Failure Date: 11/01/2016

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. This usually occurs while accelerating from a dead stop or making left turns from a dead stop. I have gotten both hubs replaced and it still is happening.

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.

My car has warn out two sets of tires on the rear . The still is showing . I have always known the front tires to ware out twice as fast as the rear. However, it is not happening with this Impala. For some reason the steel in the tires are always showing close to the middle of the tire. I don't drive much so this is a big problem for me. When it happened the first time with the tires that came on the car, I bought a new set and had the car aligned. It has done it again so I believe there is a defect in the car.

When starting from a standstill, the traction control system seems to kick in and the indicator light comes on. Initial occurrences only seemed to happen when turning left from a standstill, but now it is occurring when turning either direction from a standstill. This is occurring at low speeds on both dry and wet pavement with very little acceleration (I. E. , no tire slippage).

The vehicle would not stop after applying brakes made awful noise and I rear ended a car. It was clear, dry and sunny at the time and should have been able to stop. I believe the stabilitrak system is faulty. The tire pressure sensor has now started coming on since the car accident. The dealer that the body shop took the car to after it fixed the front bumper said it's not the tire sensor that's bad.

In sept of 2015 we had a blow-out while on I-71 in ohio we were traveling at about 75 mph and were lucky enough to be almost upon and exit ramp where we could get off and put on our "donut" and proceeded to a tire store where we had to buy a new tire. We did not take a picture, figured we hit something in the road. Then two weeks ago (10 Jan 16) my wife, on the way to the store turned around and came home and complained that the tire pressure was low one of the tires also told me that the previous day when she and my sister were coming home on the highway the previous day that the car didn't seem to handle normal thought it was due to construction and rough road. . I went out to air it up and while airing it up I noticed a ply separation on the inside of the tire. So I put the "donut" on and took it to the shop the next day to replace that tire, only to be informed that another tire was worse than the one I indicated. So not trusting the fourth tire I had the three original tires replaced. These tires were goodyear, the original tires that came on the car when we bought it new. My wife called goodyear and was told to take the tires to moody's a goodyear store in franklin TN and have the tires assessed which we did and they called goodyear and gave them their report.

Inside of rear tires have abnormal wear. I was informed by the tire dealership yesterday that my cooper tires that I put on in March of 2014 have to be replaced. They are bald on the inside. I have driven less 18,000 miles. I have researched this and found that it is an issue for this model. Gm has fixed the problem on police issued models.

I was driving down hwy 85 around 5;30am and just passing exit 20/new hope when I hit a huge pot hole in the road on the far right lane. After hearing a loud noise I pulled over and saw that my rim was cracked open on the front right side and slightly slit on the rear right tire.

Service stability message comes on when making turns and the tire makes a sound. The vehicle just started to do this about a week ago. I reviewed comments from other users online and it appears there are several people with 2013 Impala's that have the same problem. It happens when turning or when accelerating which makes it very harmful.

Tire pressure monitoring system sensor/light stays on. Won't reset. Had to take to dealer. This is a known common problem with chevy/gm vehicles. Tire pressure was good, all tires were good (set to manufacturer's specs. ).

The service tire monitor system light comes on, and from asking mechanics and others that have had this issue, it is not just the replacement of a sensor or part. Was very nerve racking when it first happened since I thought that there was a serious problem with one of my tires (since it showed one at 0 psi), but it was just a glitch. If something really was wrong, I would have no idea since this seems to be a problem that happens occasionally without there being a real issue.

I just purchased my vehicle 3 months ago and about 2 weeks ago, I've been having issues with traction control, abs and service stabilitrak. It seems I get this problem when I just start my car and try to turn the wheel right, at low speeds it feels like it's grinding. This problem has happened a few times since then (not consistent) and every time it grinds I get a traction control light pop up. This problem is happening when there is no rain or snow on the road. I have done some research and it seems a lot of people are having the same issue with Chevrolet Impala's. I believe this should be recalled it is very dangerous!.

Routine rotation of tires at pepboys after alignment revealed radial pull in all 4 tires. Pepboys sent me to goodyear service stores, girvin rd. Jax FL. . They depth gauged all 4 tires at 25% and stated "the eagle ls2 tires installed on new cars are not of the same quality that are sold in the goodyear stores, ie inferior. I filed complaint to goodyear and they sent me to goodyear stores atlantic blvd jax, FL. Where they confirmed all4 tires had radial pull,( causes vehicle to pull to the curb) and they could not correct with alignment. They offered to replace the tires with the same eagle ls2 for $490. 34, an outrageous price since the tires were defective. Mgmt. At this store also stated the tires on the car are not the same quality that they sell, and this is outright fraud on the public since there are no marks on the tires indicating seconds or of lesser quality then store tires of same size and make. Gordon chev service mgr. Also spoke to agoodyear high level mgmt person and she to confirmed goodyear tires sold to gm, walmart, sears, and other outlets are not of the same quality as the same tire sold in the goodyear store. This is fraud on the public and needs to be addressed post haste. Please help as a serious accident will surely happen when thes defective tires cause my vehicle to drift off road into the culvert.

Subject: 2008 Chevrolet Impala rear tire wear. Case # 71-1461945158 VIN # is 2g1wt55n681243808 we are having a problem with our 2008 Chevrolet Impala. Our rear tires are wearing out twice as fast as the front tires. I went to costco yesterday to have my tires rotated, after looking at the rear tires we had to buy new ones because the back tires were worn down to the metal backing, the front tires were still good. Only one half of the warranty had been used. The tires were michelin x-radial dt mich passenger s/t p225/60r16 bw mspn 17457 tires with an 80,000 mile warranty. We ended up buying four new michelin tires for around $600. 00. The costco guy thought that something must be wrong with the car. After I got home I checked on the internet as to what could cause this problem and found out that there was a problem with the 2007 and 2008 Chevrolet Impala's. There had been a service bulletin #08032a sent out in 2011 to replace the spindle rods on all the 2007 and 2008 Impala's that were sold as police cars to fix this problem that they were having with rear tire wear. I would like to see that service bulletin extended all the other 2007 and 2008 Chevrolet Impala's. The part number for the spindle rod is the same on all 2008 Impalas, police or non police. This is a major safety problem and people are going to be killed if this problem is not fixed, you just don't expect the tires to wear out so fast. We had just finished a trip were we drove freeway speeds up to 75 miles an hour. After seeing our tires I don't know how we keep from having a blow out on the back tires. I think that lots of accidents have happened with these 2007 and 2008 chevy Impalas with tires blowing out because rear tire wear because the spindle bolts are engineered wrong and every one thinks its the tires fault. . Gm needs to fix this problem and replace the four spindle bolts.
