So far no more problems but I've seen this issue countless times and I'm surprised there wasn't a recall yet.

My sterring wheel on my 2009 chevy Impala has recently started getting stuck once the engine hs been cut off and parked. Sometimes I don't have any problems turning the key and it cranks right on up while majority of the time I have to rock my steering wheel back and forth while turning the key. My tire and pressure light stays on even after I have brought new tires and a oil change. My actuator makes a clicking noise when I crank up my car and last about a minute or two then stops.

My car started having the traction control come on about 2-3 years ago. I was told I needed a new transmission. The transmission was cracked-Chevrolet said not their fault, so, I replaced the transmission. Then, it started doing it again. I replaced the brake pads. It stopped. Then, started up again. Took to the Chevrolet garage who put it on their total diagnostic machine. Told I need both bearings on the front. At a $972. 00 price tag for this, I bought the bearings and had another garage put them on at a great reduction in cost to me on labor. Now, it is doing it again. At first it was only every once in awhile. The wheel sensors appear to be fine. Now I notice it is doing it a lot more and starting to do it when I accelerate from a stop at certain times. I bought this car brand new, and, for its age, it does not even have 60,000 miles on it. (the date that that I am using in the next step here it began is the date when it really started doing its 'tricks' a lot more).

Turned on my car started pushing on the gas my car made a weird vibration type sound. Came up on message board traction control after a couple times of it doing that, the abs and tax light come on and on the message window it says system traction service. It kinda freaked me out cause I was stopped at a red light went to go hit the gas and it said traction control and I moved a little than I had to let go of gas then try again. Also have had a couple incidents where I go to break and it makes a vibration feeling on the brake and brings up traction control again. Really would like this checked out very concerned. Don't want to get in an accident cause my car fails to take off.

Auto braking system constantly goes on / off told it's hub sensor. Replace hub same problem internet has many people with same problem, and spent more than me troubleshooting the problem and still can't resolve this problem. How can you tell if brakes are failing if this system continues to alarm for no known reason.

I continue to have problems with my front left hub after replacing. I have replaced the wiring harness as well. Wondered if there are service bulletins with this same issue. While driving the car it makes a horrible grinding noise described to me as the hub adjusting the speed of one tire to match the other. It also flashes brake assist and stabilitrack issues as well as anti lock alert. This happens mostly turning left but most recently even while driving straight down the road.

I am the owner of a 2009 Chevrolet Impala and for months my car keeps locking when I turn to the left or right. I have had the wheel bearings replaced, a hub assembly kit put on, new tire rods, a rack and pinion, new breaks, new rotors and a new break line put on and still my car keeps locking up on me. When I turn the abs and traction lights come on and I'm stuck at a pause and can't move for about 10-20 seconds. Can you please steer me in the direction as to what needs to be fixed before a serious accident happens that's out of my control. I'm afraid to drive my car yet it's the only means of transportation for my family and I. Also I have to travel long distances to and from work. So please if there is anything you can tell me or where to lead me please let me know something. Thank you.

On 01/03/2017, on a busy snow packed intersection, when the light turned green, I was pushed off the road by a large pickup truck, into a curb, which curb is taller than my Impala's frame to ground clearance. My left front tire and rim were ruined. The driver of the pickup continued north leaving the scene of the accident. Prior to gm's bankruptcy, my Impala ss, which was made in canada, is a rusty, poorly painted, hastily thrown together piece of junk. It needs many used parts with which to make needed repairs. Reasonably priced, quality used parts are impossible to locate.

After reversing, then when accelerating out to make a left turn, my car makes a grinding noise, I can feel it in my accelerator and I lose power, my traction control light goes on, sometimes my brake assist, abs, and stabiltrak lights come on too. . . If I back off and try again I can then accelerate out and proceed as normal, happens intermittently, hard to duplicate, makes me feel unsafe if I need to accelerate out of a turn then I will not have the ability to do so. I want to take it in to see if it needs a repair, but by reading forums, many many people have had this same problem with the chevy Impala and have paid hundreds of dollars to get different things fixed, and it doesn't solve the issue. Started 3 weeks ago, and has happened many time in that 3 weeks. My car has about 85,000 miles on it. I use to love my Impala, now just want to get rid of it.

"takata recall" when I turn my wheel to the left adn proceed to drive . The traction control light comes on and I hear a rubbing noise. I have had it looked at and they don't believe the wheel hub or bearings is bad. I have noticed other Impala owners are having the same issue. My vehicle is 78,000 miles and my bumper to bumper warranty has expired. I feel that this should be fixed by Chevrolete by a recall. Asap I am needing to drive accross the country of round trip miles of 4,000. Very scared to drive my car , affraid that it is the bearing and will lock up on me on the freeway. Please take immediate attention to this problem.

The abs, traction control, brake assist and sbilitrak warning lights come on intermittently while driving. A grinding noise can be heard coming from the front-left wheel.

My car has been making a grinding noise when backing up or turning left. It does it once in a while. When accelerated it doesn't go anywhere then it takes off. Almost caused my daughter to have a wreck today and I'm not pleased. Took it to a few places to have it checked and it wouldn't do it. After today, I am not to happy with my 2013 Chevrolet Impala ltz. Something needs to be done about this continuing problem with these cars. Is it gonna take someone to die before Chevrolet does something about it. My daughter was turning into a busy intersection when this happened.

At 29k the right rear wheel bearing became defective and needed replacement. This should not happen at such low mileage. Yes this vehicle is exposed to nys winters but the car is garaged and well maintained. The rear of the knuckle is wide open to the elements exposing the hub bearing to the elements and this is an easy fix simply by creating a cap on the back side of the knuckle eliminating debris exposure. It is my opinion that the part was simply defective based on several newer similar gm vehicles having the same problems.
